Synopsis of Henry King of France by Heinrich Mann:

”In ‘Henry, King of France’, the sequel to ‘Young Henry of Navarre’, the compelling epic of Henry IV’s reign over France is followed to its tragic destiny. The novel recounts two decades of chaos and war that led to the triumphant founding of the French Republic and culminated in the King’s assassination in 1589.

Heinrich Mann (1871-1950), the older brother of Thomas Mann, was a well-known German novelist and social critic of authoritarian Germany under Wilhelm II. In addition to the two Henry novels, he is also the author of Man of Straw and Small Town Tyrant (the basis of the film The Blue Angel).”
