The King . . . the omnipotent King, strolling in his festive gardens. The elms glittering with frost like fairy trees.
The plumed courtiers following him from grove to grove. The marble statues cloaked with snow.
At the end of one walk the golden figures of Ceres and Flora and Pomona mirrored in the clear ice of a fountain.
The King with his walking stick in his gloved hand, the hand of a young man, yet capable of directing destiny,
controlling life and death.

Angelique and the King, Pan 1962

With How to show the gardens of Versailles in 1704, Louis XIV wrote not just a guide, but a true itinerary through the gardens of the Palace of Versailles.

There are seven versions dating from between 1689 and 1705, conserved in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France and the Palace of Versailles. Some were written in the king’s own hand, others by one of his secretaries and corrected by the sovereign.
