    Excerpt from The Fronde: The Stanhope Essay, 1905

    The tragi-comedy of the Fronde, still six years distant, has already been partly explained. Its tragedy is in the people; the prelude of its comedy is soon to be played in the Court. With Anne's regency all the melancholy severity of the old order seemed gone, and the courtiers felt themselves on holiday. The happy opening of her reign, the return of the exiles, the release of the prisoners, the victory of Rocroy by the young Duke of Enghien which had shatteredthe power of the infantry of Spain and crowned the young king, not yet five years old, with laurels in his cradle, the affection of her people for a Queen who had suffered, the goodwill of her Parliament for a Regent who promised every day to conduct herself by its counsels, the gaiety of a court which could not exhaust her generosity, all conspired to blind the eyes of Paris to what was the real event. Anne's appearance and habits at this time are well known.1 She was now forty-two and still good looking, with something of Austria in her lips and too broad a nose to be quite handsome; was greatly admired for the beauty of her hair and the whiteness of her hands; but, in the Spanish fashion, rouged too much. In her habits she was the most regular person in the world.
