Louis XIV (5 September 1638 – 1 September 1715), known as Louis the Great (Louis le Grand) or the Sun King (le Roi-Soleil), was a monarch of the House of Bourbon who ruled as King of France and Navarre from 1643 until his death. His reign of 72 years and 110 days is the longest of monarchs of major countries in European history.
King Louis XIV of France was an enthusiastic dancer and had a great influence on the development of a new form of dance. He was known as "The Sun King" because of a ballet role he performed at the age of 14, where he represented the rising sun. During Louis' reign, two kinds of dance developed: social dances for the ballroom and theatrical dances for court entertainments.

King's Bed Chamber - Vaux-le-Vicomte- La cause de la disgrâce: le parti dévôt est absolument contre l'alliance qui s'est faite en Angleterre, jugée hérétique, et le royaume de France. Le roi, probablement empoisonné, entouré de médecins, réussit à vomir et survit alors que "l'après Louis XIV" etait évoqué. Colbert aussi avait prévenu le cardinal dès 1658 d'une possible tentative d'empoisonnement à l'encontre du roi.
