Requested move[edit]

current title is missing a comma, strange... Gryffindor 17:08, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

How so? Titles of French nobility are clearly allowed to be in French as well. Check out the Category:French nobility. Gryffindor 21:26, 30 August 2006 (UTC)

Stevenmitchell 08:47, 26 February 2006 (UTC) What caused her death at the age of 27?

I believe she died of Typhoid. But why is she called Courtesan? She could be called prostitute, but as she, in that case, only sold herself to one man, the title of courtesan wouldn't really be correct, i think.--Aciram 16:14, 12 April 2007 (UTC)


Politicall role[edit]

The article say her political role was exageratetd because she used her politicall influence from behind the scene. That makes no sence. She had influence over politics no matter if she used it oppenly or not. --85.226.235.206 (talk) 13:57, 10 January 2008 (UTC)

Poisoned[edit]

Hi!

I've read Princess Michael's "Cupid and the King" 2005 re-issue, and came across the 2nd chapter dedicated to Marquise de Pompadour. I've read that Madame de Mailly the Duchesse de Chateauroux died just as Louis XV recovered from his strange illness at Metz.

To quote from the book:

After that, it was the end of the de Mailly sisters' 10-year long reign over Louis XV.

But when I got to the conflict between Madame de Pompadour & Maurepas regarding the Poisonnades, I saw this; quoting:

...the result of his banishment.

So, aren't there any rumors at the least, that Marie Anne died due to poisoning? Heran et Sang'gres (talk) 08:38, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
