This is a good book in getting to know the De Medici family and how it influenced France and the rest of the world at that time.

Catherine de Medici was neither a great queen nor a good woman. The best thing you can say about her is that she loved her children (maybe too much) who were, to be sure, a worthless bunch (Queen Margot excepting). Leonie Frieda tries her best to make Queen Catherine look good, without much success.
