Athenais: The Life of Louis XIV's Mistress, the Real Queen of France - Lisa Hilton (Used)
As lovely and charming as she was shrewd and calculating, Athenais de Montespan became the most powerful noblewoman of her day by brilliantly manipulating her forbidden role as mistress of King Louis XIV. With a lively narrative style that reads like fiction, Hilton reveals the woman behind the most dazzling days of the Sun King's reign.
This is a used book in good condition, with light wear to the cover and spine.
