Product Description

Clovis, the fiery barbarian, witnessed a miraculous conversion on the field of battle thanks to the prayers and excellent example of his young wife, Clothilde, and became a Christian in 496, forever changing the history of France.

Queen Clothilde relates the wonderful story of her life from her point of view in this book for children. Despite the fact that it reads like a journal, all historical facts have been meticulously studied and validated by credible sources.

Clothilde, the daughter of King of Burgundy, is regarded as a saint by the Catholic Church. Her mother raised her as a Christian, and at the age of eighteen, she married Clovis, King of the Franks, who tradition has it fell in love with her beauty.

By promoting the Catholic faith, King Clovis and Queen Clothilde united the many peoples under Frankish power. The royal couple made Paris their capital, and they established churches and monasteries from Belgium to the Mediterranean. The people who would become the country of France would be the leaders of Christian civilization in Western Europe for centuries to come. Illustrated.

Blandine Malé and Hélène Fabe-Henriet hold advanced degrees from French universities in history, geography, classics, and literature. Both women spent many years teaching in prominent French secondary schools.
