The aim of this article is to characterize a wide spectrum of methods and ways of presenting the majesty and achievements of king Louis XIV and their ideological content, on the basis of an iconographic analysis of the works executed within the circle of painters of the royal court and the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture in Paris. These royal painters used either metaphor (referring to different kinds of allegorical representations or themes from ancient history) or composed pseudo-reporting scenes from the monarch’s life. A rich repertoire of superb roles of mythological and ancient origins emphasized the dignity of the seigneur. The leading idea behind the official images of the Sun King is his portrayal as a victorious, ideal ruler full of virtues.
