BLANCHE

Angélique Cevalier

A SPY IN THE FRENCH COURT

By night she rides and engages in sword fights.

By day she attends lessons in dance and etiquette.

1633. French Royal Court. There’s a quick-witted girl moving around the halls of the Louvre: it’s Blanche De La Fère, lady-in-waiting to Queen Anne and brave-hearted spy, not to mention able swordswoman at the headquarters of D’Artagnan’s musketeers! Fourteen-year-old Blanche has a rebellious heart and will stop at nothing to protect her queen from court intrigue…

* Subterfuges, chases, duels, pursuits across city rooftops…but also grand balls, secret messages and fluttering hearts.

* A modern adventure with plenty of thrills, telling of a courageous young girl who fights with both head and heart, and picks roses as lightly as she handles a sword.

Angélique Cevalier

History books cite three Angélique Chevaliers who, between the late 1600s and late 1800s, printed a variety of short publications in Reims, near Paris.

It was believed that the name Angélique had been passed through generations or was, perhaps, a nom de plume. This led to the suspicion that at least one of the three may have been a lady in the French king’s court, an aspiring swordswoman, a lady-in-waiting, Queen Anne of Austria’s personal spy. All excellent reasons, we think, for hiding your identity.
