They were brilliant, violent, and dissolute, and it seems appropriate that they reigned over France’s Hundred Years War with England. They witnessed the disaster at Crécy and the triumph of the Maid of Orleans. But all seven of the Valois kings were complex and fascinating men and their story is presented here in an able translation of the work of a prize-winning popular French historian.
