Riassunto: This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

She possessed a strong mind, a persuasive eloquence, and an invention so ready that she never wanted an expedient: this to be sure was more easy for her than for others; because, to effect her purposes, she never considered any means improper or unjust. In furtherance of her artful plans, she availed herself of the licentiousness of the court, and by her encouragement raised it to a pitch of unparalleled dissoluteness and infamy. Her principal weakness was the habit of frequently consulting astrologers; but in the exercise of her cruelty and perfidy: she became so much detested by both Catholies and Protestants that her foibles were thrown in the shade. Being entirely taken up with the weightier matters of pubhc affairs, she paid little or no attention to those subjects which generally occupy the minds of ladies of rank, and appears to have cared but little for the adulations which are invariably offered to a female sovereign.-fThe feelings of vanity were smothered in her breast by the cumulations of policy, and the spurrings of ambition: indeed this latter impulse was too strong to allow maternal affection to have its proper sway; for she encouraged her children in habits of licentiousness, in order to make them subservient to her purposes, and to prevent the...
