The death of Louis XIV on 1 September 1715 left the Kingdom of France orphan after a reign of 72 years, during which the state, the monarch’s power, sciences, arts and the frontiers of France were entirely redesigned. The long expected event still caused a wave of shock and the whole Kingdom mourned with grand funeral ceremonies, three of which are now know as the Royal Funerals of Louis XIV.
