A quarter past 8 every morning, the Great Chamberlain would come in and open all the curtains to help wake up the king.
He was shaved every other day, with the court watching; while it was being done he wore a short wig, without which he never allowed himself to be seen in.
When he had finished dressing he knelt down at the side of his bed and said his prayers
The courtiers waited in the Gallery until the king was ready to go to Mass, at which the choir always sang a motet. The ministers were told as soon as he had gone to the chapel, and they then gathered in the King’s study.
The King would remain seated until the end of the meal, when he would again hand the King his napkin
Before he retired to bed the King went to feed his dogs; then he said good-night and, going into his room, knelt down at his bedside to say his prayers.
