Queen Margot by Alexandre Dumas

Set against the backdrop of the French Wars of Religion, this historical novel unfolds in a tumultuous 16th-century France, where Catholics and Huguenots are locked in a deadly struggle for power. At the heart of the story is the beautiful Marguerite de Valois, known as Margot, sister to the Catholic King Charles IX. Her politically motivated marriage to the Protestant Henri of Navarre is meant to reconcile warring factions but instead leads to greater intrigue and conflict. Amidst a treacherous court, Margot navigates a web of political machinations, passionate romances, and the infamous St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre, as she and her new husband fight for survival and a place in a divided country.
