Review: Antonia Fraser explores the rich dynamic that existed between Louis XIV and the many fascinating women who ornamented his personal life. This includes not only Louis's mistresses, principally Louise de La Valliere and Athenais de Montespan as well as the puritanical Madame de Maintenon, but also the wider story of his relationships with women in general: his mother Anne of Austria, his two sisters-in-law who were Duchesses d'Orleans in succession, Henriette-Anne and Liselotte, his wayward illegitimate daughters, and lastly Adelaide, the beloved child-wife of his grandson.
