About Mademoiselle de la Valliere:

Françoise Louise de la Vallière was secretly in love with King Louis XIV, who made her one of his favourites. She bore him four children in the utmost secrecy. She crowded her bed with tuberoses to quell the queen's suspicions “...by inhaling these scents that were so dangerous to her condition, she thought she was risking her life, but she hoped to save her honour”... (excerpted from "La Duchesse de Lavallière" by Stéphanie Félicité de Genlis). Abandoned for Athénaïs de Montespan who took her place in the king's heart, she retired to Carmel and became “Sister Louise of Mercy”.
