The topic was the Italian Renaissance, and the subject was Catherina Sforza. In spite of floundering on the second-to-last question, the next day she was summoned by Grald Gauthier, director of the Press Agency at Opra Mundi. Impressed by her historical knowledge, he asked her if she could write a historical novel in the same style as the Angelique series, (by Anne Golon) , which Opra Mundi had published with great success in 1956. Benzoni agreed, already having an idea inspired by the legend of the Golden Fleece, and began to write the adventures of a golden-haired beauty during the Hundred Years' War. Catherine was released in 1962 as a cliffhanger in the daily newspaper France-Soir as Il suffit d'un amour (One Love is Enough). In 1963 newspaper Le Figaro wrote: before the book was even published it beats all records: it is already sold to ten different countries. France-Soir confirmed: it has an unprecedented destiny in the history of publishing... On 10 June 1964 Le Provenal wrote: A heroine who takes place alongside Scarlett O'Hara and The Marquise of the Angels (Anglique) ." (from Wikipedia)
