After the late dinner was wrapped up, Louis would stand at the foot of his bed for a short amount of time, accompanied by the whole court, and then bow to them. He would then make his way to his study to spend time with his children and grandchildren for about an hour.
Before the king would retire to his bed for the night, he would make time to feed his dogs, and soon after would kneel down at his bedside to say his prayers.
Then after the King had undressed, he would bow as a "good night" gesture and then all of the court would retire to their own bedrooms. This was the last opportunity of the day to speak to the King.
