Summary
This program explores the flamboyant Baroque court of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Louis created the Palace of Versailles so that he could surround himself with aristocrats, artists, interior designers, gardeners, wigmakers, chefs, and musicians. Hordes of ambitious courtiers scrambled to get close to the king, but it was the unseemly activities in the royal bedchamber that reflected the quickest path to power.
