This teaser comes from page 44:
The beauty of this king was his young and handsome fearlessness, his walking among his people, or among his soldiers on a battlefield, as the incarnation of France, which he was. The queen mother had used it, displayed him like an icon to the people in those past, perilous days of treachery and war, hoping the sight of him, his innocence, his young, grave, dignified purity, would rally support. By God, it oughtn't be tampered with, that innocence, and yet it would be. Time would do that, if nothing else.
Please note that this teaser comes from an ARC version and so may be different in the final version.
