Faces of History #10 Louis XIV of France
Fascinating individual. But, they say he was extremely egotistical. He also had a penchant for warring that I disagree with.
I don't like people who oppress the working class. Burdensome taxes to fund conquering Europe? BS.
I prefer Napoleon
So do I, by a lot, but even I admit that Louis's sense of style is on par or outdoes Napoleon's.
I can agree to that.
The Sun King, yea?
He wasn't my favorite, but there were many worse.
He was foolhardy, a spendthrift, he gave too much to his women, had his event planner killed because he got jealous... If I'm thinking of the right person.
Also a big fan of his unabashedly gay brother, Philip I Duke of Orleans.
Conqueror, fashionista, and builder of my favorite palace ever. I adore Le Roi-Soleil.
