Then, instantly seizing another staff from the hands of an attendant, he waved it joyfully above his head, and shouted triumphantly, "Long live the king, Louis XV.!" A huzza burst from the lips of the assembled thousands almost loud enough to pierce the ear of the king, now palsied in death. There were few to mourn the departed monarch. As his remains were hurried to the vaults of St. Denis, those vaults which he had so much dreaded, the populace shouted execrations and pelted his coffin with mud. Not the slightest regard was paid to his will. The Duke of Orleans assumed the regency with absolute power. His reign was execrable, followed by the still more infamous reign of Louis XV. Then came the Revolution, as the sceptre of utterly despotic sway passed into the hands of the feeble Louis XVI. The storm, which had been gathering for ages, burst with fury which appalled the world. A more tremendous event has not occurred in the history of our race. The story has too often been told by those who were in sympathy with the kings and the nobles.

King Louis XIV

Although he didn’t create absolutism in France, King Louis XIV seemed to embody the “divine right of kings” better than anyone had before him. Louis XIV directly correlated his own private good with that of the public good.

King Louis XIV

King Louis XIV He was born on September 5th, 1638 in the French lap of luxury otherwise known as the "Chateau de Saint-Germain-en-Laye." This extravagant palace of French excess is located about 12 miles west of Paris. His birth name, "Louis-Dieudonne," is French for, literally, "Gift for God." This belief of divine right, initially inspired by his mother Queen Anne, would be a powerful theme throughout Louis XIV's life. Inside you will read about... ✓ The Conflict of Kings ✓ War and Marriage ✓ The Noose Tightens ✓ The Scorched Earth of Louis XIV ✓ The Balance of Power ✓ Louis's Last Stand ✓ The Death of the King And much more!Although he didn't create absolutism in France, King Louis XIV seemed to embody the "divine right of kings" better than anyone had before him. Louis XIV directly correlated his own private good with that of the public good. There was really no concept of private property under Louis. The French King viewed all of France as his personal estate, with all who lived and toiled in his domain doing so only under his express permission; even so, not everyone in France had the same sentiment. The ones who most notably resisted the notion of the King's absolutism were the French nobles and aristocrats that Louis depended upon to raise armies and defend the country. Despite his theory of absolutism, this dependence on French nobility to bear arms, gave them increasing autonomy and independence from the King. It was this independence that would one day come to a head, and send Louis, the so-called "Sun King" of divine inheritance, into a full-blown conflict with his own subjects - and the world at large.

The Wars of Louis XIV 1667 1714

Warfare dominated the long reign of the `Sun-king', Louis XIV. For forty years from 1672, France was continuously at war and had one of the largest armies seen in the West since the fall of imperial Rome. The campaigns secured little territory, but almost bankrupted the country and the consequences for the French monarchy were dramatic - contributing to its eventual downfall. John Lynn examines the wars for evidence of a coherent strategic policy; he explores the operational logistics of the campaigns; and considers their significance for France's diplomatic, political, mililtary, administrative and institutional This is the first modern, comprehensive study in any language, and offers a vivid insight into 17th and 18th century statesmanship and warfare - reaching a climax with the defeat of France by Marlborough at Blenheim.
