            Jean-Baptiste Colbert est sans doute l'un des personnages politiques les plus illustres et en meme temps des plus secrets de histoire de France. Ne le 29 aout 1619 a Reims, et mort le 6 septembre 1683 a Paris, il fut successivement l'un des principaux ministres de Louis XIV, Cont...roleur general des finances de 1665 a 1683, secretaire d'Etat de la Maison du roi, et secretaire d'Etat de la Marine de 1669 a 1683. Repute cassant et peu disert, cette eminence grise du royaume n'etait guere aimee de la Cour. Le cardinal Mazarin, peu avant sa mort le 9 mars 1661, recommande a Louis XIV de prendre Colbert a son service par la phrase celebre: Sire, je dois tout a votre Majeste, mais je m'acquitte de ma dette en lui presentant Colbert . Cet ouvrage revient sur les principales etapes de son ascension fulgurante au sommet du systeme monarchique et sur ses principales realisations. Si le Roi Soleil etait la tete pensante de nombreux projets, Colbert en fut l'artisan pour leur realisation. Colbert - La face cache du Soleil revient sur le role souvent meconnu de ce grand commis de l'Etat.

            Catherine de Medicis. La femme qui fut roi. Personnage controverse de l'Histoire de France, reputee pour sa politique machiavelique, Catherine de Medicis ne cesse de trainer une sulfureuse reputation depuis des siecles.

Ce livre decode la legende pour revenir sur le portrait de la femme de pouvoir qu'elle l'exerca trente ans, au moment ou se succedaient en France les plus apres tourments des guerres civiles et religieuses. Parvenant a maintenir l'unite du Royaume, celle qui fut par ailleurs mecene, batisseuse, et collectionneuse d'art, est encore l'objet aujourd'hui des jugements les plus ambigus. Ce livre s'essaye a demeler la part de verite entre l'histoire et le mythe.

            Captain The Honourable Sir Seymour John Fortescue GCVO, CMG (1856-1942) was a British naval officer and courtier who was an Equerry to the British sovereign and Serjeant-at-Arms in the House of Lords. His immediate family were well-connected in the military and also extensive lan...downers with property in Ireland, Devon, Gloucester and Lincolnshire. As a child he lived in Madeira for two years where Captain Henry Keppel (later Admiral of the Fleet) invited him on board his frigate Forte, a visit he remembers fondly in this memoir, and while at school he determined to go into the Navy. This he did in 1869, training as a Royal Navy cadet and graduating first class. A year later he was made midshipman and in 1871 joined HMS Bristol, travelling widely, and in the following years was assigned to several other ships. In 1878 he was promoted to Lieutenant, and after serving in the bombardment of Alexandria in 1882, in the Egyptian War and in Eastern Sudan, was promoted to the rank of Commander in 1890. In 1901 he retired from the Navy with the rank of Captain. In 1893 he was appointed an equerry in waiting to the Prince of Wales and remained in that post after the Prince became King Edward VII, serving throughout his reign. After the King's death in 1910, his successor George V appointed him an Extra Equerry to the King, a position renewed by Edward VIII and George VI in 1937. From 1910-36 he also served as Serjeant-at-Arms to the House of Lords. His long service to the Royal Household was rewarded with several honours. This memoir, dedicated to Edward VII's widow Queen Alexandra, was first published in 1920 and is illustrated with photographs.

            In this companion biography to the acclaimed Victoria, A. N. Wilson offers a deeply textured and ambitious portrait of Prince Albert, published to coincide with the 200th anniversary of the royal consort's birth. For more than six decades, Queen Victoria ruled a great Empire at t...he height of its power. Beside her for more than twenty of those years was the love of her life, her trusted husband and father of their nine children, Prince Albert. But while Victoria is seen as the embodiment of her time, its values, and its paradoxes, it was Prince Albert, A. N. Wilson expertly argues, who was at the vanguard of Victorian Britain's transformation as a vibrant and extraordinary center of political, technological, scientific, and intellectual advancement. Far more than just the product of his age, Albert was one of its influencers and architects. A composer, engineer, soldier, politician, linguist, and bibliophile, Prince Albert, more than any other royal, was truly a genius. It is impossible to understand nineteenth century England without knowing the story of this gifted visionary leader, Wilson contends. Albert lived only forty-two years. Yet in that time, he fathered the royal dynasties of Germany, Russia, Spain, and Bulgaria. Through Victoria, Albert and her German advisers pioneered the idea of the modern constitutional monarchy. In this sweeping biography, Wilson demonstrates that there was hardly any aspect of British national life which Albert did not touch. When he was made Chancellor of the University of Cambridge in his late twenties, it was considered as purely an honorific role. But within months, Albert proposed an extensive reorganization of university life in Britain that would eventually be adopted, making it possible to study science, languages, and modern history at British universities-a revolution in education that has changed the world.
