HRH Princess Michael of Kent discusses with Damian Thompson the third volume of her Anjou trilogy: as with Chipping Campden’s Baptist Hicks, wealthy merchant Jacques Coeur is money lender to his King.
When Charles VII becomes Coeur’s partner in profitable trade within France and the Levant, Coeur’s path is intricately linked to that of Charles’s mother-in-law, Yolande and her protege and Charles’s mistress, the captivating Agnes Sorel.
Praise for volume one: “Meticulously researched and powerfully evoked.” Philippa Gregory
“… takes the reader to the heart of this glamorous, dangerous world, and holds them spellbound.” Julian Fellowes
HRH Princess Michael of Kent moved to London from Vienna to continue her historical studies, including the History of Fine and Decorative Art at the V&A, and has lectured on historical topics for more than twenty five years. Her other books include The Queen of Four Kingdoms, Agnes Sorel: Mistress of Beauty, and The Serpent and the Moon
Damian Thompson, PhD in the Sociology of Religion from the LSE, is associate editor of The Spectator, where he writes about religion and classical music, and is editorial director of the Catholic Herald magazine. He is author of four books on subjects ranging from apocalyptic belief to addiction.
