Popular & Praiseworthy

book cover image Four Princes

John Julius Norwich has authored scores of books damned by the faint praise of being “popular” histories. This is unjust, says the Washington Times.

According to the Times: "Norwich is a master of bringing his characters to life as part of the larger canvass of the great events they brought into being."

In Four Princes, Norwich shows how the people of Europe struggled to regain control over their destinies after the fall of Rome. They hoped, says Norwich, to find stability despite the surge in population, technology, trade and even faith. But then came Henry VIII, Francis I, Charles V and Suleiman the Magnificent.
