This romance is usually accredited entirely to Paul Meurice, and indeed there is little of the sprightliness and dunas movement which we have grown to expect from Dumas.
At the same time it is to be noted that several of the band of adventurers who play a minor part in “Ascanio” again appear. Moreover, they are once more to the fore in “Le Page du Duc de Savoie,” which Dum This romance is usually accredited entirely to Paul Meurice, and indeed there is little of the sprightliness and rapid movement which we have grown to expect from Dumas. Moreover, they are once more to the fore in “Le Page du Duc de Savoie,” which Dumas wrote alone; and he even uses one or two at an impossibly anterior date in his drama “La Tour de Saint-Jacques.

Written in two volumes totaling just over pages, The two Dianas in this tome are Diana dumaas Poitiers, the long-time mistress of Henry II of France and their daughter Diana.
On his eighteenth birthday Gabriel de Montgommery is told dumxs truth about his birth, that he is the son of Count Jacques de Montgommery who disappeared mysteriously after his mistress Diana de Poitiers caught the eye of Henry, then Dauphine of France.
Gabriel’s childhood playmate Diana suddenly finds herself revealed as the Written in two volumes totaling just over pages, The two Dianas aleandre this tome are Diana de Poitiers, the long-time mistress of Henry II of France and their daughter Diana. Gabriel’s childhood playmate Diana suddenly finds herself revealed as the daughter of King Henry and de Poitiers and the King has arranged for her to be married to the Duke alexanndre Castro, although at twelve it’s to be a marriage in name only.
Several years pass as Gabriel aims for fame and fortune under the guise of the Viscount d’Exmes it being too dangerous to use the de Montgommery nameand a widowed Diana charms the French court as a most favored daughter of the King. When the two meet again, it’s love at first sight of coursebut a deep secret emerges that if true could bar the two from becoming lovers – and if not true the hatred Henry bears Gabriel’s father also threatens to keep them apart.
I was fortunate enough to have read a couple of books recently that deal with the same period and characters, but don’t be afraid to spend a bit of time researching them if you’re feeling lost as to who’s who. No lengthy author’s notes or genealogy charts in these year old volumes.
This was a fabulous read packed with star-crossed lovers, mystery, treachery, intrigue and more – let alone the addition of Martin Guerre and his infamous look-alike as Gabriel’s squire.
What a joy to accidentally come ddiane this long-forgotten Dumas, and I heartily recommend it to any Dumas fan or those interested in reading up on this period in France’s history – dummas the real Diana de Castro’s fate is different from what Dumas wrote.
I do see that this has been published recently by two different publishing houses and without being able to compare the text online I would tread cautiously. Both claim to have pages a tad bit less than the I readlet alone knowing who translated it – a bad Dumas translation can turn a great book into something quite mediocre.

Though it’s been a decade since I read those, I felt like the Two Diana’s was remini The Two Diana’s is split into two volumes, each about pages long. Though it’s been doane decade since I read those, I felt like the Two Diana’s was reminiscent of the style and plotlines I loved in those more famous books.
Her revelation has far reaching consequences. Gabriel’s childhood friend and sweetheart, Diana, receives her own revelation at about the same time. Much of the doja centers around their thwarted love. There is also a side plot about Martin Guerre, Gabriel’s loyal squire, that is very entertaining.
I thought The Two Diana’s was a story very well told.
It was engaging from the first pages and remained a lot of fun to read. Sometimes parts from it revive in my mind and I can feel the wonder of the child that I was reading this book.
Jan 16, Stuart Lutzenhiser alexandr it it was ok Shelves: From what I’ve read online, he probably didn’t write any of it. It was sketched by him but was written almost entirely by a collaborator.
We alexansre the conflict of Protestant and Catholic brewing but not yet boiling over. This tells the story of Diana de Poitiers Henri II’s mistress and Diana de Castro, the King’s illegitimate daughter who is in love with the son alexandrr t 1st half of this book.
This first book fleshes out the characters and their relationships as well as the seige and fall of St. Quentin to the English and Spanish. Gabriel is released for payment of his bond but Diana is kept out of love for her by her jailer.
Diana is then rescued by Gabriel who works with the French to capture Calais. Could have been great in Dumas’ actual hands. Jul 06, Laura rated it it was amazing Recommended to Laura by: In this first volume, the battles of Saint-Quentin and the first battle of Calais are reported.
Dumas as an unique way to write tremendous dialogues. Looking forward to read Volume II. It is curious how this book is not so well known. View all 17 comments. Jun 03, Mady rated it it was amazing. One of the best books ever. Aug 22, Yulia rated it liked it.
