Can you grow a black tulip? Cornelius van Baerle entered Haarlem’s gardening competition hoping for an opportunity to win the ƒ100,000 prize. He ended the competition in the Loevestein prison.

Regal and dazzlingly beautiful, Mary was often misunderstood yet revered for the mystery of her life. Succumbing to the irresistible impulses of passion, she gambled away her throne for love. Unbelievable acts of abduction, rape and even murder were performed at her behest; she stopped at nothing. Ultimately, the deadly game of power she played…
Beginning with the 1672 lynching of the Dutch Grand Pensionary Johan de Witt and his brother Cornelius, “The Black Tulip” is gripping fiction rooted in historical fact. Dumas gradually allows his readers glimpses into the connections between his characters and the time period he chose to set them in, all while spinning a tale dramatic enough to stand on its own.
Alexandre Dumas is the French 19th century author responsible for such literary classics as “The Three Musketeers,” “The Count of Monte Cristo”, and dozens of novels, plays, and non-fiction essays that contributed to the Romanticist movement. Several of his novels are now regarded as required reading for lovers of literature.
