These women held sway in the salons, in the councils of state, in the ballrooms, in the bedrooms they enchanted (or intimidated) the most powerful of men and presided over an extraordinary cultural flowering of unprecedented luxury and sophistication. It is this captivating world that Olivier Bernier recreates.
