Karl I: The Emperor of Peace
Ages 9 and up
"Emperor Karl offered peace. He was the only honest man to appear in the course of the war. No one listened to him." –Anatole France
Beatified by Pope John Paul II in 2004, Emperor Karl I of Austria is known as the Emperor of Peace because he, along with Pope Benedict XV, tried in vain to make peace during the First World War.
This beautiful and colorful comic-style book presents the life of this great and inspiring leader who followed the will of God in all things, always seeking the good of his neighbor, especially amid the tumult of war. May he be an example for us all, as he was for Saint John Paul II.
