Louis XIV and the Power of Women
Women shaped the destiny of Louis XIV’s France.  Louis XIV shaped the destiny of French women.
Louis XIV arrived in this world on 5 September 1638 thanks to a birth regarded as a miracle of God. His mother, Anne of Austria, fostered the young sovereign’s belief in the absolute authority and divine right of kings.  Dr. Philip Mansel’s presentation will explore the Sun King’s motivated interest in the legal rights of women. Dr. Philip Mansel is a historian of courts and cities, and of France and the Ottoman Empire. A specialist on the later French monarchy, he has published fourteen books that have been translated into French, German, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Greek, Turkish, Albanian, Arabic and Chinese. His most recent book is King of the World: The Life of Louis XIV. In 2010 Philip Mansel was appointed Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Lettres in France, in 2012 received the annual London Library Life in Literature Award, and in 2016 was given the Order of the Crown in Belgium. Thanks to a generous concession from the publisher, viewers of Dr. Mansel’s presentation may purchase the book at a 30% discount by following this link to the University of Chicago Press website and using the code MANSEL30 during checkout.
