About This Item

McMillan Co, NY, 1966. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Christina, became Queen of Sweden upon her father's death and reigned for 21 years until 1654 when she abruptly abdicated and left Sweden for Italy; sending word back of her conversion to Roman Catholicism. She wore men's shoes that were more comfortable and dressed comfortably and without care. She was outrageous in her behavior and yet spent the years until her death in 1689 in self exile with power and influence perhaps unmatched in her day. Rare biography of an important historical figure. There is a protective mylar cover. 1ST EDITION.
