Most Louis XIV books focus on Versailles, the king's mistresses, and the time when Louis had already established himself as the Sun King. This book covers ground not often tread, pre-Versailles, pre-Absolute Monarchy, pre-"l'etat, c'est moi."

A fulfilling read for francophiles and lovers of French historical fiction.
