Book review

Louis II de Bourbon (1621-86), known as Le Grand Condé, stood alongside Richelieu and Mazarin as one of the key figures who shaped the reign of Louis XIV In response to profound upheavals in their world, his contemporaries looked to him to satisfy their need for a hero. Originally the warrior-hero par excellence, Condé was redefined by sucessive generations as the ideal subject of the absolutist state, as the epitome of civilized behaviour, and finally, as the exemplar of the triumph of faith over reason. In this first detailed study in English of Le Grand Condé's significance for his contemporaries, Mark Bannister reveals the complexity of the ideological patterns forming and reforming in seventeenth-century France, and the perennial need to believe in the existence of an iconic figure, incarnating new values as they emerge.
