Summary
  • "17 août 1661. Le surintendant Fouquet donne une fête éblouissante au château de Vaux-le-Vicomte. Erreur fatale: Louis XIV est jaloux et Fouquet se retrouve en prison. Cette malencontreuse soirée aura une conséquence inattendue: le jeune roi décide de bâtir le château de Versailles. Pour réaliser ce projet colossal, il s'entoure des meilleurs artistes - dont François de Francine, qui fait jaillir fontaines et cascades, donnant tout leur éclat aux jardins dessinés par Le Nôtre. Dans cet univers de luxe et de beauté s'épanouit Clémence, la fille du fontainier, surnommée "Ondine" depuis qu'on l'a surprise se baignant à demi nue dans le bassin de Saturne. Espiègle et séductrice, Clémence plaira à Louis XIV qui en fera sa protégée. Dans ce nouveau rendez-vous avec l'Histoire, Jean Diwo nous entraîne dans les coulisses de la cour du Roi-Soleil, où se mêlent les intrigues de la politique et de l'amour." -- goodreads.com
  • "17 August 1661. The Fouquet gives a dazzling party at Vaux-le-Vicomte. Fatal error: Louis Fouquet is jealous and ends up in prison. This unfortunate event has an unexpected consequence: the young king decided to build the Palace of Versailles. To realize this huge project, he surrounds himself with the best artists - including François Francine, who brought forth fountains and cascades, giving all their splendor to the gardens designed by Le Nôtre. In this world of luxury and beauty flourishes Clemence, daughter of the caretaker, nicknamed "Ondine" since people were surprised to see her half-naked, bathing in the Saturn Basin. Playful and seductive, Clemence appeals to Louis XIV... who will take care of her. In this new appointment with history, Jean Diwo takes us behind the scenes of the court of the Sun King, where the intrigues of politics and love mingle." -- cataloger's translation of goodreads.com
