            George IV (Penguin Monarchs): King in Waiting
              

            George IV (Penguin Monarchs): King in Waiting (EPUB ebook)

            By Tillyard, Stella

            George IV spent most of his life waiting to become king: as a pleasure-loving and rebellious Prince of Wales during the sixty-year reign of his father, George III, and for ten years as Prince Regent, when his father went mad. 'The days are very long when you have nothing to do' h...e once wrote plaintively, but he did his best to fill them with pleasure - women, art, food, wine, fashion, architecture. He presided over the creation of the Regency style, which came to epitomise the era, and he was, with Charles I, the most artistically literate of all our kings. Yet despite his life of luxury and indulgence, George died alone and unmourned. Stella Tillyard has not written a judgemental book, but a very human and enjoyable one, about this most colourful of all British kings.

            King of the World: The Life of Louis XIV
              

            King of the World: The Life of Louis XIV (EPUB ebook)

            By Mansel, Philip

            Louis XIV, King of France and Navarre, dominated his age. In the second half of the seventeenth century, he extended France's frontiers into the Netherlands and Germany, and established colonies in America, Africa and India. Louisiana, which once occupied a third of the territory... of the present-day United States, is named after him. Louis was also one of the greatest patrons of European history - Moliere, Racine, Lully, Le Brun, le Notre all worked for him. The stupendous palace he built at Versailles, and its satellites at Marly and Trianon, became the envy of monarchs all over Europe, frequently imitated but never surpassed. In all his palaces, Louis encouraged dancing, hunting, music and gambling. He loved conversation, especially with women: the power of women in Louis's life and reign is a particular theme of this book.Louis was obsessed by the details of government, and travelled extensively around his kingdom, but often his choices for ministers and generals proved disastrous. After the death of his very able minister Colbert, the extraordinary cost of building palaces and waging continuous wars devastated French finances and helped set France on the path to revolution. In 1685, his decision to revoke toleration for Protestants damaged his country, and alienated Protestant Europe and at the end of his life, his forces were persistently defeated by the Duke of Marlborough and Prince Eugene of Savoy. Nevertheless, by his death, he had helped make his grandson king of Spain, where his descendants still reign, and France had taken essentially the shape it has today.Philip Mansel's King of the World is much the most comprehensive and up-to-date biography of this hypnotic, flawed figure in English. It draws on all the latest research in France, Britain and America and pays special attention to the culture of the court, on which Mansel is an acknowledged expert. It is a convincing and compelling portrait of a man who, three hundred years after his death, still epito

            King and Emperor: A New Life of Charlemagne
              

            King and Emperor: A New Life of Charlemagne (EPUB ebook)

            By Nelson, Janet L.

            'A remarkable book: the dramatic story of a truly extraordinary man ... brilliant' Helen Castor, author of She-Wolves A major new biography of one of the most extraordinary of all rulers, and the father of present-day Europe Charles, king of the Franks, is one of the most remarka...ble figures ever to rule a European super-state. That is why he is so often called by the French 'Charlemagne', and by the Germans 'Karl der Grosse'. His strength of character was felt to be remarkable from early in his long reign. Warfare and accident, vermin and weather have destroyed much of the evidence for his rule in the twelve centuries since his death, but a remarkable amount still survives.Janet L. Nelson's wonderful new book brings together everything we know about Charlemagne and sifts through the evidence to come as close as we can to understanding the man and his motives. Nelson has an extraordinary knowledge of the sources and much of the book is a sort of detective story, prying into and interpreting fascinating material and often obdurate scraps, from prayerbooks to skeletons, gossip to artwork.Above all, Charles's legacy lies in his deeds and their continuing resonance, as he shaped duchies and counties, rebuilt and founded towns and monasteries, and consciously set himself up not just as King of the Franks, but as the new 'Emperor governing the Roman Empire'. His successors - in some ways to the present day - have struggled to interpret, misinterpret, copy or subvert Charlemagne's legacy. Nelson gets us as close as we can ever hope to come to the real figure, as understood in his own time.

            King Richard IIIRichard III has gone down in history as one of the most hated and vilified British monarchs of all time. His two-year-long reign as king of England ended in 1485 when he was defeated at the Battle of Bosworth by Henry Tudor, making him the last English king to die... on the battlefield. Despite the brevity of his reign, Richard III managed to earn an enduring-albeit unflattering-reputation which lives on to this day. William Shakespeare painted him as a ruthless, hunch-backed usurper, who killed not only his brother but also his two young nephews to get his hands on the crown. Amazingly, Shakespeare's claims are not completely unfounded. Inside you will read about... Richard of York and the Wars of the Roses Early Life as a Knight Lord of the North Richard's Rise to Power Buckingham's Rebellion Death at the Battle of Bosworth And much more! This book attempts to separate fact from fiction to present the true life story of one of Britain's most controversial kings: Richard III.

            King Henry VIIHenry VII was not destined to be the well-known (or perhaps better described as infamous) king that his son was after him, but his place in history remains important. With his victory over Richard III in 1485, Henry brought England out of the Middle Ages and ushered... it into the modern era. His reign ended decades of bloody civil wars and provided the wealth and stability necessary for commerce and art to thrive in England. When Henry's son, Henry VIII, ascended the throne in 1509, it marked England's first uncontested transfer of power in almost 90 years. This fact alone is a testament to Henry's achievements. Inside you will read about... Early Life and Exile The Battle for the Throne The Tudor Dynasty Begins England and Spain Join Forces The Work of Henry VII Late Life and Death And much more! In this book, we will discover the story of how Henry VII became the last English king to win his crown on the battlefield and by doing so established the Tudor dynasty which would remain in power for over 100 years.

            Clovis n'a que quinze ans lorsqu'il accede au trone, a la suite de son pere Childeric, en 481. Son ascension au sommet des responsabilites de la couronne est alors foudroyante et il ne manque pas d'ennemis. Mais il parvient a s'imposer. Vainqueur en 486 du dernier representant de... l'autorite romaine en Gaule (Syagrius), Clovis fait de Soissons la capitale des Francs. Fin stratege, Clovis saisit l'interet de s'associer aux eveques pour obtenir la conversion au catholicisme de ses opposants et ainsi conforter le pouvoir de l'Eglise sur les populations gallo-romaines. Sa victoire contre les Alamans puis les Wisigoths le propulse a la tete d'un veritable empire. Souvent reduit a quelques cliches de livres d'histoire (dont le celebre episode du vase de Soissons), Clovis reste un stratege militaire de premier plan encore peu connu faute d'archives, double d'un excellent diplomate. Sa tentative legendaire d'unifier son royaume posera les bases de la France. Cet ouvrage delaisse toutefois la legende pour revenir a ce que les historiens nous apprennent aujourd'hui de l'homme.
