    1. Written in two volumes totaling just over 800 pages, The two Dianas in this tome are Diana de Poitiers, the long-time mistress of Henry II of France and their daughter Diana. On his eighteenth birthday Gabriel de Montgommery is told the truth about his birth, that he is the son of Count Jacques de Montgommery who disappeared mysteriously after his mistress Diana de Poitiers caught the eye of Henry, then Dauphine of France. Gabriel's childhood playmate Diana suddenly finds herself revealed as the [...]


    2. The Two Diana's is split into two volumes, each about 400 pages long. Apparently there are different translations out there and you have to be careful about what you read. I got a 1910 Collier and Sons edition and thought it read beautifully. As a bonus, it also included a few really great illustrations.This was my first Dumas since high school, when I read The Count of Monte Cristo and The Man in the Iron Mask. Though it's been a decade since I read those, I felt like the Two Diana's was remini [...]


    3. Cred că ceea ce mă face să iubesc cărțile lui Dumas este faptul că reuşeşte să introducă în poveştile sale, pe lângă toate intrigile, toate personajele perfide şi degradate, şi făpturi pure şi pline de curaj care iubesc cu toată inocența. Oferă o rază de lumină în acea lume.Nu sunt tocmai o iubitoare a istoriei, în sensul că nu aş citi cărți doar cu fapte mărețe şi nimic mai mult fiindcă, ei bine, m-aş plictisi. Dar cărțile de acest fel mă captivează şi de [...]


    4. 1st half of this book. Not his strongest. From what I've read online, he probably didn't write any of it. It was sketched by him but was written almost entirely by a collaborator.Set in the early years of Henri II's reign with a young Catherine de Medici as his queen. We see the conflict of Protestant and Catholic brewing but not yet boiling over. This tells the story of Diana de Poitiers (Henri II's mistress) and Diana de Castro, the King's illegitimate daughter who is in love with the son of t [...]


    5. The story of Diana de Poitiers (mistress of Henry II) and her daughter, Diana de Castro. In this first volume, the battles of Saint-Quentin and the first battle of Calais are reported. Dumas as an unique way to write tremendous dialogues. Looking forward to read Volume II. It is curious how this book is not so well known.
