From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The maîtresse-en-titre (French: [mɛtʁɛs ɑ̃ titʁ]) was the chief Royal mistress of the king of France.[1] The title came into use during the reign of Henry IV and continued through the reign of Louis XV. It was a semi-official position which came with its own apartments.[2] In contrast, the title petite maîtresse was the title of a mistress who was not officially acknowledged.

From the reign of Louis XIV, the term has been applied, both in translation ("official mistress") and in the original French, to refer to the main mistress of any monarch or prominent man when his relationship with her is not clandestine, e.g. Vibeke Kruse, Nell Gwynn, Jeanne Baptiste d'Albert de Luynes, Lola Montez, Magda Lupescu.
