Christopher de Bellaigue: A Life That Changed History

In over 600 years of Ottoman rule, the longest-reigning sultan was Suleiman the Magnificent. The Lion House by Christopher de Bellaigue narrates the epic tale of Suleiman’s rise to become the most powerful man of the 16th century. Fans of Hilary Mantel will thrill to Bellaigue’s account of political intrigues and intimacies. Suleiman’s empire stretches from Baghdad to Vienna, but the choices are brutal and the stakes are life and death.
