This novel is called “Petticoat Rule” because during the 1740s in France there were notable females influencing their male contemporaries. Lydie d'Aumont, who is the main focus of this fiction based on fact, is daughter of the French prime minister. Therefore, whoever marries her will gain power, as the prime minister is easily persuaded by his daughter to do what she wants.

Emmuska Orczy is best known for her work the Scarlet Pimpernel.
