|Comtesse de Verrue|
Now that she was away from Turin Jeanne's father and the Abbe de Verrue agreed that she should stay there in the hope that Monsieur de Savoie would move on. However, all was not as it seemed. As it would happen the Abbe de Verrue was himself deeply in love with the far younger Comtesse de Verrue and used her stay at Bourbon to make advances of his own. Jeanne was far from interested causing the Abbe to become bitter - he would from then on take every advantage of slighting Jeanne. Eventually, the Comtesse de Verrue had had enough and she finally gave in to Monsieur de Savoie whom she had managed to keep in touch with. As for the Monsieur himself he was thrilled to finally find himself the lover of the woman he had adored for years. The Verrues were far from sharing his point of views. Back in Turin the Comtesse became the most powerful and influential woman at the Court of Savoy now that she held the complete confidence of Monsieur de Savoie himself. Her new position quickly went to her head and she became reviled for her haughtiness. During their time together the Comtesse gave birth to two children (a boy and a girl) who were both recognized as Monsieur's offspring.
|Monsieur de Savoie|
Reaching out to her brother the Chevalier de Luynes they arranged to take advantage of Monsieur de Savoie's upcoming trip to Chambery. While he was away the Comtesse was hastily removed and with her brother's aid she made it to Paris leaving both her children behind; here she sat up a salon. This was the end of the turbulent affair of the Comtesse de Verrue and Monsieur de Savoie.
