The Huguenot: A Tale of the French Protestants by George Payne Rainsford James (1799 - 1860).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-huguenot-a-tale-of-the-french-protestants-by-george-payne-rainsford-james/

The time of French king Louis XIV was a time of religious conflict. His father, Louis XIII had tried to suppress the teachings and followers of Calvin but was thwarted by his ministers. The son took a different path. The king was Catholic, and although he was tolerant of others, some in his government were less so, and persecuted the Protestant Huguenots. This is the story of Albert, Count of Morseiul as he treads the tightrope of being a Huguenot landowner and loyal subject and friend of the king. ( )

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Ch. 1 PL OK!

A little more introduction than I care for, but I'm looking forward to this once the 'action' begins.

Yes, he was a historian and starts his books by setting the historical context. Some are more fact-based and have real people, others not so much! Even the more historically accurate stories, he takes a minor character or event so there is a lot of imagination and supposition involved.

Was that the description of Riquet? I thought that was particularly enjoyable and I could just picture him.
