1901. Part One of Three. With a special introduction by Leon Vallee. The memoirs of the Sun King, one of the most powerful rulers in Western history, written by the Duc de Saint-Simon who was at the very center of Louis XIV's court at Versailles. A genuinely pious and honest man, Saint-Simon's unblinking, eyewitness account of the intrigue, passion, jealousy, and political skullduggery that were part of Louis XIV's rule makes this a supreme work of art.
