Description
After the death of his prime minister Cardinal Mazarin in 1661, 22-year-old Louis XIV takes full control of France, in this historical novel from the author of Through a Glass Darkly. The young king believes himself entitled to everything he can get—including his brother's wife—and the love affair between Louis and Princess Henriette sets his court on a path toward inevitable scandal and conflict with the Vatican. And there are other problems lurking outside the chateau of Fontainebleau—a boy in an iron mask has been seen in the woods, and finance minister Nicolas Fouquet has proven to be more powerful than Louis ever thought—he could make a great ally, or become a dangerous foe.

"A baroque cornucopia spilling over with intrigue, passion, jealousy, ambition, and rich historical detail, Before Versailles offers a glittering glimpse of the crucial months that shaped Louis XIV into Europe's most powerful monarch."—Eleanor Herman

"This magnificently written and researched novel ... brings to vibrant life the early years and loves of the future Sun King."—Jean M. Auel
