Louis XVI was born on August 23rd, 1754 in Versailles. As a healthy child, he was named after the death of his grandfather. He was the youngest child and had an older brother.
My turn next!
Louis' parents paid little attention to him. He was a shy kid but was really smart academically. Though, his brother died at 9 in 1761. His father died on Dec. 20, 1765, from tuberculosis. Later, his mother died from tuberculosis on March 13, 1767.
Treason of the Royals
In 1770, he married Marie Antoinette, daughter of the emperor and empress of Austria, a match intended to consolidate an alliance between France and Austria. Marie was a queen who controls Louis weak mind. Her extravagance had been a major cause of exhausting government finances.
Eventually, Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette had four children together: Marie-Thérèse, Louis-Joseph, Louis-Charles, and Sophie-Beatrix. All but Marie-Thérèse died in childhood.
I did no such things, you LIARS!!!!
King Louis encouraged Prussia to attack France to distract his people. This was considered treason by them at his death sentence. Marie, on the other hand, was charged with theft and sexual abuse on her son.
Well...... No king is perfect, right?
On January 21, 1793, Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were executed for treason. Louis had failed to address France's financial problems, instigating the French Revolution that eventually descended upon him. He made matters worse by often escaping to more pleasurable activities like hunting and locksmithing.
