Selected letters - Madame de Maintenon
Secret wife of Louis XIV, educator of the House of Saint-Cyr and "Mother of the Church of France", Mme de Maintenon (1635-1719) was at the same time an exceptional and impressive letter-writer of the Grand Siècle.
His active correspondence includes some 4,500 letters, of which 250 are presented here. This choice was made according to two criteria: it should allow readers to follow the life course of the awning, while the originality of the information and the liveliness and spiciness of its style are the other criteria.
An excellent opportunity to get to know this character who never ceases to intrigue three centuries after his death.
