"The Iron King--Philip the Fair--is as cold and silent, as handsome and unblinking as a statue. He governs his realm with an iron hand, but he cannot rule his own family: his sons are weak and their wives adulterous; while his red-blooded daughter Isabella is unhappily married to an English king who prefers the company of men. A web of scandal, murder and intrigue is weaving itself around the Iron King; but his downfall will come from an unexpected quarter. Bent on the persecution of the rich and powerful Knights Templar, Philip sentences Grand Master Jacques de Molay to be burned at the stake, thus drawing down upon himself a curse that will destroy his entire dynasty ..."--

82 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En La caída de los cuerpos, Maurice Druon continúa el durísimo ajuste de cuentas a la sociedad francesa de la Tercera República que iniciara con la publicación de Las grandes familias, novela con la que ganó el premio Goncourt de 1948. En esta segunda entrega de la trilogía homónima asistimos a la debacle de la vieja guardia de los clanes Schoudler y La Monnerie. Si el hundimiento del banquero Noël Schoudler retrata el fin de las fortunas amasadas durante el siglo XIX y la codicia de los especuladores que sucumbirán en la crisis financiera mundial de 1929; Urbain de La Monnerie, ciego y octogenario habitante del castillo de Mauglaives, encarna la decadencia de una vieja aristocracia que está a punto de desaparecer. En cambio, nada parece detener el ascenso del arribista Simon Lachaume, un político frío y cerebral, hecho a sí mismo, que no reconoce otros antepasados que 'la universidad, las antecámaras de los ministerios, las salas de redacción y los gabinetes de gobierno.'"--P. [4] of cover

The seventh and final volume of The Accursed Kings series by Maurice Druon, The King Without a Kingdom, is available for the first time in English. The reign of the Capetian kings has ended and John II, 'The Good', first of the Valois dynasty, has taken the throne. But through the eyes of his Cardinal, Perigord, we see that a monarch, as vain and cruel as he is incompetent, now sits on one of the most powerful thrones in Europe. And so, under his leadership does The Hundred Years War commence, one of the most prolonged and bloody conflicts in history, as England and France tear each other apart. Warring factions plunder the land, famine threatens its people and the Black Death spreads far and wide, as France bleeds around the new king
