Description
Louis XIV was the "Sun King," renowned for his political and cultural influence and for raising France to a new level of prominence in 17th-century Europe. In this history by the author of Marie Antoinette and The Six Wives of Henry VIII, Louis is revealed as equally remarkable in his influence upon—or perhaps susceptibility to—the fairer sex. Influenced by his mother to view himself as godlike, Louis consorted with a panoply of women: his wife Anne; his cousin Marie Mancini; such mistresses as Louise de la Vallière, Athénaïs de Montespan, and the puritanical Madame de Maintenon; and an array of courtesans. The women commanded varying degrees of power in both Louis XIV’s life and in France at large, compelling the king to find suitable situations for his ever-increasing number of illegitimate children. Antonia Fraser also includes a chronology, a family tree, a glossary of characters, and 32 pages of color illustrations.
