This book offers a full and comprehensive account of one of the most colourful and formative reigns in French history, that of Francis I (1515-47). First published to coincide with the 500th anniversary of Francis's birth in 1994, this book is a completely revised version of Knecht's earlier study of the king, Francis I, which was for many years the standard work on the subject. That edition has been superseded by this substantially larger work, in which much new written and illustrative material is included. No other English work on the subject is as up-to-date or as authoritative.
