The Royal Succession

Louis X is dead, poisoned, murdered, by the hand of Mahaut d'Artois. Her plan is simple - to clear the path to the throne tor her son-in-law Philippe. However, there is the small matter of Queen Clemence and her unborn child. As the country is thrown into turmoil, Philippe of Poitiers must use any means necessary to save his country from anarchy. But how far is he willing to go to clear his path to the throne and become king in his own right?

Maurice Druon (April 23, 1918 – April 14, 2009) was a French novelist and a member of the Académie française.

Born in Paris, France, Druon was the nephew of the writer Joseph Kessel, with whom he translated the Chant des Partisans, a French Resistance anthem of World War II, with music and words (in Russian) originally by Anna Marly.

In 1948 he received the Prix Goncourt for his novel Les grandes familles.

He was elected to the 30th seat of the Académie française on December 8, 1966, succeeding Georges Duhamel. On the death of Henri Troyat on 2 March 2007, he became the Dean of the Académie, its longest-serving member.

While his scholarly writing earned him a seat at the Académie, he is best known for a series of seven historical novels published in the 1950s under the title Les Rois Maudits (The Accursed Kings).

He was Minister of Cultural Affairs (1973–1974) in Pierre Messmer's cabinet, and a deputy of Paris (1978–1981).

Druon was a descendant of Brazilian author Odorico Mendes.
