Hello class. Today I will be teaching you about King Louis XIV. King Louis was born in September 5, 1638 and died September 1, 1715. He was the ruler of France since the age of 5. King Louis was an absolute monarch.
Well, and absolute monarch is a ruler who has complete control over their subjects or people. Like their lives, religion, etc.
Mr. Norgaard. What's an absolute monarch?
King Henry XIV was an absolute monarch. He had complete control over his subjects and their lives. He believed in one religion and would not allow protestants to practice their own faith. One famous quote of his was. "I am the state."
Fun fact, King Louis was married 2 times. First to Francoise d'Aubigne, Marquise de Maintenon. Then to Maria Theresa of Spain. With his 2 mives he had 17 children! Im sorry for whoever had to change all of those diapers!
Life under King Louis was decent. You had to practice the religion he said you would be and he would throw very big festivals....For himself. There were ceremonies to watch him sue the restroom! That is all the time we have today if you want to see pictures of him and his home please visit the link I put on the board.
