Summary expansion
In June 1744, the king left Versailles for the front in order to take personal command of his armies fighting in the War of the Austrian Succession. This otherwise popular move was marred by the king's indiscreet decision to bring along Marie Anne de Mailly, whom he had ennobled as the duchess of Châteauroux. Pamphlets against the king's mistresses became widely published and read at an increasing rate
