About the book
 
Philip Mansel’s King of the World is a magnificent and perceptive account of the man who dominated the seventeenth century more than any other. To what extent did Louis have absolute power, or was decision-making in the hands of ministers and mistresses? How much of the extravagance of Versailles was for show, and how far was Louis himself the show? How could such a civilized man commit so many acts of barbarism? How effective was he as a ruler and a general? Did he leave his country stronger or weaker than it was before? Mansel offers original and persuasive answers to these questions, and weaves a brilliant tapestry of the life of one of the most compelling figures in European history.
 
"No other English-language biography has so successfully given us a portrait of him as man and monarch…Mansel renders his satellites in fascinating detail…His grasp of the sources is superb", Gareth Russell, The Times
 
"the best single-volume account of the reign in any language", John Adamson, The Sunday Times.
 
"Authoritative and nuanced…thorough success…Time and space both yield before Mansel’s authorial ambition", Minoo Dinshaw, The Daily Telegraph
