Absolute Monarch King Louis XIV's Daily Schedule Reading
This excellent worksheet includes a reading about the hour-by-hour daily schedule of Louis XIV and what his day was like. From waking up surrounded by hundreds in his bedroom in the Palace of Versailles to retiring 12 hours later, the the Sun King led a highly structured life.
Before starting the reading, students complete a chart of their daily schedule (waking up, breakfast, school, etc) to compare to Louis'. This gives a great perspective on how pampered an Absolute monarch really was and how he controlled the nobility so tightly. Ideas for how to use this in a class discussion are included.
After completing their daily schedule and the reading, students answer a set of 6 analysis questions. An answer key for these is included.
