In The War of the Women the author, Alexandre Dumas, deals with the later phases of the war of the Fronde. The imprisonment of the Prince de Comde and his relatives by Mazarin, the revolt incited at Bordeaux by his wife, and the various cabals and dissensions consequent on these acts - events occurred in 1650, during the regency of Anne of Austria - form the historical part; while a romance of love and adventure is interwoven and several fictitious or semi-fictitious characters are introduced.
