Character Analysis

The wife of King Louis's younger brother, Henrietta is a lovely and passionate woman who possesses a degree of political acumen, as is evidenced by the Epilogue of the novel, where she negotiates with the King. Before The Man in the Iron Mask opens, she engages in a flirtation with the King and is quite upset when he starts fancying Louise de la Valliere instead.
