Read an Excerpt

Much has changed since Louis XIV (1643-1715), Louis XV (1715-74) and Louis XVI (1774-93) unabashedly drenched the palace of Versailles in gilded excess, provoking a revolution that brought the monarchy tumbling down and prompted habitués of all economic levels-poor, middle class and rich-aspiring for better lives to famously proclaim "liberté, égalité, and fraternité!" the national mantra.
