The Day of a King
Being an absolute monarch was exhausting
for Louis XIV. Looking at the immense palaces and stunning interiors only
give us a vague hint of what his daily routine must have been like. One of
the most comprehensive studies of lifestyle in the era was Lewis The
Splendid Century. Ive attempted to recreate the day of The King
by selecting a few choice sections from Lewis book. It is as close as
most of us will ever get to being King.
