On May 6, 1682, Louis XIV of France moves his court to the Palace of Versailles. This completely upends the political expectations and power balance amongst the French nobility. Louis XIV, also often referred to as the Sun King, forced all nobility to live alongside him and bend their daily lives around his own. Love and Louis XIV: The Women in the Life of the Sun King by Antonia Fraser explores the impact of the many intimate relationships he had with the women of his life and how they molded his life and power.
