The Last Days Of Louis XIV – August 20, 1715


Louis XIV slept better. He only drank three times during the night. The King heard mass in bed, being not able to leave it, due to a feeling of weakness, and saw the ambassadors as he ate dinner. Today, he did not go to Madame de Maintenon’s rooms, but asked her to come to his. The King’s leg aches a little less and he seems very composed as he chats with Madame de Maintenon, Madame de Caylus and the Marquise de Dangeau for a considerable time in his chamber.
