Summary
Through the interlocking stories of its four great princes, John Julius Norwich offers a short, vivid history of the Renaissance and the making of early modern Europe. Packed with gossipy stories and colourful asides (whether it is Henry VIII getting the Venetian ambassador to feel his thigh to see how strong he is or the fat queen who had a plum named after her), the sixteenth century, along with its heroes and villains, comes alive again on the page
