Description

Alexandre Dumas brings an extraordinary period of history to life in this exciting period romance. It is the twilight of the reign of King Charles IX, and France is dominated by religious wars between Catholics and Protestants. King Charles' sister, Marguerite, daughter of staunch Catholics Henry II and Catherine de Medici, is set to marry the Protestant Henry de Navarre. Their marriage sets off a series of conspiracies between the Catholics and the Protestants in a dangerous and breathtaking quest for power. From the mysterious murder of Henry de Navarre's mother, cleverly plotted by the evil Catherine de Medici, to the notorious Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre that killed thousands of Protestants lured to Paris by the wedding, Queen Margot is full of suspense, intrigue, betrayals, and daring escapes. At the center of it all are the good-hearted Marguerite and Henry, perfect political allies with fascinating love lives.
