The King's Chamber

The King's Chamber was the second-largest of the sub-categories next to the Boucher - it was also one of the absolutely most coveted since it provided quite close contact to the King himself. This department also consists of the King's wardrobe but since that in itself is quite a substantial subject it has its' own page. The servants of the King's Chamber were all male just like the Queen's Chamber servants were all female. It was these men and boys that performed the ceremonies of the levée (rising) and coucher (going to bed).

These are the people and posts that made up the King's Chamber:

Gentlemen of the Chamber
Valets of the Chamber
Children of Honour 

The Levee of King Louis XV - The Levee of King Louis XV
Levée of Louis XV
