Sun King Rises: a Tale of Intrigue at the Court of Louis Xiv by Yves Jego

1661 is a year of destiny for France and its young King, Louis XIV. Cardinal Mazarin, the prime minister who has reigned throughout the king's early years, lies dying. As a fierce power struggle develops to succeed him, a religious brotherhood, guardian of a centuries old secret, also sees its chance to influence events. Gabriel de Pontbriand, a young actor, becomes unwittingly involved when documents stolen from Mazarin's palace fall into his hands. The coded papers will alter Gabriel's life for ever, and their explosive contents have the power to change the course of history for France and Louis XIV. Fact and fiction combine in a fast-moving story of intrigue, conspiracy and love set in seventeenth century France.
