This is the fifth of six volumes of Voltaire’s Siècle de Louis XIV to be published by the Voltaire Foundation, in collaboration with the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. The reign of Louis XIV (the Sun King) defined the era of the ‘Grand siècle’ and saw France rise to become the dominant player on the European stage. Voltaire’s seminal work is both a milestone in his career as a historian-philosopher and a monument of eighteenth-century historiography.
