The Links
The year 2006 marked a turning point for the phenomenon Angélique. In Switzerland, the books were republished in a new edition of "Angélique L'Intégrale", in unabridged versions, as originally written by the author and the work of Anne Golon gets the first official fan webpage in the Czech Republic www.angelique.cz

This non-profit website is dedicated to Anne Golon and her book series Angélique was planned several years, but it was always postponed because of other projects. Madame Golon and her daughter Nadja, full of determination and energy, convinced me on a rainy day in Versailles, telling me, it is high time to finally start the project. In 2006, the first Czech website was born, all dedicated to the theme Angélique.

The large expansion wave came in year 2014 after we started the project Angélique International with discussion forums in other languages, and now there is www.angelique.international in English, German and Portuguese. Our aim is to unite all fans of Angélique around the whole world.

Our goal is the International reconnaissance and elimination of myths, which were born in recent years around Angélique. Another part of our webpage provides the characteristic features about the time period of the Sun King: French architecture, art, literature and movies about the time period of Louis XIV. Especially with the historical research and in the mutual exchange, we see great growth potential for this website.

If no name is available for an article on the website, I am the author. A commercial as well as non-commercial use of the articles is not possible (or just with the permission of the authors). On the contrary, the pictures and newspaper clippings (especially everything in the section "Movies"), remains the property of the publisher or the production company. The other photos are original and the original version can be found mostly in the photo gallery below.

In accordance with international internet law, we remind relevant information that the author and owner of a Czech site makes no ownership or copyright claims for any of presented novel and movie characters and situations.

Who is the author of Angélique?
The author of Angélique is Anne Golon (1921-2017), who started writing this historical novel in 1952. Her husband Serge Golon has helped her with the studies of milieu and historical sources in the beginning. The publishers of that time insisted on stating the name of a male author to give "more weight" to this work. For this reason there were referred as the authors married couple Anne and Serge Golon for decades (more in section Anne Golon).

Why was not Angélique published for so long?
Angélique could not and ought not be published in the recent years. The novel Angélique was published in many countries in the nineties – but it was in the fact illegal. After the death of Serge Golon, the publishers said he was the sole author of the novel and Anne Golon lived in absolute poverty (see section Anne Golon - Present and Future). However, the copyright issues are basically resolved from 2006.

Where is possible to get all those books for the moment?
The old books: 1) Antiquarian, 2) Library; The new editions: 1) You can begin to read the new French editions - l'Intégrale; 2) You can wait for the new edition of 'Angélique l'Intégrale' in your country or in language you speak.

What is the difference between the new edition of Angélique novels and the old issues?
The book series of 'Angélique l'Intégrale' becomes for the readers a major event because there have been made the countless unauthorized modifications in old editions of Angélique series (the most significant changes have been made in the last volumes). Since April 2006, there was worldwide initiated new, progressive publication of the novel series Angélique, edition l'Intégrale. Anne Golon tried to rewrote all the Angélique books which have been edited and shortened by their publishers. The complete Angélique series are now finally introduced in new, unabridged and fundamentally improved version (more in section Books).

Is the book "The Victory of Angélique" a final part of the series?
No, it's not. Anne Golon worked on the final part of the series "Le Royaume de France" (The Kingdom of the France), which was supposed to be so extensive that it should include three brand new volumes. Unfortunately, she had not so much time as she would wish to have. She asserted her readers that her heroes can only remain together. Anne Golon was also collecting the materials for the new sequel "Le Royaume de France". She accumulated a lot of materials, handwritten notes and researchs... (more in section Books).
