The Bourbon Dynasty: Madame du Barry: The Whore with the Heart of Gold( 1743-1793)

$ 750.00

Madame du Barry, the beautiful second mistress of Louis XV.  She was ther stereotypical “whore with the heart of gold”.  Extravagant and loving she made Louis’ last years good ones.  She was loathed by much of the court and specially by Marie Antoinette.  After Louis XV’s death du Barry  retired to her country estate and almost escaped the revolution.  Through a series of naive miscalculations she ended up being dragged to the scaffold where she struggled and pleaded for her life.

Note: The spectacular diamond necklace behind the scandal and trial of “the affair of the necklace” was originally offered to Madame Du Barry for two million livres( twenty million dollars). Louis XV died before his could purchase it for her. Lucky for her!
