Situe aux frontieres linguistique et politique entre la France et le Saint-Empire, l'etat tampon de la Lorraine a maintenu une neutralite precaire depuis la defaite de Charles le temeraire en 1477 jusqu'a la Guerre de Trente Ans. Entravee par le cardinal de Richelieu pendant les annees 1630, l'autonomie politique de la Lorraine ne fut perdue qu'un siecle plus tard et le dernier duc de Lorraine se refugia chez les Habsbourg. A Bewitched Duchy est la premiere histoire de Lorraine en langue anglaise.
