This article states that this ballet has something to do with "paintings of Watteau that depict Louis XV and various women at the Parc aux Biches". Antoine Watteau died in 1721, when Louis XV was 11 !

As far as I am concerned, the Parc aux Biches is a skying resort near the Massif Central. Nothing to do. There was something called the Parc aux Cerfs ['Stag Park'], a kind of bawdy house kept for the adult Louis XV's benefit, long after Watteau's death.

In fact this ballet makes no historical references. (talk) 12:14, 19 June 2011 (UTC)

I notice that when this article was first written it referred to "Louis XIV". Presumably this was correct? The article is badly in need of citations to sources. --Deskford (talk) 13:25, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
