The Queen's Necklace - Dumas AlexandreThis antiquarian book contains Alexandre Dumas's 1849 novel, "The Queen's Necklace". It is based on a famous case of fraud and royal scandal concerning Marie Antoinette's complicity in a plot to deceive the crown jewellers as to the cost of a diamond necklace, which further spoiled the already-tarnished reputation of the queen. Although seeming to present an idealised picture of Marie Antoinette, it also illustrates the decay and impending decline of the contemporary nobility. A thrilling tale by a master story-teller, "The Queen's Necklace" is highly recommended for fans of historical fiction, and would make for a worthy addition to any bookshelf. Alexandre Dumas (1802-1870) was a famous French writer. He is best remembered for his exciting romantic sagas, including "The Three Musketeers" and "The Count of Monte Cristo". Despite making a great deal of money from his writing, Dumas was almost perpetually penniless thanks to his extravagant lifestyle. His novels have been translated into nearly a hundred different languages, and have inspired over 200 motion pictures. We are republishing this antiquarian book in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
