Athenais de Montespan was born in 1640 and died in 1707. She met Louis XIV in the Autumn of 1666 and became his mistress the following year.  A great appreciator of luxury and the arts, she covered her walls with paintings and made her apartment "the centre of the wit" of the King’s court. She took under her protection famous writers such as Molière, La Fontaine and the poet Philippe Quinault.
