File: Passions and entertainments of Louis XV

Royal pleasures

The exercise of power is often combined with entertainment, in a wide variety of fields. King Louis XV was no exception to the rule, as his leisure activities were many and varied throughout his reign. In addition to his taste for hunting, he had several activities and special interests, particularly in architecture and botany. His mistresses' presence at his side also changed his interests, specifically in court games, which accompanied his reign, as well as the many entertainments that appeared during the almost sixty years he was on the French throne. In this respect, he influenced most of the European fashions that appeared during the eighteenth century.
