I tried reading it at my desk, but was inexorably drawn to the couch, no doubt by the power of suggestion. This is, after all, a book filled with incidents that take place in the grand bedchambers and appartements des bains of royal palaces like Saint-Germain and Versailles: the offices, in effect, of the Sun King, his wives one official, the other less so and mistresses. Royal births were, by tradition, public events, but this one required all the more assurance that the child was no last-minute substitute — of boy for girl, or live infant for stillborn. A male heir was imperative since France did not permit female descendants to serve as monarchs. Fate obliged in the person of Louis XIV, a child so physically precocious that he was born with two teeth quite an inconvenience, Fraser speculates, for his wet-nurses. And he used his royal authority to make titled nobles of the children they conceived on the wrong side of the sheets. Through much of his reign, Louis managed to spend almost every night with his wife with whom he dutifully conceived potential heirs to the throne , devote several hours to dalliances with his courtesan of the moment and still lead the nation, without the advice of a chief minister.

History books in English of the kings of France. In compiling that site the paucity of good biographical accounts for French kings in the English language became apparent. The pages which follow attempt to construct an illustrated bibliography of biographies of French kings in the style of the English Monarchs survey. Many of these kings have no biographer in English and most of these are from the early point in the timeline. Researching the books on French kings was not as grim a task as it first looked. However, for sixteen kings English language biographies were found, and for some kings more than one. This bibliography is made with English language speakers in mind.
