Marie de Hautefort
Marie de Hautefort (1616 - 1691), was a French noble and lady-in-waiting, the royal favorite of king Louis XIII of France. From 1630 until 1639, she was the trusted friend and confidante of Louis XIII and acted as his political adviser, but they did not have a sexual relationship and she was thereby a favorite rather than a royal mistress.
