Background
The Mayor’s Levee is a tradition that dates back to the 18th century, during the reign of King Louis XIV.  To show the sovereign belonged to the people, the King would invite only gentlemen to enter his bedroom on New Year’s Day where they would watch him wake up and begin serving the public. The Royal Governor of New France later brought this custom to Canada.
