Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Saturday, 8 January 2022 is Angélique and the King.

Angélique and the King (French: Angélique et le Roy) is a 1959 novel by Anne Golon and Serge Golon, the second novel in the Angélique series. Inspired by the life of Suzanne de Rougé du Plessis-Bellière, known as the Marquise du Plessis-Bellière. The novel is set during the Franco-Dutch War (1672-1678).

Angélique's marriage to Jeoffrey de Peyrac is thought to be parallel to that of the daughter of Madame de Sévigné, Françoise-Marguerite de Sévigné to the Comte de Grignan.

There are some parallels between the career of Angélique's second husband, Philippe de Plessis du Bellière, and that of the historical Comte d'Artagnan, well-known through his fictionalized depiction in Alexandre Dumas's The Three Musketeers and its sequels.

In 1966, the book was adapted into a film titled Angelique and the King.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:04 UTC on Saturday, 8 January 2022.
