I Am A Tulip

Inspired by the life of duc de Mazarin, a man I read about at the end of Sex with Kings (more about this gorgeous book later!).

Mazarin was mentally unstable and having a chronically unfaithful wife did not help; near the end of his life, he stood in the middle of his garden and asked his servants to water him as he decided he was a tulip.
