Period Paper is excited to offer a collection about various important figures from the 17th century French court. Instead of the usual images of King Louis XIV, these portraits delve a little deeper into several lesser-known characters, all of who have a place of their own in France's long and dignified history. Madame de Maintenon, Hortense Mancini, and Louis de Bourbon are just some of those figures.
