MY BELOVED TALLEYRAND
by Steve Pieczenik
The Life Of A Scoundrel By His Last Mistress
In this thrilling, historical novel of turn-of-the-19th century intrigue, the tactics, betrayals and deceits of French foreign minister Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord are chronicled by his last mistress. As a debauched French aristocrat bishop, he renounced the Church and his nobility in order to save France from self-destruction. He supported and then helped to overthrow King Louis XVI, the leaders of the French Revolution, and finally Napoleon Bonaparte. After the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo, Talleyrand dominated the Congress of Vienna, determining the course of history in Europe for the next one hundred years.
