Synopsis of Young Henry of Navarre by Heinrich Mann:

”One of the greatest modern historical novels reissued by Tusk/ Overlook Press; Young Henry of Navarre traces the life of Henry IV from the King’s idyllic childhood in the mountain villages of the Pyrenees to his ascendance to the throne of France. Heinrich Mann’s most acclaimed work is a spectacular epic that recounts the wars, political intrigue, rival religious sects, and backstage plots that marked the birth of the French republic.

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).”
