In March 1679, an astrologer, tarot-card reader, potion-maker, and midwife named Catherine Monvoisin, also known as La Voisin, was arrested on charges of sorcery and poisoning. Her arrest led to the accusation and arrest of many of the most prominent women of Louis XIV's court on similar charges. This is the story of the scandal told through a new set of Tarot cards.
