Weyman, Stanley: In King's Byways V1. 25-Sep 2010

Stanley John Weyman was an English novelist sometimes referred to as the "Prince of Romance". He was born at Ludlow, Shropshire, as the son of a solicitor. He was educated at Shrewsbury School, and at Christ Church, Oxford. He obtained his degree in modern history in 1877, and was called to the bar at the Inner Temple in 1881. Weyman had been practicing as a barrister for eight years until, in 1889, he wrote his first novel entitled The House of the Wolf (1890). This was followed by the novels which were to make his reputation: among them are historical romances set amidst the turmoil of 16th and 17th century France. His most famous works include: A Gentleman of France (1893), Under the Red Robe (1894), The Castle Inn (1898) and The Long Night (1903).

About the Book:
1902. The classic age of the swashbuckler might well be said to have begun with Weyman, who was ordained the greatest of the yellow '90s swashbuckling romancers. In Kings' Byways is a scarce collection of a dozen short stories of old France, the majority set around the year 1600 chronicling the struggles of the League and the Huguenots, Cardinal Mazarin, the Duke of Guise, Henry of Navarre and other historical figures. The book is divided into three sections. Part I. contains seven tales: Flore; Crillion's Stake; For the Cause; The King's Strategem; The House on the Wall; Hunt the Owler; and The Two Pages. Part II. includes: The Diary of a Statesman with three related episodes; Episode of the Fowl in the Pot; Episode of the Boxwood Fire; and Episode of the Snowfall. Part III., called King Terror set in the late 1700s, has two tales: A Daughter of the Gironde and In the Name of the Law.
