From May 6 to 13, 1664, the Fêtes des Plaisirs de l'Isle enchantée took place, with a theme inspired by Arioste, Roland Furieux. The subject chosen, represented and engraved in nine plates is the Alcine Palace where Roger and other knights are delivered from enchantment by Angelique's ring. To accompany the whole, a text by Félibien describes these celebrations given in the gardens of Versailles, already well organised by Le Nôtre.
