Este libro debería ser considerado el desenlace de esta saga. Todos los personajes que son introducidos en El Rey de Hierro mueren a lo largo de los títulos de esta serie, y en especial, este narra el desenlace de Roberto III de Artois, quien, con su intervención a lo largo de la saga, provoca el embrollo dinástico que llevó a la Guerra de los Cien años. Harto recomendable si les gusta la historia medieval.

No se que mas decir de esta magnifica saga! me encanta! me encanta la historia, como esta narrada! me duele terminarla.
Carlos Serrano Nouaille
Un colofón glorioso para una gran saga. Los Reyes Malditos de Maurice Druon pueden ser la obra definitiva sobre el final de la dinastía de los Capetos y los inicios de la Guerra de los Cien Años. Por sus páginas pasan templarios, brujas, caballeros corteses al estilo artúrico y nobles maquiavélicos ávidos de poder. Empieza con un buen ritmo, pero el tercer y cuarto libro frenan un poco la acción. Resulta que sólo estaban preparándose las piezas en el tablero para que en el sexto todo termine con ...more

Y la saga sigue y no se pierde el interés. Cómo Druon logra manternos enganchados después de 6 tomos, es una maravilla. En este libro le decimos adiós a dos de los personajes más increíbles de la historia: Roberto y Mahaut. Ambos ambiciosos, poderosos, imbatibles, y que mueren víctimas de sus mismas maquinaciones, una envenenada por la asesina que ella entrenó, y el otro herido en la guerra que él ayudó a crear. Mientras tanto, la historia de Europa se escribe, ahora a ambos lados del Canal de l ...more

Este sexto libro bien puede ser el último de la serie, ya que concluyen muchos de los relatos que iniciaron en el primer libro. La historia concluye con la muerte de Roberto de Artois en una batalla en suelo francés en la que fue herido de manera fortuita.

El libro narra principalmente el reinado de Felipe de Valois, primer rey de la dinastía Valois luego de que no hubo nieto de Felipe el Hermoso que continuara la línea sucesoria.

Roberto alza a su primo Felipe para la regencia y luego para el rei

I have an English translation of this one (from a recycled books place). A wonderful storyteller, very well researched. Gripping, often funny and spinechilling by turns, paints a flesh and blood picture of the middle ages. characters jump off the page and are hard to forget! More please...am now hunting for the rest of the books in the Accursed Kings series.
Monica
Roberto de Artois es el gran protagonista de esta serie tal y como lo dice el autor.

Para mí esta saga termina aquí, no sólo porque la descendencia de Felipe el Hermoso termina de desparecer, si no por el párrafo final del autor.

La serie ha estado increíble. La realidad, nuevamente, ha sobrepasado la ficción.
David
For those not familiar with these books, this series of historical fiction about France in the early 1300s was the inspiration for many of the plot lines in A Song Of Ice And Fire, the fictional book series starting with A Game Of Thrones.

You'd think that by the 6th book in the series I'd have the characters figured out. Yes, I know it's historical fiction, so the author has no choice in the names of the major characters. That said, it is frustrating that just about every important female charac

Jaime Ibarra
El mejor libro de la saga hasta el momento. Que artista Druon en poder relatar hechos tan confusos y antiguos, sin perder la tensión y el enigma de lo que pasará a continuación. Maestrazo!
Laure D
On ne voit pas souvent un auteur traumatisé par la mort de son protagoniste. Néanmoins Druon n'hésite pas à nous faire partager sa déception et sa tristesse, pointant du doigt l'histoire qui lui a retiré trop tôt son géant écarlate.
Ce sixième tome est le chant du cygne d'Artois qui, à vouloir aller plus haut, n'a que mieux chuté. C'est la marche inexorable de la France vers un conflit que le lecteur sait inévitable. C'est l'un des plus beaux et grandioses volume de la série.

An amazing read for those who adore rich historical pieces and wish to fully acquaint (or perhaps form an imaginary alliance) with figures from history. Mr. Druon takes this reader on a brilliant venture every time I open another novel in this addicting saga and The Lily and the Lion was my latest feast. Being the sixth in The Accursed Kings series it was bittersweet to realize as I finished this splendid work that only one more novel remains. But as the saying goes "all good things must come to ...more

Druon appears to tie up the series in this novel, full of intrigue and drama, though he did pen a seventh and last one years later. Charles IV lays dying in France, the last of the sons of Philip the Fair, and therefore perhaps the last to be cursed by the Templars. Strong negotiations amongst the Council chooses Philippe of Valois, a cousin, to assume the role of King of France. Philippe VI begins planning his reign and hopes to rid himself of familial enemies and those who may see his selectio ...more

Takes us full circle, we started way back with Robert of Artois plotting with the Queen of England against her sisters in law which indirectly led to the Hundred Years War. The Lily and the The Lion ends the Robert of Artois stricken from his homeland and unable to ever win back his territory. In this installment Robert is exiled and is shown to be the direct spark to the start of The Hundred Years War by planting the seeds in King Edward III of England's mind that he is the legitimate King of F ...more

Con la muerte de Carlos IV se extingue la dinastía de los Capetos, haciéndose realidad la Maldición del templario. Finalmente la Corona se posa en la cabeza de quien mas la había deseado Carlos de Valois, y ahora Roberto de Artois, el que más lucho para que esto se hiciera realidad, espera que el rey le pague sus enormes servicios de tantos años. Otra vez Maurice Druon nos deleita con una impresionante novela que nos sacara una que otra lagrimilla por los personajes que nos dejan.
Holly Mason
I have to say this book really got interesting. I had started to think there was no real need to read these books but I am glad I kept going with them. It does get hard to read when there is a quick note about the authors favourite character having to die. If you have read only one book and left it there you will be sorry to not read this one.
Sebastien
J'ai bien aimé, plus que le précédent. Édouard III est un personnage vraiment intéressant une fois qu'il prend le pouvoir en exécutant Mortimer et en enfermant Isabelle, c'est dommage qu'une longue partie du livre soit perdue à expliquer le plus ou moins amour qui s'installe entre Robert d'Artois et Béatrice d'Hirson. Par contre dommage que le cycle termine à peu près à la mort de Robert et que les exploits des premiers princes anglais ne soient pas raconté dans les mêmes styles. Ç'aurait été bi ...more
Fabien
Toujours aussi addictogène, le 6ème tome de la sage de Maurice Druon marque une transition importante : la lignée directe des Capétiens se termine et bien sûr la guerre de succession bat son plein, surtout si Édouard III d'Angleterre vient y mettre son grain de sel. Une manœuvre habile d'un homme seul et voila les deux pays en guerre pour cent ans. Le "lis et le lion" c'est aussi une plongée dans la chevalerie de parade, celle qui joute, ainsi que dans le monde des faussaires ou des messes inver ...more

'The Lily and the Lion' by Maurice Druon (6/7).
The house of Capet falls amid the escalating rivalry between Robert and Mahaut over Artois, setting the stage for the Valois Kings and the Hundred Years War with England. Great series!
Jamie Davies
Again I enjoyed this book, but it wasn't as good as the first few, mostly becasue it focused less on the French court, but the storyline was still good. P.s. like before I did read the English version but only the spanish is on Goodreads
Dee Moore
I have been constantly amazed. As I've read these books I've grappled with the idea of people being this evil, this cruel and this self absorbed. History really is a wealth of depravity. Since the English translation of the final book does not come out until January 2015, I read two pages a day hoping to drag the story out. Unfortunately, I couldn't contain myself and finally finished the book. Now I must wait and wait again to dive into the pit of human avarice and greed that was the French Med ...more

Hay una parte de pleitos mas o menos y otra mejor donde da inicio la guerra de los 100 años.
Muy liviano con lo bueno y lo malo que eso implica.

So many characters - think you need to start at the first book and know French/English history
Mark Ellis
I cannot really add to the words of my reviews of the earlier volumes of this astonishingly good historical series. Brilliantly researched, recreated and populated with wonderfully realised characters. I envy anyone who has yet to read this magisterial medieval saga!
Jess Penhallow
Oh the woes of an historical fiction author. Druon seemed genuinely annoyed when history compelled him to kill a character he obviously enjoyed writing.

The last few books in this series lost my interest at times but this is great and up with the first few in terms of quality. There is one book left in the series and I'm not sure where it will go from here with the timeframe jumping so many years and majority of the characters dead but I am defintely intrigued.

Unfortunately I have to wait for a

A great read where the sickest but most fascinating of characters meets his fate, but, to be honest how different history would have been had not his aunt respected her father's wishes!!!
