I am astonished by the magnificent costumes of Louis XIV, le Roi Soleil (the Sun King), although this blog is about Linear A B & C. Unlike the male costumes under Louis XV and Louis XVI of the 18th. century, which were effete, effeminate and decadent, those of the young Louis XIV of the 17th. century were truly magnificent. I am posting several photos and one painting of Louis XIV in this and the next few posts for you to feast your eyes on. Some of these photos are from the movie, The Man in the Iron Mask (1998), starring Leonard di Caprio as Louis XIV, while others are from the magnificent series, Versailles (2016-2017), starring Alexandre Vlahos (Canal + and Téléfilm Canada). Strangely enough, the latter series is in English, though entirely sponsored by French TV and movie companies. Comments are welcome.
