As a result of the marriage of Louis XIV and Maria Teresa of Austria, King Louis XIV acquired rights over the Low Countries.
King Louis XIV was fond of his brother Philippe, Duc d'Orleans.
However Louis did not consider Philippe competent enough to be involved in state business.
King Louis excluded Philippe from councils with his ministers.
Louis XIV brought street lighting and a police force to Paris.
In 1686, he founded the Institut de Saint-Cyr, an academy for impoverished aristocratic girls.
King Louis XIV ordered that table knives have rounded, not pointed ends, to stop them being used as daggers during mealtime arguments.

Maybe it was to symbolise their meeting in heaven?

Thanks for sharing the article!

It is great that some of Louis' XVI tapestries have been preserved and displayed.

Was a nine-year-old boy imprisoned for making a joke about Louis XIV’s bald head?
