The Mistress of Paris
- The 19th-Century Courtesan Who Built an Empire on a Secret
- By: Catherine Hewitt
- Narrated by: Sarah Nichols
- Length: 9 hrs and 41 mins
Comtesse Valtesse de la Bigne was painted by Édouard Manet and inspired Émile Zola, who immortalized her in his scandalous novel Nana. Her rumored affairs with Napoleon III and the future King Edward VII kept gossip columns full. But her glamorous existence hid a dark secret: She was no comtesse. She was born into abject poverty, raised on a squalid backstreet among the dregs of Parisian society. Yet she transformed herself into an enchantress.
