The Lay of the Land (Chapter 1) - Forests in Revolutionary France
Start your review of Les Rois maudits extrait. J'ai aime la serie, sauf le dernier livre "Quand un Roi perd la France". Que du plaisir. A fantastic chunk of the royal history of France. A matter-of-fact approach of all the cruelty, plots, tragedy, deceit, drama and intrigues taking place among royal personages.
A simple and shocking way to trade anything for power, a time and place where human lives held less value than a title for those always ready to kill and betray. I've rarely read such a controversial and shocking book, the more so as it is inspired by real facts and people: the cursed dynasty of the French kings. Shelves: french-lit , favorites. This is a truly great historical series.
It shows that being a great villain requires a great deal of hard-work, intelligence and commitment. Moral scruples are a distinct disadvantage. The experience left Druon with the conviction that countries need great leaders like de Gaulle or Churchill if they are to be great. As well, it left him with a profound admiration for the British fighting man which shows th This is a truly great historical series.

As well, it left him with a profound admiration for the British fighting man which shows through in this dazzling set of novels. Save this series for a day when you want some fun. It is thrilling from beginning to end. A great way to learn some French history. It took me like 3 months to read all seven of them and it paid off I was overwhelmed with the cruelty of the people around the kings and queens and how they would do anything to get more power. Greed for more, that's how politics worked then and it's not so different on how it works now, the only difference is that now they won't poison you to get where you are.
I have read the first four volumes of this wonderful series and I can't wait to get the last three volumes. It brings French history alive. I love Maurice Druon's manner of getting inside his characters' heads and his wonderful reflections that resonate so well with my take on life. Un livre culte que je pourrais lire et relire sans jamais m'en lasser. This multiple-volumes saga there are 7 novels total has lately been brought back to the public consciousness because of George R. The accursed Kings is, basically, GOT, minus the dragons and the sorcery. Queen Cersei, for example, is in more ways than one a composite of the fabulously evil Mahaut and the queen of England Isabelle, of French descent.
In The Accursed Kings, as in GOT, gigantic egos, ruthless personal ambitions and deathly rivalries clash among a huge cast of colorful characters that all fight for power, intense lust and absolute love lead to disaster, horrendous murders and even more shocking violence change the course of History the scenes of torture in the TV version of GOT are nothing compared to what happens in these books , bloody battles and glorious feasts follow more intimate and quiet moments, religion and politics make for a toxic mixt that reflect on the reality of power in the Middle-Ages.
Not only does the writer offer a stunning and rollicking painting of an age that, as exotic as it may be, is in many ways and frighteningly not that different from ours, but he also delivers subtle, intelligent, and timeless thoughts on the nature of government, on what defines competence to rule and therefore incompetence too , and on what true political power represents and where, in case of corruption and unbalance - something that seems as common then as it is now - it can guide an entire nation.
The Accursed Kings is a monumental achievement that deserves to rank among the great historical chronicles of literature. Je viens de finir le dernier tome des Rois Maudits, de Maurice Druon. Je vous recommande vivement cette lecture! History is waaay more scary than anything imaginable! An absolutely awesome series. Chef d'oeuvre. Great saga, except for the seventh book, I almost didn't finish it.
