Louise of Savoy was a politically active, assertive woman and a mother of a French king, but she had never been Queen of France herself and was not born into the monarchy. Louise was born to Phillip II of Savoy and his wife Marguerite de Bourbon. Louise’s father spent most of his life as the younger member of the ducal family and had lost his own small portion of land in Bresse, becoming known as the landless. Therefore the family lived by modest means despite being part of the nobility.
Marguerite Louise d’Orléans was born in July 1645 to Gaston, Duc d’Orléans and his second wife Marguerite of Lorraine. Her father was the brother of King Louis XIII of France, making Marguerite the granddaughter, niece and cousin of three French kings. Marguerite’s older half-sister was La Grande Mademoiselle; a high ranking heiress at the court of their cousin King Louis XIV of France.
Four centuries have passed since The Gunpowder Plot took place. It’s failure and the punishment of the thirteen conspirators is still celebrated in the United Kingdom on the 5th of November every year with bonfires and fireworks displays. It is common knowledge that Guy Fawkes and his companions planned to blow up the House of Lords and kill King James I. However, a key part of the story is often left out; the fact that the plan was to replace King James with his nine-year-old daughter Elizabeth.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
