Opis - "Królowe rywalki" to porywająca i autentyczna opowieść o przebiegłej, żądnej władzy Katarzynie Medycejskiej i wytwornej, namiętnej królowej Margot - matce i córce - których konflikt ukształtował historię XVI-wiecznej Europy. Pochodząca z możnego florentyńskiego rodu Medyceuszy Katarzyna słynęła z makiawelicznej polityki i bezwzględnych ambicji. Dominowała na tronie Francji przez trzydzieści lat, podczas których królestwo było rozdzierane przez starcia polityczne i religijne. Jej najmłodsza córka Małgorzata, powszechnie podziwiana jako jedna z najpiękniejszych kobiet Europy, była upartym, wolnym duchem i jedyną przeciwniczką, której matce nie udało się zastraszyć ani ujarzmić. Pod pretekstem pojednania Katarzyna zaaranżowała małżeństwo żarliwej katoliczki Małgorzaty i jej kuzyna Henryka z Nawarry, przywódcy stronnictwa protestantów. Zaledwie pięć dni po ceremonii zainicjowała brutalną rzeź, podczas której stracili życie wszyscy ślubni goście pana młodego oraz przeszło pięć tysięcy protestantów w całej Francji. Małgorzata - zniewalająca, inteligentna i wielkoduszna - stanęła w obliczu przejmującej decyzji, od której zależał los całego królestwa. Książka "Królowe rywalki" to pełna szczegółów i napisana ze swadą, żywa opowieść o władzy i miłości, wielkiej polityce, dworskich intrygach, zdradach, zbrodniach i wielkich skandalach renesansowej Francji.

Manuscripts of His Grace the Duke of Portland, Vol. 4 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Manuscripts of His Grace the Duke of Portland, Vol. 4: Preserved at Welbeck Abbey The first volume of the Calendar of Harley letters and papers concluded with the year 1700, immediately after the death of Sir Edward Harley, and a month or two before the first election of his son Robert to the Speakership of the House of Commons. A few of the earlier pages in this volume contain abstracts or copies of other letters written in 1700, which were not forthcoming at the time when the first volume was completed at press, but the main portion of the manuscript material here printed ranges in date between 1701 and the end of May 1711, just after Robert Harley's elevation to the peerage as Earl of Oxford and Mortimer and his appointment to the supreme office of Lord Treasurer. The letters, private and confidential for the most part, addressed to Robert Harley and to members of his family by persons of greater or less eminence during that interesting and eventful period of our history, cannot fail to attract attention; but it will be no surprise to those readers of historical and biographical tastes, to whom the annals of Queen Anne's reign are specially familiar, to find that the main events and the characters of the leading statesmen as conceived by them will need few modifications on account of the new contemporary evidence printed for the first time in the following pages. The attraction of such correspondence, passing during such a well-known period, is rather to be looked for in the minor details of events and in the glimpses we get from it of many interesting persons not necessarily in the front rank of eminence. On one point, however, of some historical and of great literary and biographical importance, this volume may claim to be somewhat of the nature of a revelation by recording the very intimate relations, for public purposes, which existed for many years between Harley and De Foe.

Marie Antoinette's Head Globe Pequot Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Marie Antoinette has remained atop the popular cultural landscape for centuries for the daring in style and fashion that she brought to 18th century France. For the better part of the queen's reign, one man was entrusted with the sole responsibility of ensuring that her coiffure was at its most ostentatious best. Who was this minister of fashion who wielded such tremendous influence over the queen's affairs? Winner of the Adele Mellen Prize for Distinguished Scholarship, Marie Antoinette's Head: The Royal Hairdresser, The Queen, and the Revolution charts the rise of Leonard Autie from humble origins as a country barber in the south of France to the inventor of the Pouf and premier hairdresser to Queen Marie-Antoinette. By unearthing a variety of sources from the 18th and 19th centuries, including memoirs (including Leonard's own), court documents, and archived periodicals the author, French History professor and expert Will Bashor, tells Autie's mostly unknown story. Bashor chronicles Leonard's story, the role he played in the life of his most famous client, and the chaotic and history-making world in which he rose to prominence. Besides his proximity to the queen, Leonard also had a most fascinating life filled with sex (he was the only man in a female dominated court), seduction, intrigue, espionage, theft, exile, treason, and possibly, execution.

Opis - Shoes have always captured the imagination, and communicated the priorities and ambitions of the wearer. In the reign of Henry VIII, exaggerated shapes and wide toes were footwear"s reflection of the aggressive social climate of court, while engravings of Queen Victoria show impossibly narrow slippers, worn in pursuit of nineteenth-century ideals of daintiness. Contemporary shoe styles continue to challenge our inherited notions of beauty and status. After a general introduction, illustrated chronological chapters retrace the history of footwear from the Middle Ages to today, featuring shoes and boots that once belonged to both anonymous and famous men and women, from battered old "chimney shoes? hidden away for good luck to the elegant styles of the Renaissance, from Elizabethan mules to the first stilettos.

St. Andrew's College Review Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The St. Andrew's College Review: Midsummer, 1911 Little over a year ago the Empire was plunged into grief by the death of a beloved and honored ruler. To-day, throughout the British realm, but more especially in historic London, elaborate preparations are being made for the coronation of the great Peacemaker's son - King George the Fifth. With a wonderful blending of quaint medićval custom and of more modern ceremony, a pageant of unwonted splendor is being planned with amazing accuracy of detail and kingly consideration by our indefatigable monarch and his able consort. With all the gorgeousness, all the pomp and grandeur that one year ago attended the royal obsequies, lacking only the sadness of that historic event, the crowning of our King and Queen will add its page to the history of the land and two more names be added to that long and wonderful list of those who have wielded the sceptre for good or ill. Already King George and Queen Mary have taken their place in the heart of Britain and her colonies, and it is safe to prophesy that their reign will be one of prosperity and happiness. The good-will and affection of the Empire is theirs. Long may they reign. During the present school year the reorganization of the College government has been completed, and St. Andrew's College is now conducted as a Trust under the authority of a special Act of the Ontario Legislature passed last session.

Fires of Faith YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The reign of Mary Tudor has been remembered as an era of sterile repression, when a reactionary monarch launched a doomed attempt to reimpose Catholicism on an unwilling nation. Above all, the burning alive of more than 280 men and women for their religious beliefs seared the rule of 'Bloody Mary' into the protestant imagination as an alien aberration in the onward and upward march of the English-speaking people. In this controversial reassessment, the renowned reformation historian Eamon Duffy argues that Mary's regime was neither inept nor backward looking. Led by the queen's cousin, Cardinal Reginald Pole, Mary's church dramatically reversed the religious revolution imposed under the child king Edward VI. Inspired by the values of the European Counter-Reformation, the cardinal and the queen reinstated the papacy and launched an effective propaganda campaign through pulpit and press. Even the most notorious aspect of the regime, the burnings, proved devastatingly effective. Only the death of the childless queen and her cardinal on the same day in November 1558 brought the protestant Elizabeth to the throne, thereby changing the course of English history.

Swift's Politics - 2826646727

Swift's Politics Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Modern scholarship has represented Jonathan Swift as both an Old Whig and a non-Jacobite Tory. Ian Higgins' contextual reassessment of Swift's political writing and recorded opinion considers the interpretative problems they present. It explores the consonance of Swift's political writing with militant Jacobite Tory writing on affairs of Church and State, and demonstrates Swift's dissimilarity from the Old Whig writers with whom modern criticism has misleadingly identified him. Swift's writings of the 1690s, during the last four years of Queen Anne's reign, and after the Hanoverian succession are shown to contain Jacobitical political implications when examined in their context in the 'paper wars' of the period. Higgins concentrates on the partisan meanings of the great satires A Tale of a Tub and Gulliver's Travels, and represents Swift (as he was read by his contemporaries) as a disaffected High Church Anglican extremist with Jacobite inclinations.

1711 Expedition to Quebec Bloomsbury Academic

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In 1711, the newly formed Great Britain launched its first attempt to conquer French North America. The largest military force ever assembled to fight on the continent was dispatched and combined with colonial American units in Boston before proceeding up the St Lawrence River for Quebec. An additional colonial force set out from Albany to march on Montreal - but neither Briton nor colonist reached their respective targets. Adam Lyons looks at the expedition as a product of the turbulent political environment at the end of Queen Anne's reign and as a symbol of a shift in politics and strategy. Its failure proved to be detrimental to the reputation of the expedition's naval commander, Rear-Admiral Sir Hovenden Walker, but Lyons shows how true blame should lie with his political master, Secretary of State Henry St John, who ensured the expedition's failure by maintaining absolute control and secrecy. The 1711 Expedition to Quebec demonstrates how the expedition helped to alter British policy by renewing an interest in 'blue water', or maritime, operations that would gain dominance for Britain in commerce and at sea. This strategy would later see huge success, ultimately resulting in the fall of Quebec to Wolfe and the eventual conquest of French North America in the Seven Years War.

The Strangest Family William Collins

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

An intensely moving account of George III's doomed attempt to create a happy, harmonious family, written with astonishing emotional force by a stunning new history writer. George III came to the throne in 1760 as a man with a mission. He was determined to break with the extraordinarily dysfunctional home lives of his Hanoverian predecessors. He was sure that as a faithful husband and a loving father, he would be not just a happier man but a better ruler as well. During the early part of his reign it seemed as if, against all the odds, his great family project was succeeding. His wife, Queen Charlotte, shared his sense of moral purpose, and together they raised their fifteen children in a climate of loving attention. But as the children grew older, and their wishes and desires developed away from those of their father, it became harder to maintain the illusion of domestic harmony. 'The Strangest Family' is an epic, sprawling family drama, filled with intensely realised characters who leap off the page as we are led deep inside the private lives of the Hanoverians. Written with astonishing emotional force by a stunning new voice in history writing, it is both a window on another world and a universal story that will resonate powerfully with modern readers.

The acclaimed and enthralling story of the dark side of Elizabethan rule, from Stephen Alford Elizabeth I's reign is known as a golden age, yet to much of Europe she was a 'Jezebel' and heretic who had to be destroyed. The Watchers is a thrilling portrayal of the secret state that sought to protect the Queen; a shadow world of spies, codebreakers, agent provocateurs and confidence-men who would stop at nothing to defend the realm. Reviews: "Forget Le Carre, Deighton and the rest - this is more enthralling than any modern spy fiction". (Daily Telegraph). "Absorbing and closely documented...Alford vividly evokes this murky world of codes, ciphers, invisible ink, intercepted letters, aliases, disguises, forgeries and instructions to burn after reading ...flowing narrative [and] crisp judments ...engrossing". (Guardian). "[Alford] has brought a dash of le Carre to the 16th century". (The Times (Book of the Week)). "A vivid and staggeringly well-researched portrait of the sinister side of Elizabethan England...This is a spectacular book. It sheds new light on plots that most historians have ceased to explore and brings less famous conspiracies to the attention of the general reading public". (Herald). "Fascinating...If you want to know the inside story of this struggle, the dark heart of calculation and the fight for survival, then this is the book to read. I know no better". (Spectator). About the author: Stephen Alford is the author of the acclaimed biography Burghley: William Cecil at the Court of Elizabeth I and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. He taught for fifteen years at Cambridge University, where he was a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of History and a Fellow of King's College. He is now Professor of Early Modern British History in the University of Leeds.
