Excerpt from Marysienka, Marie De La Grange D'arquien, Queen of Poland, and Wife of Sobieski, 1641-1716

Who was Marysienka?

A Frenchwoman, who became Queen of Poland, where this name was bestowed upon her.

The fact has but little interest for you, reader? Nor for me either! I would reply, if this peculiarity (not an ordinary one, by any means) were the only one her story offers. But the question of the manner in which the daughter of a mere captain in Monsieurs Guard, needy and of somewhat shady reputation to boot, contrived to succeed an Austrian archduchess on one of the fairest thrones of Europe, must present some aspects worth investigation.

And there are better things yet, to be discovered in this scrap of history. Better even than the curious, complicated, and exceedingly obscure episode of the numerous French candidatures those of Anguien, Conde, Longueville to the Polish throne, all of which, we see, are connected with this womans strange career, using, or being used by her for the great Conde was mixed up in the business, and Mazarin, and De Lionne, and the Grand Roi himself.

Something better yet, I say! It was not the mere facts to which I have just referred, which tempted me, some time since, to discuss this free-lance of royalty in a series of papers, published in a French Review Le Correspondant, 1884-1886).
