French Writer Anne Golon, Creator of Angelique Novels, Dies at 95

PARIS Ė French novelist Anne Golon, known all over the world for her popular stories about a heroine named Angelique, has died at the age of 95 in Versailles, west of Paris, her family announced Sunday.

The writer died on Friday of peritonitis, according to her daughter Nadine Goloubinoff, as cited by local media.

Golon was famous for the Angelique series, set in Louis XIVís 17th century France, which she wrote along with her husband Serge, who passed away in 1972.

The books enjoyed great success in a number of countries throughout the 1960s, with millions of copies sold.

Golon was born as Simone Changeux in 1921 in the coastal city of Toulon, southeastern France, but later adopted Anne Golon as her pen name.

In 1956, the first Angelique story was published in Germany, and 13 more books followed until 1985.

The series also inspired the creation of five movies by French director Bernard Borderie, with actress Michele Mercier playing the lead role, Angelique.

In the 1990s, Golon filed a lawsuit against publisher Hachette over unpaid royalties, and eventually won.
