Love and Louis XIV The Women in the Life of the Sun KingIn my post Versailles TV series hangover I wanted to read this to get a sense of the historical reality behind the fiction sadly though this is not Fraser AT HER BEST THE NARRATIVE FEELS her best The narrative feels in comparison with her Mary ueen of "Scots and The Gunpowder Plot and that seems to be because she changed the remit of the book " and The Gunpowder Plot and that seems to be because she changed the remit of the book way She originally planned to write about Louis mistresses then widened it to also cover his Lady Antonia Fraser is an accomplished historian her Tudor books have enthralled me for years I chose her to introduce me to the French court sadly a disappointment This book is focused on King Louis XIV and the women he oved in his Aquagenesis life It begins well with a focus on Louis XIV s mother and regent Anne of Austria Anne was a pious and effective ruler and sheeft her son with a profound belief in the Catholic Church Partly through her influence Louis abandoned his Dark Intrusions love affair with Marie Mancini and married the Spanish In Louis XIV and the women in hisife I had expected this book to be interesting and entertaining but I found it chaotic and at times boring The subject matter is simply too broad Fraser doesn t only ook at relationships between Louis and his wife and mistresses but also his mother daughters and in aws It would have been better to focus on only a few women and really explore those relationships thoroughlyThis is the second book by Antonia Fraser that I ve read and both were rather disappointing I have no intention to read a third Busty young princess Marie Ad Decade of Despair la de set tongues and codpieces wagging today as she made her first appearance in courtooking dressed to kill in a daring figure hugging gown The saucy Savoyarde 34 20 34 after corset was presented to future hubby the Dauphin but onlookers said her Alpine attributes also had the King giving her the royal once over Official courtiers were unavailable for comment but sources close to Versailles told us She may only be 11 but that s hardly What Was Lost likely to stop Louis Frankly if we didn t keep a steady supply of hos round here I honestly worry he d start humping the furniture House of Bourbon said another House of Whore bonike This book is essentially a Louis uatorzian tabloidThe problem I had with it was that it felt a bit too Go-Go-Go! light to be valuable history but at the same time not uite salacious enough to be enjoyed as just good gossip Antonia Fraser s approach is to tell the story of Louis XIV s reign through the women that were close to him from his mother Anne of Austria through his wifes and mistresses down to his beloved granddaughter inaw Adelaide but although it does contain uite a few fascinating anecdotes overall I felt I didn t finish the book much enlightened than before I startedIt does drive home to you uite how much Louis for want of a better word slutted it up at court The Very Fact That There fact that there a semi official position for his ma tresse en titre complete with suite of royal apartments kind of amazes me what on earth did the ueen think of it One of many fundamental uestions that this book doesn t really address They all ived in each other s po. The book centres around the Sun King and his relationship with numerous and fascinating women Naturally dividing into five parts it will concentrate on the King's mother Anne of Austria to whom he was devoted; his first important mistress Louise de a Valliere who bore. Ckets so nothing can have been a secret yet THE FICTION HAD TO BE MAINTAINED THE UEEN ON fiction had to be maintained The ueen on occasion actually walked right past the room where Louise La Valli re was going into abour with Louis s ove child Are you all right the ueen asked seeing this girl clearly in some pain Louise panicking called back Colic Madame an attack of colic My favourite mistress was this girl clearly in some pain Louise panicking called back Colic Madame an attack of colic My favourite mistress was oise Ath na s aka Madame de Montespan the only one who seems to be enjoying herself she had a famously sparkling ine in conversation and also Fraser seems weirdly shocked by this Offenders and Detainees liked sex a wholeot She s described as having qasas-ul-quran long blonde hair a pouting mouth and eyes that were huge blue and very slightly exophthalmic all of which makes me think casting directors should be calling up Amanda SeyfriedAth na A detailedook at the reign of Louis XIV and the various women in his ife The ist begins with his mother Anne of Austria who acted as regent when Louis assumed the throne at age four and then ends with his Dead-End Road Mysteries last mistress Madame de Maintenon In between we get details of his firstove a couple other maitresses en titres his wife daughters and in Hear the Wolves laws My favorite of the bunch was Mary Beatrice d Este who was the wife of the exiled King James II When the king had toeave his country he took his wife and daughter to the French court where they Valors Measure lived under Louis s protection for several years Mary Beatrice apparently was very intelligent in addition to being beautiful and she and Louis were very close Fraser doesn t think they ever slept together I vote doubtful but their relationship was still very interestingInformation about each of the women is pretty evenly distributed but Fraser spends the most time with Maintenon makes sense since they were together theongest Fraser thinks they actually got married in secret after Louis s wife died but I m still not convinced Fraser s evidence is basically they were around each other all the time so you know why not and also once Maintenon was painted wearing royal ermine And I have to point out this book is all things considered kind of dull If you re a history nerd BFI Film Classics like me this won t bother you but still For every interesting story Fraser gives us dirty details people That s what we want there are pages of boring politics Yes Louis was involved inots of wars but Tni Tata Dunia Baru Sistem Pertahanan let s try and keep the book s title in mind Fraser As Louis himself once said Whores over wars bro Whores over wars citation needed As someone whooves his daughters and can t bear the thought of being away from them for very ong it blows my mind how for hundreds of years the royalty of Europe sent their girls off to marry crowned douche bags in foreign countries fully knowing that they would almost certainly never see them again They were ostensibly doing this to ensure peace with marriage alliances but IT ALMOST NEVER WORKED In fact as Love and Louis XIV shows these marriages were at east as ikely to bring war as they were to bring peace because every time country A would send a princess to country B they would essentially be giving country B a claim to the throne of Him several illegitimate children; Athenais Maruise de Montespan who acted as unofficial ueen of Versailles until her involvement in the affair of poisons and of course Marie Therese his wife; and Madame de Maintenon governess to the illegitimate royal children The fift. ,
