The Tigress of Forli, by Elizabeth Lev

Find in catalogI am learning about Renaissance Italy and discovered a great book: the Tigress of Forli. This is not a historical fiction, but a well written history of Catherine Riario, Sforza, Di’ Medici. What a fascinating character living in very interesting times! She was a brave woman who knew her own mind. She had armor built and fought along side her soldiers to defend her castle! Just my kind of gal. If you are a student of Italian history or interested in the life of women in the Renaissance era, I recommend this book.
