Publisher's Summary

No longer the well-beloved, Louis XV is becoming ever more unpopular - the huge expense of his court and decades of costly warfare having taken their toll. As the discontent grows, Louis seeks refuge in his extravagances and his mistress, the powerful Marquise de Pompadour.
Suspicions, plots and rivalry are rife as Louis’ daughters and lovers jostle for his attention and their own standing in Court. Ignoring the unrest in Paris, Louis continues to indulge in frivolities.
But how long will Paris stay silent when the death of the Marquise de Pompadour leads to yet another mistress influencing the King?
