The Third Lion: A Novel about Talleyrand
Catbird Press | 224 pages | 1997 | ISBN: 0945774382 | PDF | 3.4 mb
French aristocrat, bishop, revolutionary, government minister. Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand- Périgord (1754-1838), known to history simply as Talleyrand, betrayed nearly everything and everyone—the aristocracy, the Church, the French Revolution, the Monarchy, and Napoleon. The Third Lion is an intimate novel about this man who out-Machiavellied Machiavelli, a survivor who not only outlived all his enemies, but plotted the coups and restorations that destroyed them.
