Quick summary.

Histoires d’Amour de l’Histoire de France is a bit like the little story in the big story. We discover rather spicy anecdotes and love stories that have shaped the destiny of France.

What I loved.

  • Fluid, easy and exciting writing.
  • Anecdotes, sometimes funny, sometimes amazing.
  • We rediscover the history of France from a new angle.
  • Certain historical facts are rectified, including things from history textbooks.
  • Facts are verified and proven.
  • Stories are often relatively short.
  • There is historical continuity, which makes it possible to go through the whole history of France, all in a very playful way.

What I enjoyed the less.

  • In my old edition, there are eight volumes. When you’ve finished one, you’re still hungry… which is also a good thing!
  • The stories about Queen Isabeau are long. It must be said that her actions were particularly libertine, that her lust for power made her perverse, and that she had a huge impact on the history of our country. In particular, she gave France to the English and gave the idea of burning Jeanne d’Arc.
  • The pages of my old paperback edition stand out. I saw an online commentary talking about the same problem and recommending the hardcover edition.

Verdict on Histoires d’Amour de l’Histoire de France.
