Description:
New book, 339 pages. She was beautiful, notorious - and the most powerful woman in all France. Born Jeanne-Antoinette Poisson, Madam de Pompadour was mistress of Kink Louis XV during the turbulent decades of the eighteenth century leading up to the French Revolution. From childhood her ambition was to be the kings official mistress, and aided by her great beauty, intelligence, and ambitious family, she succeeded. From the first, her lack of aristocratic blood caused a scandal, but she quickly became the kings sole confidante and dispenser of political appointments. Her enemies were many, but her friends included such luminaries as Voltaire, Rousseau and Diderot. In time, she became effectively, de facto prime minister of France.
