Excerpt from Madame: A Life of Henrietta, Daughter of Charles I, and Duchess of Orleans Henrietta, Duchess of Orleans, is so interesting and attractive a figure in the history of the seventeenth century, and forms so important a link between Charles II. and Louis XIV., that it is strange to find how little has been written about her in our own time and country. All we have are a few chapters in Mrs Everett-Green's Lives of English Princesses, and in Miss Strickland's Lives of the Four Last Stuart Princesses. Of these two accounts, the former is by far the fullest and most accurate. But the limits of her work naturally prevented Mrs Green from doing justice to her subject, and there are many notable omissions in her history of Madame Henriette. She does not give any of the letters which have been published in Daniel de Cosnac's Memoirs, nor had she access to that portion of Charles II.'s correspondence which is preserved in the French Archives. A few fragments of these letters, addressed by this monarch to his sister between 1660 and 1669, were printed by Sir John Dalrymple in his Memoirs of the Reign of Charles II., and by Mignet in his Negotiations relatives a la Succession d'Espagne.
