The Black Tulip is a historical novel written by Alexandre Dumas, père. The story begins with a historical event — the 1672 lynching of the Dutch Grand Pensionary (roughly equivalent to a modern Prime Minister) Johan de Witt and his brother Cornelis, by a wild mob of their own countrymen — considered by many as one of the most painful episodes in Dutch history, described by Dumas with a dramatic intensity.

Black Tulip is good read it
Really enjoyed this. Dumas can really entertain. A bit like the Count of Monte Cristo bit with more tulips and shorter.
