Les Caprices du Roi Soleil (The Sun-King's Caprices)

The King wanted to be the Sun of his world, shining with splendour and pride. He died but years later, his biggest caprice is still there : Versailles.

The Sun wants is like a capricious King, coming and leaving, shining or fading.

 

Le Roi voulait régner comme un soleil sur son époque, resplendissant d'orgueil et de splendeur. Il finit par s'éteindre, laissant derrière lui son plus imposant caprice : Versailles.

Le Soleil est comme le Roi, apparaissant et disparaissant selon le bon plaisir de ses caprices...
