François 1er, roi de chimères (BIOGRAPHIES, ME) (French - download pdf or read online

By Franck Ferrand

Au XXIe siècle, François Ier apparaît comme le père de los angeles Renaissance française, l’ami de Léonard de Vinci, le bâtisseur de Chambord et de Fontainebleau, le vainqueur de Marignan, l’allié de Soliman contre l’ennemi juré du royaume, Charles Quint. Mais ces qualities saillants ne sont-ils pas l’arbre qui cache une forêt bien plus complexe ?
Dans cet essai biographique d’un style nouveau, Franck Ferrand dépasse l’image d’Épinal et nous dépeint ce roi sous les characteristics d’un personnage moins brillant qu’on ne le prétend. vehicle le géant débonnaire a connu des triomphes mais aussi des défaites – et ce jusqu’à l. a. captivité. François Ier, héros tourmenté, subit los angeles trahison de son cousin, adora sa soeur et détesta son héritier, frôla plusieurs fois l. a. mort, multiplia les conquêtes amoureuses, vit mourir ses fils aimés… Un homme qui vécut entre une jeunesse de rêve et une vieillesse de cauchemar, torturé par une maladie atroce.
L’historien va plus loin : et si François Ier n’avait pas été un si bon roi ? Louis XII disait de son successeur : « Ce gros garçon gâtera tout. » L’histoire, pour peu qu’on los angeles regarde objectivement, semble lui avoir donné raison. Longtemps dominé par sa mère, manipulé par sa maîtresse, François se laissa aveugler par son amour de l’Italie et par sa haine de l’Empereur. Jouet des factions, facile à duper, le soi-disant « restaurateur des Lettres » instaura l. a. censure et lutta contre l’imprimerie ; il fi nit même par allumer les bûchers d’où partiront les guerres de faith ! Sous une plume érudite et alerte, voici un portrait contrasté, doublé d’une examine implacable.
