The Royal Huguenot

Double click on above image to view full picture

Henri IV was a favorite among French kings—for good reason.  Born a Huguenot in southwestern France, he was centuries ahead of his time in his ideas about religious tolerance.  Like his friend the philosopher Michel de Montaigne, he fought for Protestants and Catholics to live peacefully together and succeeded in ending decades-long civil wars.  However his lust and driving sexuality often threatened to upset his high ideals.  The Royal Huguenot  takes place during the struggle for power among the Bourbon, Guise, and Valois families in 16th century France and tells the often lurid and surprising story of the five most prominent women in his life.
