Philip the Fair rules his kingdom with an iron fist but cannot control his own family, while a sentence he hands down that Grand Master Jacques de Molay be burned at the stake draws upon him a curse that could destroy his dynasty.
Maurice Druon was a French resistance hero, a Knight of the British Empire and a holder of the Grand Croix de la Legion d'Honneur.

A passionate Anglophile, he was a great expert on all things English, including its medieval history, which provides great inspiration for the series. His many and diverse fans include George RR Martin, Nicolas Sarkozy and Vladimir Putin.
