Book - 2006
Rate this:
A biography of Cardinal Richelieu of France--considered by many to be the founder of modern Europe--this book does not seek to make Richelieu a figure either of irrational worship or irrational hate. Belloc impartially examines Richelieu's life and career, delves into his Catholic and family roots, and pinpoints their relevance to the development of his character, his thought, and his political and religious policy.
