The beautiful face of Madame de Pompadour

E’ can condense life of Madame de Pompadour in just 3 minutes?

Surfing the net I came across the interesting video found at the bottom of the page.

Solo three minutes, precisely, to tell the life of Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, better known as Madame de Pompadour.

The Louis XV's mistress It is perhaps the most famous lover of History.

The Pompadour was certainly an ambitious woman and not always free from the art of the intrigue that made the Palace of Versailles a den of snakes, but it was not just that.

Undoubtedly it was a gift intelligence out of the ordinary, which allowed her not only to get to the top, but also to influence, almost always positive, an entire era.

Cultured and brilliant, with his wise counsel Madame de Pompadour was the real architect of some of the most sensible decisions of fickle sovereign transalpine.

And in fact he never considered not only a pleasant lover, but also his most trusted friend and confidant, one of the very few people at court on which he could really count.

not noble (The Marquis was a “present” Louis XV) and in poor health since childhood, the Pompadour died just 43 years consumed by those lung problems that has always plagued.

The video (adapted from youtube.com) which as mentioned only lasts 3 minutes, it is English language, but also thanks to words that appear over video, it is quite easy to understand even for those unfamiliar with this language.
