“The life of Anne of Brittany is traced in detail against a vivid background of court life during the Renaissance. . . . Useful to schools for its portrayal of the times, this has enough romance to appeal to girls.”
added by SylviaE | editALA Booklist
 
“On her father’s death in 1488, Anne of Brittany, at twelve, became ruler of a fiercely independent land beset by hostile neighbors. Through sieges, wars, political upheaval, and personal tragedy, the beloved little duchess, only woman to marry two French kings, triumphed. Vivid description of a glorious era.”

Book description
Anne of Brittany was only 12 when, in 1488, she became its Duchess, but already she was among the best-educated women of her era and she was determined to preserve the duchy’s independence. At 15 she averted takeover by France when she married its king, Charles VIII, and after he died she married his successor, Louis XII, becoming the only person ever twice crowned Queen of France. Ages 12 up.
