I got just the right boost from reading the amazing novel, Louis The well Beloved, by Jean Plaidy. This helped get my historical juices going. So soon enough, I got a whole slew of Historical Flavours to fill my quota!
Here are some of the ladies that captured Louis's, hmmm, heart:
Duchesse de Ventadour,
Marie Victoire, Comtesse de Toulouse
Infanta Mariana of Spain
Louise Julie de Mailly,
Pauline Felicite de Mailly,
Marianne de Mailly,
Duchesse de Charteroux,
Jeanne Antoinette Poisson: Madame de Pompadour
Some of you may have already read my post back at Plaidy's Royal Intrigue- run by Arleigh and I- But for those of you who haven't, and would like to read up on these fancy (and not so fancy..) ladies that filled Louis XV's life, please see here.
