Court rules from France
At the Baroque court of the Sun King, Louis XIV of France, court ceremonies reached their greatest magnificence. It became a refined, ingenious instrument that served representational purposes for the ruler. In a relatively short time, other European courts took on this fashion from France and used it as the basis of their court life. At the prince-bishop's court in Bruchsal, everyday life may not have been subject to this complicated set of rules, but ceremonies and receptions followed them.
