A conspiracy under Louis XIII. 1640: A witchcraft trial. A pyre. A conspiracy. Louis XIII fainting with love, guilt and hatred before his young and graceful favourite. Richelieu sailing up the Rhone in a boat lined with crimson velvet which dragged behind him the boat in which Cinq-Mars and de Thou, in chains, were led to the execution: their death would mean the end of the old nobility, crushed by power and reason of state. Following in the footsteps of Walter Scott and waiting for Dumas, Cinq-Mars is the first, the most dramatic and undoubtedly the most successful of French historical novels.
