Description

History is not created in a vacuum, and no leader comes to power without influences from the past and an impact on the future. In this look at ten royals, beginning with Queen Hatshepsut of Egypt and ending with Catherine the Great, each leader's biography is linked with another based on influences, events, and geography. By uncovering these unique and often overlooked connections, history emerges as a chain of patterns and relationships, and readers will understand how these ten leaders shaped the course of human civilization.

Review quote

School Library JournalThis addition to the series provides succinct and captivating biographies of 10 sovereigns, primarily men from Western culture, from early times through the end of the 18th century. . . . [T]his book is refreshing in that multiple biographies and a historical context are provided in one volume. For those libraries that need to enhance their world history or biography collections, this is a solid choice that will likely appeal to reluctant readers.
