    schema:reviewBody ""The reign of Gaston III, Count of Foix and self-proclaimed sovereign Lord of Bearn, stands out as one of the rare success stories of the 'calamitous' fourteenth century. By playing a skilful game of shifting allegiances and timely defiance, he avoided being drawn into the conflicts between his more powerful neighbours - France and English Aquitaine, Aragon and Castile - thus sparing his domains the devastations of warfare. Best known as a patron of the arts, and the author of a celebrated Book of the Hunt, Febus - as he styled himself - also prefigures the eighteenth-century 'enlightened despots' with his effort to centralize government, protect natural resources and promote enterprise. But a sequence of mysterious tragedies - the abrupt dismissal of his wife, the slaying of his only legitimate son - reveal the dark side of the brilliant and enigmatic 'Sun Prince of the Pyrenees'."--BOOK JACKET." ;
