This is my second or third time reading through The Accursed Kings series by Maurice Druon and I have to say I am always impressed by it It is by far my favorite historical fiction series Druon s skill with language and characterization makes events that happened over six hundred years ago sound fresh and fascinating It is also a intricate study on politics and how egos and personalities have influenced historyThe fourth installement of the series weirdly translated as The Royal Succession in English when the original title actually meant the law of males a reference to laws installed to prevent women from inheriting powerful positions opens at the death of Louis X His uncle Charles de Valois and his brother Philippe de Poitiers both have their eye on the regency as Louis heir is still in the womb While this bickering takes place in Paris a different power play is going on at the papal conclave where the French and Italian cardinals try to put their favorite on the throne of Avignon or bring the papacy back to Rome The focus of this book as the title suggests is to see who will be king after Louis His wife Cl mence was pregnant at the time of his passing but this was still no certainty of an heir since it was possible that her child was a girl in which case Marguerite de Bourgogne s daughter would have been Louis oldest living child But there had never been a situation where a woman was heir to the throne before and as there were several power hungry male relatives vying for power a female sovereign was not a desirable option Very soon uestions of allegiance and legitimacy push the characters towards intrigue and conspiracyThis might be my favorite book of the series after The Iron King because it puts some of my favorite characters at the forefront Philippe the Tall is by far Philippe the Fair s most competent son and the only one of the three who has natural leadership He is shrewed cool as a cucumber and actually thinks of the kingdom of France and not simply of his own satisfaction The dialogues that involve him are always sharp and delightful Featured proheminently in this tome is also the Cardinal Jacues Du ze an unorthodox contender for the role of Holy Father The two men understand each other very well and they will use their keen minds to settle the conclave s struggle once and for all in a most interesting way Du ze s life is a fascinating story and the only thing I can fault this book with is not diging further into the background of this most unusual man of the cloth And of course Philippe s machavellian mother in law Mahaut d Artois is unleashed in this episode the lenghts to which she will go to see her daughter as ueen of France are impressive and horrifying but I still loved every word of her story arc Still locked in a vicious conflict with her nephew Robert over the county of Artois she plots schemes and strikes Her lady in waiting B atrice is almost as scary as her with her secrets and witchcraft She drops hints of gruesome crimes into Mauhaut s willing ears and sets into motion terrible chains of eventGuccio and Marie s love story turns to tragedy in this episode and I never fail to feel a sharp stab of pain for the poor lovers who s connections with the mighty and powerful ruined their happiness Their story is not a simple romantic addition to the political arc of the book it is based on a real and intriguing story look for John I of France on Wikipedia if you are curious History can sometimes be even stranger than fictionAs you can imagine the historical details embedded in the narrative are impressive From the sort of food eaten to the remedies prescribed for various ailments and details of ceremonial clothing and social protocols Druon brings the reader back to a complicated era that we often romanticise or oversimplify Reading these books again it becomes increasingly obvious to me that Mr George RR Martin shamelessly ripped Druon off His stories of fantastical powerplays assassination and ruthlessness are very obviously inspired by The Accursed Kings and some characters of the Song of Ice and Fire series are clearly revampings of those found in Druon s work Oh well they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery5 solid stars Now I m off to go find the 1972 TV series DVDs
