The Last Days Of Louis XIV – September 5, 1715

It is Louis XIV’s birthday. He would have turned seventy-seven today. His coffin of oak is still on display in the Royal Apartment and will be so for a few more days, before it travels to Saint Denis.

The Royal Apartments have been transformed into a place of mourning. The walls and floors are covered. People come and go to catch a glimpse of the Sun King’s coffin.
