Description More Information
 
Don John of Austria accomplished an amazing array of victories for Christendom in his short life. He was an excellent strategist and leader of men, commanding forces in the Spanish Moorish rebellion, the Battle of Lepanto, and in the war in the Netherlands.

Margaret Yeo tells his adventurous life story, filled with triumph and tragedy, as a poignant end to the Medieval period. Don John, obedient to his King and half-brother Philip II to the end, finally succumbed to the intrigues of court and natural illness, dying at the age of thirty-one. In the four-hundred years since his death, his story never dulls, yet continues to captivate and inspire new generations.
