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, for now www.angelique.international in German and in English. 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), which in 1952 started writing a historical novel. Her husband Serge Golon has helped her in the beginning with the milieu and source studies. The former publishers of that time insisted on putting the male pseudonym "Serge Golon" as co-author, so that the works seemed more serious. For this reason the married couple Anne and Serge Golon were for decades referred as the authors (more in Section about Anne Golon).

Why was not Angélique published for so long?
Angélique in recent years could not be and should not be published. 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, now the copyright issues are basically resolved.

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 or Version d'Origine; 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 recasts 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 is working on the final part of the series "Le Royaume de France" (The Kingdom of the France), which is supposed to be so extensive that it should include three brand new volumes. Unfortunately, she does not have so much time as she would wish to have, because she is casually working on the new republished editions of Angélique. She asserts her readers that her heroes, they can only remain together. For this moment, Anne Golon is collecting the materials for the new sequel "Le Royaume de France". She already accumulated a lot of materials, handwritten notes and researchs... (more in section Books).
