The name Bourdalou for the oval "Pot de chambre" originates of the priest and professor in rhetoric Louis Bourdaloue (1632 – 1704), who was the Court preacher under Louis XIV. His sermons were as much fascinating as they were long. The Court Ladies were devotedly listening to his dulcet voice (the sermons were published in eight volumes – each of more than 600 pages – between 1707 and 1716 in Paris). Legends say that the ladies reserved their places many hours before the beginning. In order not to miss anything in church they used Bourdalous.
