Louis XIV is one of history’s most notorious rulers. Ruling for three quarters of a century, the King of France had the longest reign in European history, and the effects of his rule would create the conditions that would lead to the French Revolution. Written by an authority on 17th century Europe, Pierre Goubert not only outlines the life the famous “Sun King." but the millions of subjects under his rule, and the effects his choices had on the them.

From the Back Cover:

Between the scholars and the general public exists a real and ever-widening gulf. This book is an attempt to bridge that gulf. Many accepted beliefs about Louis XIV's reign, if not about the king himself, are ripe for reappraisal.

About the Author:

Pierre Goubert (1915–2012), renowned for his knowledge of seventeenth-century history and culture, was a member of a group of historians known as the Annales School. His works include Louis XIV and Twenty Million Frenchmen, The Course of French History, and The French Peasantry in the 17th Century.
