"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 ..."--

The royal succession; a novel by Maurice Druon( Book )

"This is the fourth volume of the series of historical novels called the Accursed Kings. Though each book is an entity unto itself, still there is a central theme running through them all--namely the curse that Jaques DeMolay hurled at the Iron King (Philip IV) and his descendants--while being burned at the stake in the year 1313. Within a year Philip IV was dead. Hardly had the Iron King died, when his son, Louis X, followed him to the grave. The population could not help but see in these two deaths, Kings struck down in their prime, one following so quickly on the other, the finger of fate. Louis X, the Hutin, had reigned eighteen months, six days and ten hours. During this short period of time, this pitiful monarch had destroyed the greater part of his father's achievement. His reign had seen the murder of his Queen and the hanging of his first Minister; famine had ravaged France; two provinces had rebelled; and an army had been engulfed in the Flanders' mud. The great nobles were infringing on the royal prerogatives once more; reaction was all-powerful; and the Treasury empty. Louis X had ascended the throne at a moment when the world lacked a pope; he died before a pontiff had been elected and Christendom trembled on the verge of schism. And now France was without a king. Thus is the scene set as this novel concerning the struggle for the crown opens. Many factions are openly and covertly attempting to seize power. There is plot and counter plot--rape, pillage and murder. At Lyons the eldest surviving brother of Louis X is vainly attempting to force the Conclave of Cardinals to elect a new Pope. Against this background of unrest, civil war and the threat of outside attack, it was no wonder that the people recalled the anathema pronounced two years before by the Grand Master of the Templars from the faggots of his pyre. This is heady, exciting historical fiction at its best."--Dust jacket

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
La chute des corps by Maurice Druon( Book )

84 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 297 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.'"--Page 4 of cover
