He was the tutor to the 7-yrar-old son of the French Dauphin, Louis XV, who was then second in line to the French throne But by far the most lasting of his works that Fénelon composed for the duke was his Les Aventures de Télémaque [The Adventures of Telemachus, Son of Ulysses], written in 1693-94.
