I make stuff up for fun and (sometimes) profit. So it was quite a different world I dove into when my partner in crime Aurora von Goeth said we should write a biography on Louis XIV. Mucho scribbling immediately began, and now, many many months later, and with one hell of a learning curve behind us, we are proud to announce Pen & Sword books will be publishing our book baby.
What should you expect? It’s all about Louis XIV from birth to death, the people around him, the wars and fashion and mistresses and all the good (and not so good) things. Imagine us sitting next to you in a fancy elegant salon, courtiers swirling around, eating and dancing and having a good time, and us whispering behind our fans to gossip about Louis – but all of it is true. Yep, like getting a sneak peak into his everyday life and times. With pictures!
If you are new to the Sun King, it will most definitely give you a good introduction. If you’ve already read bits and pieces on Louis Le Grand then we’re pretty sure there will still be some tidbits to inform and surprise. Pre-ordering will be available towards the end of the year, with a publication date for Spring 2018 (just in time for Season 3 of Versailles 🙂 ). We will keep you all informed of our journey and hope you are excited as us to share Louis XIV to the world!
