Madame de Pompadour (1721-1764), mistress of Louis XV

The lovely Jean Fish.... enjoyed 20 years as King Louis 15th's
mistress..... her charm and joie de vivre a great attraction to
the King who had a low boredom threshold and found the formal duties of Kingship an onerous task.
Mme de Pompadour was a talented actress and singer as she proved in the many plays and entertainments she starred in at the Royal theatre inside the Palace of Versailles.
Her talents did nt end there... she was a talented artist too as some of her surviving works prove.

Following her death in 1764 ,Madame de Pompadour was buried beside her mother and daughter at the now lost Couvent des Capucines in Paris.The Convent and chapel were desecrated in 1793 and later pulled down.
