Charles de Lescure, cousin of Henri and himself a wealthy landowner, lives in Clisson in Poitou and is Commander-in-chief of the Royalist party. His sister Marie is romantically involved with Henri. The principal invented character is Adolphe Denot, the anti-hero and turncoat, initially a friend to Henri and Charles. Handsome, vain, a show-off, he is in love with Henri’s sister Agatha, and when she rejects him, he turns against the cause and joins the Republicans. Trollope’s only historical novel, vaguely similar to Dumas in its range and intent.
