Rival Queens by Nancy Goldstone

When Elizabeth I and Philip II sat on their thrones it seemed the whole world was split between Catholics and Protestants. Most people are aware of the Spanish Inquisition, even if only through Monty Python. Lesser known is the internal struggle of the French. Goldstone takes it and manages to make it rather hilarious and relatable. Never have I laughed so much at footnotes.
