9780719089985: Power and reputation at the court of Louis XIII: The career of Charles D'Albert, duc de Luynes (1578-1621) (Studies in Early Modern European History MUP)

This book seeks to rehabilitate the reputation of Charles d'Albert, duc de Luynes, the controversial favourite of Louis XIII often maligned by historians. Kettering argues that the traditional historical interpretation of Luynes is significantly influenced by the testimony of Richelieu, who subjected Luynes to a devastating character assassination in his memoirs.

Richelieu's malice and the bias in histories based upon his memoirs justify another look at Luynes' career. This book sifts through the historical evidence to offer a new perspective on Luynes, arguing that his contributions to the early years of Louis XIII's government have been insufficiently appreciated, and in the process throws light upon a dark, unpleasant corner of Richelieu's personality often ignored by historians.

As well as advanced students and historians of early modern France, this book should interest those specialising in the history of the European courts, power politics, patronage and printed pamphlet literature.

About the Author:


Sharon Kettering is Professor of History Emerita at Montgomery College in Maryland

Review:

“Through the study of one royal favorite, Dr. Kettering illuminates virtually every aspect of Early Seventeenth Century History. Learned, elegant, and eminently readable, Kettering brings a falconer and his king to life.” -- Orest Ranum, Professor Emeritus of French History, Johns Hopkins University

"Kettering's book is history at its best. It is vividly written, clear, informative and revealing, thorough and insightful scholarship, an excellent revisionist contribution to a more balanced understanding of Luynes, Louis XIII's reign, and court life." -Camille Weiss, Suffolk University

“The duc de Luynes, Louis XIII’s favorite, never got a fair press until now, Kettering offers a balanced, fascinating, and insightful portrait of Luynes’s life and role at court.”- Camille Weiss, Suffolk University
