Princesse des Ursins, loyal subject of the king of France and foreign princess in Rome (1675-1701)

Abstract : Music is a central topic in the late seventeenth-century letters of Marie-Anne de La Trémoille, known as the Princesse des Ursins. Made Roman by her marriage, the princess nonetheless asserted herself as a devoted subject of the king of France and served as an important intermediary in Franco-Roman musical, cultural, and political relations. This essay sheds light on the cultural program that she developed, including the entertainments she organized in order to strengthen the prestige of France in Rome. Her political choices emphasize her role of go-between, and illustrate the possibilities of a feminine diplomacy.
