Artamène ou le Grand Cyrus (English: Artamène, or Cyrus the Great) is a French novel sequence, originally published in ten volumes in the 17th century. The title pages credit the work to Georges de Scudéry, but it is usually attributed to his sister Madeleine. At over 2,100,000 words,[1][citation needed] it is considered the longest novel ever published.
