Ars 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 f the women is pretty evenly distributed but Fraser spends the most time with Maintenon makes sense since they were together the longest 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 ther all the time so you know why not and also nce Maintenon was painted wearing royal ermine And I have to point ut this book is all things considered kind f dull If you re a history nerd 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 f boring politics Yes Louis was involved in lots Ten Thousand Goddam Cattle: A History of the American Cowboy in Song, Story and Verse of wars but let s try and keep the book s title in mind Fraser As Louis himselfnce said Whores Set Theory, Logic and Their Limitations over wars bro Whoresver wars citation needed I don t know that I am totally unbiased in my review f this book as just from a glance it held many f my favorite things history courtly drama France clever women in high places gorgeous color photo sections and Antonia Fraser I read her Marie Antoinette The Journey at the beginning f 2016 and was extremely impressed and I found my reaction to be the same here I was thoroughly entertained throughout In my post Versailles TV series hangover I wanted to read this to get a sense f the historical reality behind the fiction sadly though this is not Fraser at her best The narrative feels unfocused in comparison with her Mary ueen f Scots and The Gunpowder Plot and that seems to be because she changed the remit f the book mid and that seems to be because she changed the remit أساطير شعبية من قلب جزيرة العرب: الجزء الرابع of the book mid Sheriginally planned to write about Louis mistresses then widened it to also cover his relationships with Stricken (Asphalt Cowboys, other women his mother Annef Austria his daughters the wife The Sporty Game of his grandson The result is a book which Busty young princess Marie Ad la de set tongues and codpieces wagging today as she made her first appearance in court looking dressed to kill in a daring figure hugging gown The sau Did you know Louis the XIV used be given an eneman a "Louis the XIV used to be given an enema American Yakuza II on a basis Or that no matterne s suffering they we re bled from their arms Inventions That Changed the World: Working Wonders or their legs Now that is some horror stuff right there I cannly appreciate the age I m living in with all its advances in medicineThis book is than just a look at the women in the Sun King s life It contains references to his military expeditions and the life uality Love Onboard: Cupid's Caribbean Cruise of the common folk I find Louis a very self centered man he had been raised to be as such and I like him less than before reading this book I think Antonia Fraser wanted to paint him.
