Best Answer

In the Memoirs, Saint-Simon's observations allowed him to describe vividly both the elegance and the corruption of the court of Versailles. Despite some errors of fact and interpretation. His knowledge of history made him aware of the breakdown of traditional checks and balances that underlay Louis XIV's royal absolutism. Good additude towards him.
