♦ Description : “In an evocation filled with strong colors and furious sounds, Philippe de Villiers revives Clovis and gives him the floor. The founding king reveals the most intimate episodes, the most secret, of his childhoods, his loves, his rides. This book illuminates a new day the mystery of his conversion, restores the truth about the date of his baptism and thus renews the symbolic perspective of our entire past, our destiny. Throughout a breathless narrative, sometimes emerge troubling connections between the tribulations of the world of Clovis and the commotions of our time: the comings and goings of wandering peoples, barbarians, invasions, evanescent pride, civilizations which are sinking … A spectacular, exciting, unexpected restitution, which makes us relive as ever the Merovingian times and the origins of France.”

Author Biography


“Philippe de Villiers”

“Fought often, beaten sometimes, never shot”: the life of François-Athanase Charette de la Contrie is the image of his motto. Vendeen like him, Philippe de Villiers has for a long time had a special attachment for this hero whose destiny echoes his own family history. To the point of identifying with him and resuscitating, in the form of imaginary memories, the adventurous life of this man as seductive as he is intrepid, faithful towards all against a cause: “Fatherland, Faith, King”. From his brilliant career in the Royal Navy, integrated at the age of fourteen, to this day in 1793 where, at the head of a troupe of peasants of the Breton Marsh, Charette goes to the assault of the Republic, Philippe de Villiers resuscitates the flamboyant epic of a man whose audacity and courage, personality singularly free and modern, have not finished fascinating.”
