Character description

Marie Mancini (1639-1715) was one of 5 sisters, nieces of Cardinal Mazarin, chief minister of France. He summoned them from their home in Italy in order to arrange wealthy matches for them. Marie was educated in a convent and grew into a beautiful, charming young woman. The young King Louis XIV fell in love with her and wanted to marry her; but he was persuaded to do his duty and give her up. She was married off in 1661 to Prince Lorenzo Colonna and later was one of the first women in France to publish her memoirs.
