Great Lives from History: the Seventeenth Century

Great Lives from History is a multivolume series detailing the biographies of important people throughout history, worldwide. Major world leaders appear here - emperors, conquerors, kings, and queens - as do giants of religious faith who were central to the century, such as popes and theologians who left their imprint on political as well as spiritual institutions. The set also includes figures who have received little or no attention in the past - from Queen Njinga of Angola to the Ottoman scholar Kâtib Çelebî. The individuals covered are identified with one or more of the following areas: Africa, the American Colonies, Austria, Belgium, Bohemia, Canada, China, Denmark, England, France, Germany, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Native America, the Netherlands, the Ottoman Empire, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Scotland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Ukraine.
