KtoCzyta.pl
„The Royal Life Guard – A Historical Romance of the Suppression of the French Monarchy” is a historical romance of the suppression of the French monarchy. France had been changed to a limited monarchy from an absolute one, and King Louis XVI had solemnly sworn to defend the new Constitution. But it had been remarked by shrewd observers that he had not attended the Te Deum at the Paris Cathedral, with the members of the National Assembly: that is, he would tell a lie but not commit perjury. Fans of classic historical fiction will delight in this gem from Alexandre Dumas, author of such masterpieces as „The Count of Monte Cristo” and „The Three Musketeers”. Bringing together fast-paced action and a richly detailed look at life in a bygone era, „The Royal Life Guard” merits a place on your must-read list.
