First Sentence
Despite John Knox's bitter denunciation, Mary Tudor and Mary Stuart were not "monster in nature," nor did their rule represent the sudden emergence of an unprecedented "monstrous regiment." Read the first page

HASH(0xb4e8bca8) out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this text June 30 2015
By E. Graham - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this text. It's not a popular history, nor light, by any means but very informative and good for anyone who is a student of the period. I used it to get a better grip of certain personalities during the Renaissance/Reformation period, as well as the environment in which they lived. Each location had its own particular prejudices, but learning about how these particular women dealt with their situation was very enlightening.
