Cardinal Bernis on Madame de Pompadour


“The Marquise knew none of the vices of ambition, but she suffered from all the petty afflictions typical for a woman intoxicated with her own appearance; and so, she hurt unintentionally, and she did good exactly the same way; her friendship was as jealous as love; and it was certainly as light and just as inconstant.”

    she was a very headstrong and brave lady to bed a king back when the kings could and did behead wives / mistresses. i know it sounds odd but the first time i ever heard of her was in an episode of doctor who. from that grew a fascination for her. i think you have an awesome blog! incoming follower alert!! 🙂
