Read Lady of Monsoreau (Chicot the Jester) for free

Known by different names in English, “La dame de Monsoreau” is a novel by French author Alexandre Dumas (father), best known for his novel “The Three Musketeers“.

Monsoreau is the second part of the trilogy “The last Valois“, that follows closely the tragic history of this French dynasty. It’s the second of the three novels, thus acting as sequel of “Queen Margot” (a.k.a. “Marguerite de Valois“), and prequel of “The Fourty-Five Guardsmen” (a.k.a. “Les Quarante-cinq“).

In this novel, Dumas focus the attention on the love triangle between Henri III‘s brother François d’Anjou, his servants Louis de Bussy d’Amboise, and Charles de Chambes (comte de Monsoreau) for the love of the wife of Charles, Diana de Meridor (the Lady of Monsoreau on the book title).

More interesting than this main topic, however, is the portrait of Henri III’s jester, Chicot, that takes the spotlight during most of the book. His abilities to detect and unmask complots will help the king retain his crown. But also, as the book progress, his cynic and cunning personality won’t be able to hide the fascinating personal link between him and Henri, which steals the readers interest from Bussy and Monsoreau’s plot. No less interesting is also the peculiar relationship between Henri III and his “Mignons”, the pack of the king`s favourites.
