About Claude de Vin

Claude de Vin des Œillets, known as Mademoiselle des Œillets, (Provence 1637 – Paris, May 1687), was a mistress of Louis XIV of France and the companion of the official royal mistress and favourite Madame de Montespan. She was known for her involvement in the famous Affair of the Poisons (1679–1680).

Daughter of Nicolas de Vin and Louise Faviot, she became the trusted companion of Montespan. She had a child by the king, Louise de Maisonblanche (1676–1718). During the Affair of the Poisons , she was said to have made more than fifty visits to the poisoners. she was pointed out as the replacement of Montespan in the black masses. She was protected from any persecution by the monarch and Colbert, but the affair implicated Montespan and ruined the latter's relationship with the king. Œillets retired from court in 1678 to a comfortable life in her Paris residence and country estate.
