The rags-to-riches story of Françoise d’Aubigné, wife of the Sun-King of France
Françoise d’Aubigné, born in a bleak provincial prison, her father a condemned murderer and traitor to the state, rose from the depths of poverty to life at the vortex of power at Versailles. Married at fifteen to a tragically disfigured and scandalously popular poet, in his salon Françoise encountered all the brilliant characters of the seventeenth century’s glitterati. After her husband’s death, she led the life of a merry widow in the colourful Marais quarter of Paris, before becoming governess to the King’s growing brood of royal bâtards.
This is the extraordinary story of one woman’s daring journey from beggar-girl, West Indian colonist and salonnière to royal mistress and thence, in secret, to the compromised position of Louis’ uncrowned Queen. Through the rags-to-riches tale of the marquise de Maintenon, Veronica Buckley reveals every layer of the vibrant and shocking world that was France in the age of Louis XIV.
