Biographical notes:

Roger de Rabutin, comte de Bussy, (1618-1693) was a French courtier and Army officer well-known for composing satirical and libelous songs. He composed the Histoire Amoureuse des Gaules in 1660 during a banishment from court. The erotic fiction circulated widely in manuscript, and angered Louis XIV, who sent de Bussy to the Bastille for a year and then exiled him to his estates in Burgundy, where he died in 1693.
