Famous Men of the 16th & 17th Century
by Robert G. Shearer
The 17th century was an age of religious wars and revolutions. The French had seven civil wars of religion from 1570-1590. The German Empire had a religious civil war from 1618-1648. The English had a civil war from 1642-1649.
It was also the century in which the English and French settlements were founding in North America at Jamestown, Plymouth, Boston, & Quebec.
But learning the wars will not convey to students what the times were like. Biographies will.
This volume includes 28 biographies from Queen Elizabeth I (who came to the throne in 1560) through King Louis XIV who died in 1715.
Written by historian, author, and homeschooling dad – Rob Shearer.
This volume is a worthy successor to the previous books in the Famous Men of. . . series.
