That stretch of time saw many wars and intrigue, spanning the reigns of some of Europe's most memorable monarchs: Elizabeth I, James I, Charles I, Henry IV, Louis XIII, Luis XIV, and Philip of Spain. Focusing on the fashion of Spain, France, and England, valuable background information is added to give context beginning at the High Renaissance and ending in the Age of Reason and Elegance. The figures depicted range in class from peasants to princesses and in occupation from musicians to musketeers, with military figures shown in full uniform.
