Overview

Priest. Lover. Statesman.

Cardinal Armand-Jean du Plessis, duc de Richelieu is one of the most famous -- or infamous politicians of all time. Made a villain in the popular Dumas novel, "The Three Musketeers," the real man was a dedicated public servant loyal to king and country. A man of logic and reason, he transformed how we think about nations and nationality. He secularized wars between countries, patronized the arts for the sake of the public good, founded the first newspaper in France, and created France as the modern country we know today.

Behind the scenes, du Plessis frequently suffered from crippling migraines and malaria. Hidden from view, but ever at his side stood Anne Rochefeuille, his dear friend, nurse-caretaker, and lover. His intellectual equal, Anne worked tirelessly to empower her cardinal to accomplish greatness, their love for each other forbidden by the Roman Catholic church Armand served.

Filled with period music, dance, and plenty of romance, "His Red Eminence" transports you back to the court of King Louis XIII in all its vibrant and living color.

Includes eight period songs, plus prayers, a detailed timeline, and extensive bibliography so you can keep learning.

Winner of the 2020 Godiva Book Award for best self published book of 2019.
