Long live the King! The Sun King!
I recommend this book for everyone who wants to start their adventure with Louis XIV in a good style. Nine chapters lead us not only through the life of the great king, but also allow us to get to know the customs of his court and the greatest achievements of France of that time in art, architecture and fashion. All this is adorned with anecdotes and little-known stories. If you want to know what connects Louis XIV with the Eurovision Song Contest, what the Sun King did with the mysterious biological weapon and what was the fate of his heart, you should reach for this book. The authors are enchanted by their hero and the 17th century in general, and this affection is very contagious :). If you catch the same bug I recommend their blogs, which I am a faithful reader (addresses are on the cover of the book). The big advantage of the publication are illustrations, many of them really unique.
