The Sun King, Paperback


This title comes with an introduction by Stella Tillyard.

During his reign Louis XIV was the most powerful king in Europe.

He presided over a golden age of military and artistic achievement in France, and deployed his charm and talents for spin and intrigue to hold his court and country within his absolute control.

The Sun King's universe centred on Versailles, a glittering palace from where Louis conducted his government and complex love affairs.

Nancy Mitford describes the daily life of this splendid court in sumptuous detail, recreating the past in vivid colour.
