The Moorish of Moret (circa 1658-1730), the hidden Métis daughter of Louis XIV?
This exhibition brings together all the representations of this Métis nun withdrawn at the convent of Moret-sur-Loing near Fontainebleau Castle. She is one of the most intriguing figures of the 17th century. With the Iron Mask, with which she perhaps shares a kinship, it is one of the greatest mysteries of the history of France forged during the reign of Louis XIV. The Sainte-Geneviève Library in Paris and the Melun Museum have exceptionally lent the original portraits in their possessions. This exhibition takes stock of the testimonies and sources of French and European archives, some of them unpublished, on the convent of Moret and this mysterious nun.
