Abstract:

The Court of François I is full of lust, intrigue, and bawdy bon tempsā different world from the quiet country life Diane de Poitiers led with her elderly husband. Now a widow, the elegant Diane is called back to Court, where the King?s obvious interest marks her as an enemy to the King?s favourite, Anne d?Heilly.

Neglected by his father and disliked by his brothers, Prince Henri expects little from his life. But as his friendship with Diane deepens into infatuation and then a romance that scandalizes the Court, the Prince begins to discover hope for a future with Diane. But fate and his father have other plans for Henriīncluding a political marriage with Catherine de Medici. Despite daunting obstacles, Henri?s devotion to Diane never wanes; their passion becomes one of the most legendary romances in the history of France.
