A fascinating look into the life of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Students covering this famous French King will love to see the splendor of living in the Palace of Versailles. It was most definitely great to be royalty.

This book is all about the King. It describes what he does each and everyday, where he lives, what he looks like, and how he acts. This book describes hour by hour what the King does and all that is involved in each and every day of his life.

I really enjoyed this book. I think it is a very well written book and I also think that children would indeed enjoy reading it and learning about this topic. This book makes reading about this certain subject and topic interesting and makes it fun to learn

This book takes a fascinating look at the daily life of Louis XIV, King of France. He apparently really liked ceremonies, pomp and circumstance.

Contains gems such as:
"The Royal Chair-Carriers were honored to empty the royal chamber pot."
"Although it didn't show, doctors would discover, after his death, that Louis's stomach was twice the size of an ordinary one."
