Abstract

Queen Christina's of Sweden three letters to countess Ebba Sparre, written 1655 - 1657, are analyzed in relation to two epistolary models, the "lettre galante" and "la lettre d'amour" as they were understood by aristocrats and feminists in France in the 17th Century. Christina wrote both accordingly the "galante" model" and to the "lettre d'amour" model, but specifically to the male type of the "lettre d'amour".
