Synopsis

He was amoral, cynical, ambitious, corrupt, but also brilliant and charming. An atypical and fascinating character, the Prince of Talleyrand, who died in 1838 at the age of 84, readily agreed that France's interests could coincide with his own.

Bishop of Autun and a womanizer, he was an outstanding diplomat, hence his incredible political longevity in these turbulent times.
