Wealth, Women, Death
Louis the 14th, the sun king. Here is the opening door to the wealth of the french king who did as he pleased and was pleased in what he did !!
The life of spendor, and of self, where you as king could well said what Mel Brooke said"It's good to be the king" ! It was of course not "good to be poor"
This is a well written book that is both candid and explantive in the areas covered. Again wealth beyond measure, in a time of need and frustration.
I heartily recommend this book as a delightful read and a true experience to be enjoyed !!

What a Joy to share an exceptionally well researched journey into the past reiterating how influential Louis XIV still is on our modern world and how the period even with its oppression encouraged creative solutions to daily problems, which set the stage for our modern times!
