Great Lives from History: the Renaissance & Early Modern Era, 1454-1600

Great Lives from History: The Renaissance & Early Modern Era, 1454-1600 is the third installment in the expanded Great Lives series. The editor has sought to provide coverage that is broad in areas of achievement as well as geography, including individuals from Africa, Asia, Europe, and North and South America. The set includes the standard figures - kings, queens, generals, artists, and scientists - but much more: Key figures who have previously received little attention, from the queen of Hausaland Amina Sarauniya Zazzua to composer Thomas Tallis, and even such notorious figures as Irish pirate Grace O'Malley and Hungarian nobelwoman Elizabeth Báthory.
