Buy for $9.99 Excerpt

Part of an eight-volume cycle about Marie Antoinette ‘The Hero of the People’ focuses on the conflict between King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette as to how France should be ruled. It is a novel focused on royal love, distinct from the previous entry ‘The Storming of the Bastille’ which was rife with revolutionary fighting spirit, this entry brings a humanity to the historically disliked royals. It is a fascinating read offering a brand new perspective on some of history’s most infamous figures.

Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) remains one of the most important figures in French and world literature to this day. His historical and romantic adventure pieces were largely inspired by his many travels and extraordinary lifestyle. His most famous novels include ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’, ‘The Three Musketeers’ and ‘Twenty Years After’. His works totalling more than one hundred thousand pages have been adapted in to more than two-hundred films.
