9780801955259: The royal whore, Barbara Villiers, Countess of Castlemaine

Allen Andrews, an Englishman himself, tells the story of Charles II a, and his maitresse en titre Barbara Villiers, who was the pacesetter for the court where King Charles sampled the ladies of his entourage as freely as he sampled his wines. But Barbara was more than a fair match for the monarch who created six dukedoms and one earldom for his illegitimate sons and saw to it that four of his daughters became countesses, for she wound up a long and active life with seven illegitimate children with a title for each one, political power and an income ( in those days ) to stagger the imagination.
