Publishers Description: A remarkable achievement. Christopher Hill, NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOK. When the eighteen-year-old Henry, Princess of Wales, died in November 1612, the hopes of a new generation had been dashed. For the Prince, eldest son of James I, and brother of the future Charles I, epitomized the yearning of those who wished England to lead Protestant Europe in a great crusade against the might of Catholic Spain. He simultaneously embodied the aspirations of a new era in the arts, creating a court which would have rivalled those of the Medici grand dukes in Florence. This is the first major study of Henry IX, using original documents and sources, to have been written since 1760. It is the story of a great renaissance tragically cut short. With a mixture of exact scholarship and lively sympathy, Sir Roy gives us a whole portrait. A. S. Byatt, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
