↞ $0.00 ໔ Love and Louis XIV: The Women in the Life of the Sun King For Free ⣛ Book By Antonia Fraser ⥆ Prolific royal biographer Fraser Marie Antoinette has assiduously researched her measured yet engrossing study, shedding welcome light on the galaxy of influential women who orbited the dazzling Sun King The most important woman in Louis XIV s life, in Fraser s telling, was probably the firsthis mother, Anne of Austria The voluptuous, pleasure loving but pious and dignified queen regent inculcated Louis with the notion that he was a godlike miracle who was nevertheless accountable to the deity for his sins As this narrowly focused history suggests, Louis was constantly trying to reconcile his gargantuan sexual appetite with his duty to his people and his God Louis gave up his first love, the bold and amusing Marie Mancini, to marry his graceless first cousin, the Spanish princess Maria Teresa A serious flirtation with his charming sister in law Henriette Anne, sister of England s Charles II, ended when Louis fell for Charles and Henriette s decoy, the timid virgin Louise de La Vallire In sexual thrall to the intelligent, magnetic Athnas, the Marquise de Montespan, the king intriguingly threw her over for Franoise Scarron, the puritanical governess to their bastards Lastly, Louis gave his heart to his spirited granddaughter in law Adlade, who died of measles

and unfolds as a sequence of cameos There is Queen Anne of Austria, Louis s steely mothr and regent, who carefully molded the infant King into an Apollo adored by the court and his wife, Marie Therese of Spain, who gave him no trouble except by dying Then comes a trio of mistresses Louise de La Valliere, who became a nun as recompense for her sins Athenais, voluptuous and fecund and Madame de Maintenon, the discreet and redoubtable confidante of his later years With vivid wit, Fraser demonstrates that within the edifice of the monarchy there were deep crannies of ordinary affection
