Maurice Druon

Maurice Druon (1918–2009) was awarded the Prix Goncourt at thirty and entered the Académie française in 1966. He served as Culture Minister from 1972 to 1974 and helped translate Anna Marly's Chant des Partisans, the anthem of the World War II French Resistance. As a French novelist, his best-known works are Le Roi de fer (The Iron King); La Reine étranglée (The Strangled Queen); and Quand un Roi perd la France (When a King Loses France). Tistou (1957) stands as the unexpected flower he cultivated just for children.
