Bestselling author Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent talks about the third and final volume of her Anjou trilogy, Quicksilver.

The story centres on merchant Jacques Coeur, a fiercely ambitious man of humble origins. He rises to become a trusted confidante and champion of the Anjou royal family and one of the richest and most powerful figures in 15th-century France.  He is particularly close to Yolande, Queen of the Four Kingdoms, and the beautiful Agnès Sorel. The stories of the three intertwine in devastating fashion and Jacques’ ambition and generosity prove to be his downfall.

The Princess is author of five previous books, The Serpent and the Moon: Two Rivals for the Love of a Renaissance King, Crowned in a Far Country: Portraits of Eight Royal Brides, Cupid and the King: Five Royal Paramours, The Queen of Four Kingdoms, and Agnès Sorel Mistress of Beauty. Her Royal Highness has been lecturing on historical topics for more than 25 years.

This event is part of the festival’s women in society programme sponsored by HSBC.
