Duchesse de Praslin

Duchesse de Praslin


Three great mysteries that have fascinated historians, novelists and film-makers. Who was the Man In the Iron Mask - the illegitimate half-brother of Louis XIV? What was the real truth of the extravagant Diamond Necklace made for Queen Marie Antionette that so damaged her reputation just before the French Revolution? And the brutal murder of the Duchesse de Praslin that damaged King Louis-Philippe and provoked the 1848 revolutions that swept Europe.
