Although it wasn’t exactly solitary confinement, Fouquet’s fate was considered by many at the time to be extremely inhumane and marked the first, and last, time a monarch ever used his executive powers to override the court in favor of a harsher sentence.
Fouquet’s wife was banished from France during this time and was not allowed to write her husband until 1672 and visited only one time in 1679.
Fouquet later died in Pignerol in 1680 to mysterious circumstances which some believe to be a poisoning at the hands of Louis XIV.
