John Barclay: Argenis
This popular Renaissance Latin novel is an historical allegory which tells the story of the religious conflict in France under Henry III of France and Henry IV of France, and also touches on more contemporary English events...The tendency is royalist, anti-aristocratic; it is told from the angle of a king who reduces the landed aristocrats' power in the interest of the "country", the interest of which is identified with that of the king. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argenis

The text from the Internet Archive:
John Barclay his Argenis (1628) --- Trans. by Le Grys, Robert, Sir, d. 1635 and May, Thomas, 1595-1650.
