      Louis XIV: The Power and the Glory, has to be one of the best books on the subject of the Sun King I've read thus far. Well rounded and and historically accurate, the timeline of his life in concert with the creation of Versailles and the religious turbulence of the time was both comprehensive and satisfying in a way that left the reader satisfied rather than bored with the political details/5(5).   The first three chapters provide a rather comprehensive view of Louis XIV's court and why the particular focus of this book, the Affair of the Poisons, was as significant as it was--super informative and educational in general about that era of French history and that particular moment in long reign of Louis XIV/5(59).
