The King is first woken up at 8 o´clock by his First Valet- de- Chambre. Soon after, the Chamberlain handed the king the book of the Office of the Holy Ghost.
The courtiers would take the King to Mass at which the choir would sing a motet (slow song). The King would then proceed after Mass to the chapel.
The king would proceed to eat either a petit couvert or a tres- petit couvert (a small or very small meal). The King would occasionally be accompanied by his brother Monsieur. Monsieur always handed the King his napkin and remain standing. The KIng would sometimes ask him to be seated with him if he remained standing there.
After dinner, the King would go to his studies. Following that, he would proceed down his own private staircase to a marble court. He would do this inorder to get fresh air because if he did not then he would suffer from headaches and vapours which was originally caused from to much perfume.
Most days he would walk around and glance at whatever buildings were in progress. Often he would take ladies out with him for picnics in the forests of Marly or Fontainebleau.
The King always had dinner at 10 o´clock and was served a grand couvert (a grand or large meal). A large number of people always attended, whether they were invited or not.
