In a richly dramatic account, Leonie Frieda, author of Catherine de Medici: Renaissance Queen of France, takes on eight of the richest and most powerful women in Renaissance Italy and explores their contributions to politics, war and bloodlines, whether ruling themselves or exerting power from behind the throne. Beginning with the 'she-wolf of the Romagna', Caterina Sforza, the women are Lucrezia Tornabuoni, Clarice Orsini, Beatrice d'Este, Isabella d'Este, Giulia Farnese, Isabella d'Aragone and Lucrezia Borgia. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
