Title: The Memoirs of Louis XIV., Volume 5 And His Court and of The Regency.
Author: Duc de Saint-­Simon.
Language: English.

Two very different persons died towards the latter part of this year. The first was Lamoignon, Chief President; the second, Ninon, known by the name of Mademoiselle de l'Enclos. Of Lamoignon I will relate a single anecdote, curious and instructive, which will show the corruption of which he was capable.

Louis de Rouvroy, duc de Saint-­Simon, fut l'un des favoris de la cour de Louis XIV. Grand seigneur, il eut le privilège de loger à Versailles et d'y observer les intrigues de palais. Durant plus de trente ans, Saint-­Simon va être l'historiographe du roi et de la cour. Ses Mémoires, oeuvre colossale de plusieurs milliers de pages, ne sont pas une entreprise autobiographique, il s'agit en fait d'une gigantesque fresque historiographique. Le titre des Mémoires est trompeur. Saint-­Simon en avertit son lecteur: "Je ne parle pas du coeur, dont ce n'est pas ici le lieu. (...­) Ces Mémoires ne sont pas faits pour y parler de moi.­" Il précise : "J'écris une histoire particulière (...­) celle du temps et du pays où on vit.­" Une histoire donc et non une autobiographie : les Mémoires sont rédigés à la première personne, mais une personne se postant discrète et anonyme, comme une caméra cachée, dans les couloirs de Versailles et les allées de son jardin. De là, on assiste, spectateur comblé, . . .

No library of Court documents could pretend to be representative which ignored the famous "Memoirs" of the Duc de Saint-­Simon. They stand, by universal consent, at the head of French historical papers, and are the one great source from which all historians derive their insight into the closing years of the reign of the "Grand Monarch,­" Louis XIV: whom the author shows to be anything but grand—and of the Regency.
Louis de Rouvroy, who later became the Duc de Saint-­Simon, was born in Paris, January 16, 1675. He claimed descent from Charlemagne, but the story goes that his father, as a young page of Louis XIII., gained favour with his royal master by his skill in holding the stirrup, and was finally made a duke and peer of France. The boy Louis had no lesser persons than the King and Queen Marie Therese as godparents, and made his first formal appearance at Court when seventeen. He tells us that he was not a studious boy, but was fond of reading history; and that if he had been . . .
