Background: Youngest child of a minor lord in southeast France, Amandine was born at the family stronghold, Maison des Consuls. Her sister married the lord of Castres and John, heir to Vitteaux, is betrothed to Constance, sister of the Count of Foix-Bearn. Amandine's father petitioned the King for a position in the household of Isabelle, Princess of France, but the request was immediately denied. Amandine knew that she had only her future sister-in-law to blame. Due to misconduct at court she was dismissed from the Princesses service in shame.
It was through a cousin that Amandine was introduced to the Countess of Artois and Burgundy who was generous in accepting the girl as her lady-in-waiting.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. - Charles Caleb Colton
