I was visiting the Palace of Mafra when the tour guide told us to watch Vatel.
If you remember, in Angélique books, François Vatel is pointed as a great cheff and maître d'hôtel. He existed in real life.

If you like this time period, and the court, you should watch it. You can even watch how the king had someone to wipe his ass. Literally.
And lots of people from the books (the real ones) are there: Louis XIV, the queen Marie-Thérèse, Philippe d'Orleans, the Prince de Condé, the Marquis de Lauzun, the Marquise de Montespan, Louise de la Vallière, Colbert...
The plots, the affairs, the magnificence, the madness, it's all there. It's a great movie with excellent actors and an incridible work to show us the richness some lived in.

True, Vatel is a great movie ;-)

François Vatel was the majordomo of Nicolas Fouquet and later as well of the prince de Condé.
We all do know Fouquet and prince the Conde, from the books Angelique.

The first one was arch-enemy of Joffrey & Angelique, and had his finger in the play around
the trial against count Joffrey de Peyrac, the second one was later owner of the palace Beautreilles,
which Angelique did win back in a card game.

PS: In the first German edition of the book Angelique we can find stuff, which can be found in any another language not even in new integral editions.

Angeliques visit in Fouquet's palace Vaux de Vicomte. :!: :!:
