called after all The Law of the Males for me was the xplanation if offers of how the Salic law came to be adopted by France to govern monarchical inheritance Druon thinks that This Was Another Curse For French HistoryThe Origins Of This was another curse for French historyThe origins of this as practiced from the Middle Ages onwards lie in a Frankish Civil Code from the time of the Salians 4th and 5th Centuries The complete Salian code governed many aspects but one of its lements was Angels Whiskey exhumed by the protagonist of this volume to designate himself Regent and Heir and KingWith this new reformulation of the law women were pushed aside from the line of royal inheritance Entirely Similar to this but not as severe is the Agnatic law in which the male is given priority over an older female but women are notntirely Ritual Alliances of the Putian Plain: Volume Two: A Survey of Village Temples and Ritual Activities eliminated from the linePhilippe V became King because he succeeded instablishing this manipulated interpretation and after the death of the infant son of his older brother instead of the throne going to the infant s lder sister Jeanne of Britany he got himself crowned as the next male kin to the soon poisoned new bornDrone s description of the ostentatious crowning ceremony at Reims without forgetting to nvelop it with riveting suspense is another highlight of this fourth volumeI look forward to the remaining three volumes of this highly Wish You Were Here: An Essential Guide to Your Favorite Music Scenes—from Punk to Indie and Everything in Between entertaining anddifying seriesFascinating times those were Following the poisoning of Louis X in the last The Day Christ Was Born episode this book picks up immediately with the struggle over who will be Regent in the interim until Clemence s baby is born Various contenders with different motives keep the politics lively while with anye on the long term we see the adoption of Salic law which 5 Nights: Sinful Delights Boxed Set excludes women from the monarchical successionIntertwined with this plot is the on going debate and discord over who will be the new pope till Philippe takes a creative approach to forcing a decision While the politics take centre stage some of the characterization lets the book down Mahaut is turning and into a cartoonish pantomime villain oh yes she is while Clemence and Marie are stock angelic wives and mothers The kerfuffle over the babies at thend wouldn t be out of place in a trashy domestic noir thrillerCompensation comes in the form of historical interest such as the detailed coronation and christening scenes I m looking forward to Isabella coming back into the story in the next The Seventh Witch episode Anotherxcellent part in this series Each time I follow with interest and amazement the And the Miss Ran Away with the Rake events of so many centuries ago M Druon did anxcellent job with his series I think if authors wrote history like this people would love historyThe series does ask some dedication though While I have knowledge of French history Trickle Down Tyranny: Crushing Obama's Dream of the Socialist States of America each time I need to go study the family tree of these kings This book focuses on the accession of Phillip V of France who reigned in thearly 14th century It s fourth in a series which I advise reading from the beginning it s worth itDruon s novels seem so different from recent historical fiction he s very present as an authorial voice telling the story to the reader and loves dropping in to provide psychological analysis of his characters decisions as well as the occasional bit of ironic information about their future Somehow though this doesn t detract from the sense of reality that these books have for me the characters seem real and immediate in their concerns The Pocket Wife even as the narrative voice reminds me that they re distant and strange The psychological analysis makes for very vivid characters and thus the personalities of the historical figures are uite strong in my mind which is going to be great fun when I read actual history of thera I have no idea what the prose in the original is like but I m pleased by Humphrey Hare s translation it s clear and readable and there are some great descriptive phrases Maurice Druon s Accursed Kings series is an The Color of Our Sky easy read but don t let that fool you The Royal Succession was so packed tight with intrigue and underhanded dealing sprinkled with the odd murder or revolt that one had to really keep on one s toes whilst readingasily The king is dead his wife is pregnant but there is of course a vacuum and a position of power that could become permanent if the child to be born doesn t uite make it Nature and Politics abhor a vacuumWhile we re at it the Papal Crown is vacant and it doesn t look like anyone is going to fill that mpty space in a hurry unless perhaps things are pushed a little Power It s all about Power. A na ualidade de defensores do direito ue assiste à suposta filha bastarda do rei a jovem Joana de Navarra Para preparar a sua subida ao trono Filipe de Poitiers irmão do falecido monarca invocará uma certa lei sálica a «lei dos varões» ue na verdade foi forjada para as circunstâncias mas daí m diante definirá as regras da sucessão na monaruia francesa O desaparecimento do filho póstumo de Luís o Teimoso permite ue permite ue Filipe se torne Filipe V o Long. ,


Louis X is dead Poisoned by Mahaut d Artois The throne of France Is Open Or Is open or is ueen Clemence is pregnant and the unborn child The throne of France is open or is it ueen Clemence is pregnant and the unborn child male is the true heir Meanwhile Louis brother Philippe the Count of Poitiers becomes the RegentThis is the story of how Philippe negotiates the treacherous landscape of French Royal politics Having secured himself as Regent until ueen Clemence gives birth he manages to apply the old Saliue often called Salic in English law where only a male may inherit the Crown The various conflicts and intrigues contained in this tale I shall not get into since that s why you should read the book I will point out some respect for Philippe and His Machinations The Story Ends With The Death Of Jean machinations The story Obsession ends with the death of Jean the son of ueen Clemence and her subseuent travels as well as the rise of Philippe to become Philippe V King of France aka Philippe the Long Full of intrigue murder lies and violence this is why I chuckle when I hear parents cooing to their daughters and calling them Princess Are you SURE you want your daughter to be a Princess Maybe you should read history and see what kind of a life it REALLY is To sit on the Throne takes a combination of talent birth luck and ability otherwise you won t sit longNO ONE in power is EVER truly innocent or good If you believe that well no offence but you aren t dealing with reality just wishing something were a certain way Might as well be religiousReading the real life stories of the historical figures who created the nations we now live in will humble some of the machinations we see on Game of Thrones Sospecially if you live in Europe if you pass by the old palaces and castles of these historical figures pay them some due respect Consider your actions in their shoes and wonder if your reign would have lasted Cabaret: A Roman Riddle even a week Something to think about But do take the time to read this wonderful historical fiction about the powerful houses vying for the Crown of France This is anpic time for both the Crowns of England and France weak Kings Edward II and Louis X will lead their lands into a time of deep conflict and rebellion Highly recommnded This is my second or third time reading through The Accursed Kings series by Maurice Druon and I have to say I am always impressed by it It is by far my favorite historical fiction series Druon s skill with language and characterization makes vents that happened over six hundred years ago sound fresh and fascinating It is also a intricate study on politics and how gos and personalities have influenced historyThe fourth installement of the series weirdly translated as The Royal Succession in English when the original title actually meant the law of males a reference to laws installed to prevent women from inheriting powerful positions opens at the death of Louis X His uncle Charles de Valois and his brother Philippe de Poitiers both have their ye on the regency as Louis heir is still in the womb While this bickering takes place in Paris a different power play is going on at the papal conclave where the French and Italian cardinals try to put their favorite on the throne of Avignon or bring the papacy back to Rome The focus of this book as the title suggests is to see who will be king after Louis His wife Cl mence was pregnant at the time of his passing but this was still no certainty of an heir since it was possible that her child was a girl in which case Marguerite de Bourgogne s daughter would have been Louis oldest living child But there had never been a situation where a woman was heir to the throne before and as there were several power hungry male relatives vying for power a female sovereign was not a desirable option Very soon uestions of allegiance and legitimacy push the characters towards intrigue and conspiracyThis might be my favorite book of the series after The Iron King because it puts some of my favorite characters at the forefront Philippe the Tall is by far Philippe the Fair s most competent son and the only one of the three who has natural leadership He is shrewed cool as a cucumber and actually thinks of the kingdom of France and not simply of his own satisfaction The dialogues that involve him are always sharp and delightful Featured proheminently in this tome is also the Cardinal Jacues Du ze an unorthodox contender for the role of Holy Father The two men understand ach other very well and they will use their keen minds to settle the conclave s struggle once and for all in a most interesting way Du ze s life is a fascinating story and the only thing I can fault this book with is not diging further into the background of this most unusual man of the cloth And of course Philippe s machavellian mother in law Mahaut d Artois is unleashed in this All Roads Lead Home episode the lenghts to which she will go to see her daughter as ueen of France are impressive and.
