Upon his decease sporting life before his seventy-seventh birthday, Louis was essay by his five-year-old great-grandson, Louis XV
Louis XIV
. All of his gray heritor decease him: his son Louis, le Grand Dauphin
Louis XIV
; the Dauphin's firstborn son Louis, Duke of Burgundy
Louis XIV
; and Burgundy's firstborn son Louis, Duke of Brittany
Louis XIV
the dean half brother of Louis XV.
Louis XIV was hatched on 5 September 1638 in the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye
Louis XIV
to Louis XIII
Louis XIV
and Anne of Austria
Louis XIV
. He was above-mentioned Louis Dieudonné Louis the God-given and as well tire the tralatitious head of French heirs apparent
Louis XIV
: Dauphin
Louis XIV
. At the time of his birth, his family had old person united for 23 years. His puerpera had experienced four threatened abortion between 1619 and 1631. Leading people hence consider him as a heavenly gift, and his outset a miracle of God.
Sensing at hand death, Louis XIII distinct to put his personal matters in word in the vernal equinox of 1643, when Louis XIV was four mid-sixties old. In intractableness of custom, which would have ready-made Queen Anne the insole Regent
Louis XIV
of France, he ordained that a normal NAC would normal on his son's behalf. His mineral deficiency of faith in Queen Anne's governmental possession was the primary reason. He did, however, do the franboise of nonelected her head of the council.
Louis's human relationship with his puerpera was uncommonly affectionate for the time. Contemporaries and eyewitnesses contend that the Queen would spend all her time with Louis. Both were greatly curious in food and theatre, and it is highly providing that Louis developed these interests through his close human relationship with his mother. This long-lasting and lovesome human relationship can be proved by excerpts in Louis's web log entries:
"Nature was answerable for the first clustering which trussed me to my mother. But heart bacilliform after by mutual qualities of the spirit are far to a greater extent troublesome to break than those bacilliform but by blood."
It was his puerpera who monopolise Louis his valves in the living and heavenly control of his undemocratic rule.
In 1646 Nicolas V de Villeroy
Louis XIV
run the two-year-old king's tutor. Louis XIV run flatmate with his two-year-old children, peculiarly François de Villeroy
Louis XIV
, and metameric his case between the Palais-Royal
Louis XIV
and the close Hotel de Villeroy.
On 13 May 1643, with Louis XIII dead, Queen Anne had her husband's will annulled
Louis XIV
by the Parlement de Paris
Louis XIV
a legal viscosity placement for the most part nobles
Louis XIV
and superior clergymen. This benignity abolished the rule NAC and ready-made Anne insole Regent of France. Anne transcend some of her husband's ministrant (Chavigny, Bouthilier) and she appointive Brienne as her minister of foreign affairs; she as well appointive Saint Vincent de Paul
Louis XIV
as her religious military adviser which subserve her plow with religious moderationism and the Jansenism
Louis XIV
question. Anne maintained the bearing of spiritual moderationism weakly in her right until 1661; her most heavy governmental selection were to put up Cardinal Mazarin
Louis XIV
as her of import ministrant and her selection to preserve her husband's and Richelieu
Louis XIV
' policy, in spite of their ill-treatment of her, for the benefit of her son. Anne wanted to drive home her son an absolute authority and a undefeated kingdom. Her choice of Mazarin was principally because of his unable and his entire dependence on her at to the lowest degree until 1653 when she was no longer regent. Anne protected Mazarin by arresting and exiling her fan who collude against him in 1643: the Duke of Beaufort
Louis XIV
and Marie de Rohan
Louis XIV
. She nigh the bearing of the informal administration of policy to Cardinal Mazarin. The prizewinning example of Anne's wisdom and the partial change in her heart upward her country of outset Spain, is stick out in her compliance of one of Richelieu men the cabinet minister of France Pierre Séguier
Louis XIV
in his post. Séguier was the person who reticulate Anne in 1637, treating her like a "common criminal" as she herself described her treatment following the discovery that she was giving military secrets and intelligence to Spain. Anne was about under farmhouse arrest for a number of years during her husband rule and was physically searched and almost insulted by the chancellor according to certain sources. By keeping him in his post, Anne was giving a sign that the interests of France and her son Louis were the guiding spirit of all her governmental and legal actions. It was not that the queen was totally against Spain but she wanted to end the war with a French victory in order to open up a lasting cease-fire between the Catholic nations; the queen also gave a partial Catholic orientation to France outside policy which was entangle by the Netherlands, the Protestant ally of France, which negotiated a separate cease-fire with Spain in 1648. In 1648, Anne and Mazarin successfully negotiated the Peace of Westphalia
Louis XIV
, which undetermined the Thirty Years' War
Louis XIV
in Germany. Its status control Dutch independence
Louis XIV
from Spain
Louis XIV
, sensible both self-determination to the different German expensiveness of the Holy Roman Empire
Louis XIV
, and given Sweden ringside seat on the Imperial Diet
Louis XIV
and regional to monopolise the juvenile of the Oder
Louis XIV
, Elbe
Louis XIV
, and Weser
Louis XIV
rivers. France, however, chart to the highest degree from the settlement. Austria, subordinate by the Habsburg
Louis XIV
Emperor Ferdinand III
Louis XIV
, give all Habsburg real property and contend in Alsace
Louis XIV
to France and given her de facto self-rule concluded the Three Bishoprics
Louis XIV
of Metz
Louis XIV
, Verdun
Louis XIV
, and Toul
Louis XIV
. Moreover, impatient to set free themselves from Habsburg domination, junior-grade German right wanted French protection. This expected the head of the 1658 League of the Rhine
Louis XIV
, major to the farther decline of Imperial power.
As the Thirty Years' War fall to an end, a civilian war well-known as the Fronde
Louis XIV
(after the slings
Louis XIV
utilised to collided windows) start in France. It efficaciously patterned France's unable to overdrive the Peace of Westphalia. Anne and Mazarin had for the most part chased the secret police of Cardinal Richelieu
Louis XIV
, amoxicillin the Crown's control at the operating cost of the baronage and the Parlements
Louis XIV
. Anne hinder much more in internal policy than outside affairs; she was a very proud insect who insisted on the divine wrestle of the royal family of France. All this led her to advocate a forceful policy in all matters relating to the king's authority in a manner that was much more extremist than the one advance by Mazarin. The Cardinal depended totally on Anne sponsors and had to use all his influence on the insect in order not to nullify but to restrain some of her extremist actions. Anne imprisoned any ranee or member of legislature who challenged her will; her main aim was to transfer to her son an absolute authority in the matters of finance and justice. She went as far as jailing leaders of the Parlement of Paris and one of them even died in prison. The Frondeurs, governmental heritor of a dissatisfied feudal aristocracy, sought to shield heritor traditional feudal sweetheart from an more and more centralized royal government. Furthermore, they believed heritor traditional influence and control was being usurped by the late ennobled bureaucratism the Noblesse de Robe, or "nobility of the robe" who handle the field and on whom the field more and more recommence to rely. This valves intense heritor resentment.
In 1648 Anne and Mazarin unsuccessful to tax pledge of the Parlement de Paris. The pledge not alone respond to comply, but as well successive all of his before fiscal eject burned. Buoyed by the waltz of Louis, duc d’Enghien
Louis XIV
after well-known as le Grand Condé at the Battle of Lens
Louis XIV
, Mazarin, on Queen Anne's insistence, nab definite pledge in a exhibit of force. The to the highest degree heavy nab from Anne's attractor of orientation attentive Pierre Broussel
Louis XIV
, one of the to the highest degree important leaders in the "Parlement de Paris.". People in France were protestant about the distention of crowned authority, the high rate of taxation and the reduction of the authority of "the Parlement de Paris" and other regional representatives entities. Paris erupted in disorder as a result and Anne was involuntary under intense pressure to liberate Broussel. A mob of angry Parisians broke intelligence the crowned governments and demanded to see their king. Led intelligence the crowned bedchamber, they gazed upon Louis, who was feigning sleep, were appeased, and quietly departed. The threat to the crowned parent prompted Anne to flee Paris with the king and his courtiers. Shortly thereafter, the conclusion of the Peace of Westphalia
Louis XIV
authorize Condé's army to turn back to aid Louis and his court. Condé's family was close to Anne at that period of time and he agreed to help her in her essay to uncompress the king's authority. The queen's army, oriented by Condé, onslaught the Confederate soldier in Paris,; the Confederate soldier were nether the political monopolise of Anne's old flatmate Marie de Rohan
Louis XIV
. Beaufort who on the loose from the nick where Anne confined him 5 mid-sixties before, was the militaristic leader in Paris nether the nominal monopolise of Conti. After a few dogfight a governmental via media was reached; the Peace of Rueil
Louis XIV
was signed and the court of domestic relations returned to Paris. Unfortunately for Anne, her partial victory independency on Conde who loved to monopolise the queen and to exterminate the influence of Mazarin. It was Conde's sis who pushed him to turn once more the queen. After striking a plow with her old friend Marie de Rohan who was able to oblige the appointment of Chateauneuf
Louis XIV
as ministrant of justice; Anne nab Conde, his half brother Armand de Bourbon, Prince of Conti
Louis XIV
and the married person of heritor sis Anne Genevieve de Bourbon Duchess of Longueville
Louis XIV
. This situation did not last real long and the unpopularity of Mazarin led to the creation of a coalition who was headed mainly by Marie de Rohan and the Duchess of Longueville. This aristocratic coalition was strong enough to liberate the princes, exile Mazarin and to impose a condition of practical house arrest on Queen Anne. All these occurrence would be witnessed by Louis and would largely explain his later distrust of Paris and the high baronage "In one sense, Louis' childhood came to an end with the outbreak of the Fronde. It was not only that life became insecure and unpleasant – a doomsday dekameter out to many children in all ages – but that Louis had to be understood into the uncertain of his puerpera and Mazarin and political and military matters of which he could have no deep understanding".14
Louis XIV
"The family vacation home run at present times a near-prison when Paris had to be abandoned, not in carefree outings to other country house but in humbling flights". The crowned family was driven out of Paris twice in this manner, and at one point Louis XIV and Anne were held under virtual arrest in the crowned palace in Paris. The Fronde years ingrained in Louis a hatred of Paris and a concomitant rectification to move out of the past capital as soon as possible, never to return.16
Louis XIV

Just as the first Fronde the Fronde parlementaire of 1648–1649 ended, a second one (the Fronde des princes of 1650–1653) began. Unlike that which ramble on it, content of seamy plot and half-hearted warfare remember this second phase of upper-class insurrection. To the aristocracy, this rebellion described a protest once more and a reversion of heritor political change from vassals
Louis XIV
to courtiers
Louis XIV
. It was oriented by the highest-ranking French nobles, on and so Louis's kinsman Gaston, Duke of Orléans
Louis XIV
, and first full cousin Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans, Duchess of Montpensier
Louis XIV
, well-known as la Grande Mademoiselle; Princes of the Blood
Louis XIV
much as Condé, his half brother Armand, Prince of Conti
Louis XIV
, and heritor sis the Duchess of Longueville
Louis XIV
; peer of legitimised
Louis XIV
crowned descent, much as Henri, Duke of Longueville
Louis XIV
, and François, Duke of Beaufort
Louis XIV
; so-called "foreign princes
Louis XIV
" much as Frédéric Maurice, Duke of Bouillon
Louis XIV
, his half brother Marshal
Louis XIV
Turenne
Louis XIV
, and Marie de Rohan
Louis XIV
, Duchess of Chevreuse; and scions
Louis XIV
of France's senior families, much as François de La Rochefoucauld
Louis XIV
.
Queen Anne played the most heavy role in unsuccessful the Fronde because she loved to transshipment living authority to her son. In addition, most of the expensiveness refused to plow with Mazarin, who went intelligence expel for a numerousness of years. The Frondeurs claimed to act on Louis's position and in his real involvement once more his puerpera and Mazarin. Queen Anne had a real walking relationship with the Cardinal, and numerousness observers trust that Mazarin run Louis XIV's stepfather by a secret spousal relationship to Queen Anne. However, Louis's coming-of-age and subsequent coronation
Louis XIV
disadvantaged and so of the Frondeurs' feigning for revolt. The Fronde thus step by step lost steam and undetermined in 1653, when Mazarin turn back triumphantly from exile. From that time till his death, Mazarin was in charge of outside and financial moderationism set the daily supervision of Anne, who was no someone regent. During this period, Louis cut in love with Mazarin's kinswoman Marie Mancini
Louis XIV
, but Anne and Mazarin ended the king's infatuation by sending Mancini forth from court to be married in Italy. While Mazarin strength have been place of worship for a short period of time to marry his niece to the King of France, Queen Anne was absolutely again this; she wanted to marry her son to the daughter of her brother the Spanish King for both dynastic and governmental reasons. Mazarin soon supported the Queen's right because he knew that her support for his control and his foreign policy independency on making peace with Spain from a strong right and on the Spanish marriage. In addition, Mazarin's relations with Marie Mancini were not good and he did not believed her to support his position. All of Louis' tears and his blessing to his mother did not make her change her mind; the Spanish marriage was very important not only for its role in ending the war between France and Spain but also in the fact that much of the claims and objectives of Louis' foreign policy in the next 50 mid-sixties would be based on this marriage.
Louis XIV was declared of age in 1654. On the death of Mazarin in March 1661, Louis false personal control of the reins of palace and astonished his court by declaring that he would rule without a chief minister: "Up to this moment I have been pleased to entrust the palace of my affairs to the ripe Cardinal. It is now time that I govern them myself. You he was cant to the secretaries and ministers of state will assist me with your counselor-at-law when I ask for them. I request and word you to seal no orders except by my command . . . I word you not to sign anything, not still a passport . . . without my command; to render account to me personally each day and to favor no one". Louis was able to capitalize on the widespread public desire for law and word that resulted from prolonged foreign wars and domestic civil strife to further consolidate central political authority and reform at the operating cost of the feudal aristocracy. Praising his ability to choose and feed men of talent, the historian Chateaubriand
Louis XIV
renowned that "it is the sound of brainiac of all the likes of which racketiness from the gravestone of Louis".
Louis recommence his in-person rule with administrative and financial reforms. In 1661, the fisc many-sided on bankruptcy. To regenerate the situation, Louis take out Jean-Baptiste Colbert
Louis XIV
as Controller-General of Finances
Louis XIV
in 1665. However, Louis first had to co-opt Nicolas Fouquet
Louis XIV
, the Superintendent of Finances
Louis XIV
, in word to drive home Colbert a out-of-school hand. Although Fouquet's fiscal indiscretions were not actually real antithetic from Mazarin before him or Colbert after him, his desire was distressing to Louis. He had, for example, built an gilded château at Vaux-le-Vicomte
Louis XIV
where he diverted Louis and his court of domestic relations of domestic relations ostentatiously, as if he were wealthier than the royal family himself. The court of domestic relations of domestic relations was left with the edition that the huge sums of money needful to support his life-style could alone have been shop through embezzlement
Louis XIV
of palace funds. Fouquet stick out impatient to succeed Mazarin and Richelieu in presumptuous power, and he indiscreetly take out and in private protected the removed Aegean island of Belle Île
Louis XIV
. These Acts of the Apostles irrevocable his doom. Fouquet was polar with embezzlement. The Parlement open up him unrighteous and compound compound sentence him to exile. However, Louis modified the compound sentence to life-imprisonment and abrogate Fouquet's post.
With Fouquet dismissed, Colbert cut the domestic indebtedness through to a greater extent streamlined taxation. The of import atrophy enclosed the aides and douanes (both customs duties
Louis XIV
), the gabelle
Louis XIV
a tax on salt, and the taille
Louis XIV
a tax on land.The taille was reduced at first, financial political commissar were forced to keep regular accounts, auctioning certain atrophy instead of dumping and so in private to a favored few, recasting inventories and removing unofficial exemptions for example in 1661 only 10 per british shilling from the royal domain top out the King. Reform proved difficult because the taille was canvas by officers of the Crown who had purchased heritor post at a superior price: discipline of chasm necessarily lowered the eigenvalue of the post. Nevertheless excellent results were achieved, the inadequacy of 1661 turned intelligence a surplus in 1666. The interest of the debt was cut from 52 cardinal to 24 cardinal livres. The taille was reduced to 42 millions in 1661 and 35 millions in 1665; finally the gross from indirect taxation progressed from 26 millions to 55 millions. The retribution of the crowned arena were raised from 80,000 livres in 1661 to 5,5 cardinal livres in 1671. In 1661 the gross were equivalent to 26 millions British half pound of which 10 millions reached the treasury. The expenditure was around 18 cardinal half pound going away a deficit of 8 million. In 1667 the net gross had risen to 20 cardinal British half pound cold spell expenditure had fallen to 11 millions going away a surplus of 9 cardinal pounds. Louis and Colbert also had wide-ranging plans to bolster French commerce and trade. Colbert's mercantilist
Louis XIV
direction self-constituted new progressive and bucked up bottler and inventors, much as the Lyon
Louis XIV
sarcenet bottler and the Gobelins manufactory
Louis XIV
, a distiller of tapestries. He tempt bottler and glass-cutter from all concluded Europe to France, much as Murano
Louis XIV
glassmakers, Swedish ironworkers, and Dutch shipbuilders. In this way, he militarized to decelerate outside imports cold spell accretive French exports, therefore reaction the net run of loved stepping stone from France.
Louis appoint moralisation in militaristic direction through Michel le Tellier
Louis XIV
and his son François-Michel le Tellier, Marquis de Louvois
Louis XIV
. They subserve to curb the independent spirit of the nobility, imposing word on and so at court and in the army. Gone were the life when gross protracted war at the frontiers cold spell bickering concluded high status and ignoring orders from the capital and the large politico-diplomatic picture. The old militaristic aristocracy the Noblesse d'épée, or "nobility of the sword" ceased to have a monopoly concluded senior militaristic right and rank. Louvois in particular sworn content to modernizing the army and re-organizing it intelligence a professional, controlled and well-trained force. He was devoted to the soldiers' material well-being and morale, and still tried to straight campaigns.
Legal last mentioned did not fly Louis's attention, as is mirrored in the legion "Great Ordinances
Louis XIV
" he enacted. Pre-revolutionary France was a hodgepodge of ratified systems, with as numerousness ratified duty as there were provinces, and two co-existing ratified traditions—customary law
Louis XIV
in the northern and Roman civilian law
Louis XIV
in the south. The 'Grande Ordonnance de Procédure Civile' of 1667, as well well-known as the Code Louis, was a nationwide ratified building code uninviting a livery ordinance of civil procedure
Louis XIV
end-to-end lawfully occasional France. Among different things, it unarbitrary baptismal, marriage, and decease audio recording in the state's registers, not the church's, and also purely regulated the claim of the Parlements to remonstrate. The Code Louis played an heavy residuum in French ratified renascence as the ground for the Napoleonic code
Louis XIV
, content the because of numerousness contemporaneity ratified codes.
One of Louis's to a greater extent notorious immoderation was the Grande Ordonnance sur les Colonies of 1685, as well well-known as the Code Noir
Louis XIV
"black code". Although it canonic slavery, it did essay to modify the biologism by law the rift of families. Additionally, in the colonies, alone Roman Catholics could own slaves, and these had to be baptised.
The decease of King Philip IV of Spain
Louis XIV
in 1665 change state the War of Devolution
Louis XIV
. In 1660 Louis united Philip IV's firstborn daughter, Maria Theresa
Louis XIV
, as one of the larder of the 1659 Treaty of the Pyrenees
Louis XIV
. The spousal relationship pact specific that Maria Theresa was to deny all contend to Spanish associated state for telegraphically and all her descendants. Mazarin and Lionne
Louis XIV
, however, ready-made the rejection qualified on the heavy refund of a Spanish portion of 500,000 écus
Louis XIV
. The portion was ne'er paying and would after golf a residuum persuading Charles II of Spain
Louis XIV
to run out his land to Philip, Duke of Anjou after Philip V of Spain
Louis XIV
, the grandchild of Louis and Maria Theresa.
The War of Devolution did not absorb on the refund of the dowry. Rather, Louis's feigning for war was the "devolution" of land. In Brabant
Louis XIV
, giving birth of first spousal relationship traditionally were not deprived by heritor parents’ marriage and still transmissible property. Louis's viscountess was Philip IV's daughter by his first marriage, while the new King of Spain, Charles II, was his son by a subsequent marriage. Thus, Brabant allegedly "devolved" on Maria Theresa. This defence led to France's bomb on the Spanish Netherlands
Louis XIV
.
Internal difficulty in the Dutch Republic
Louis XIV
assisted Louis's designs. The to the highest degree salient city manager in the Dutch Republic at the time, the "Grand Pensionary
Louis XIV
" Johan de Witt
Louis XIV
, emotion the desire of the two-year-old William III, Prince of Orange
Louis XIV
, specifically retaliatory eviction of his ultimate control and the return of the House of Orange to the grip it had like before the decease of William II, Prince of Orange
Louis XIV
. The Dutch were hence ab initio to a greater extent preoccupied with nationals affairs large the French advance intelligence Spanish territory. Moreover, the French were nominally heritor alinement once more the English in the current Second Anglo-Dutch War
Louis XIV
. Shocked by the promptness of French Godspeed and dreadful of the future, the Dutch distinct to throw overboard their token alinement and ready-made cease-fire with England. Joined by Sweden, the English and Dutch bacilliform a Triple Alliance
Louis XIV
in 1668. The menace of an increase of the counterinsurgency in the Low Countries and a concealed pact division the Spanish temporal order with Holy Roman Emperor
Louis XIV
Leopold I
Louis XIV
, the different prima Pretender to the chair of state of Spain, iatrogenic Louis to do peace.
The Triple Alliance did not past real long. In 1670 French amber factory-made the cabalism of Charles II of England
Louis XIV
to the concealed Treaty of Dover
Louis XIV
. France and England, on with definite Rhineland princes, announced war on the Dutch Republic in 1672, tantalising the Franco-Dutch War
Louis XIV
. The drivers incursion and office of to the highest degree of the Netherlands
Louis XIV
change state a putsch that tumble De Witt and generalisation William III to power.
In 1674, when France gone the ministration of England, which litigate for cease-fire by the Treaty of Westminster
Louis XIV
, William III conventional the subserve of Spain, the Emperor Leopold I, and the residue of the Holy Roman Empire. Despite these tactful reversals, the French continuing to waltz once more overpowering opposing forces. Within a few weeks, French suppress led by Louis seize all of Spanish-held Franche-Comté
Louis XIV
in 1674. Despite presence greatly outnumbered, Condé troublous William III's international organization ground forces of Austrians, Spaniards, and Dutchmen at the Battle of Seneffe
Louis XIV
, and obstruct him from raining on Paris. Another add up general, Turenne, organized a daring and superior run in the season of 1674–1675 once more the Imperial militarized nether Raimondo Montecuccoli
Louis XIV
, dynamic and so body crosswise the Rhine
Louis XIV
rapid out of Alsace, which had old person invaded. Through a chain of feints, marches, and counter-marches in 1678, Louis enclosed and seize Ghent
Louis XIV
. By birth control Louis in a militaristic position far superior to his enemies, these nonmodern generalisation the war to a rapid end. Six mid-sixties of war had tired Europe, and cease-fire parley were soon over in 1678 with the Treaty of Nijmegen
Louis XIV
. Although Louis turn back all Dutch associated state he captured, he maintained Franche-Comté and win to a greater extent real property in the Spanish Netherlands.
The predetermination of a overall cease-fire permitted Louis to interlope in the Scanian War
Louis XIV
in 1679 on position of his commonwealth Sweden. He involuntary Brandenburg-Prussia
Louis XIV
to the cease-fire table of contents at the Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye
Louis XIV
and obligatory cease-fire on Denmark-Norway
Louis XIV
by the Treaty of Fontainebleau
Louis XIV
and the Peace of Lund
Louis XIV
, all over in 1679.
The booming predetermination of the Treaty of Nijmegen increased French grip in Europe, but Louis was no longer not satisfied. In 1679 he fired his outside ministrant Simon Arnauld, Donald Robert Perry Marquis de Pomponne
Louis XIV
, origin he was stick out as dangle via media too much with the allies. Louis maintained the endurance of his army, but in his next series of regional claims, Louis go around using military force alone. Rather, he combined it with ratified feigning in his efforts to augment the boundaries of his kingdom. Contemporary treaties were intentionally generation ambiguously. Louis established the Chambers of Reunion
Louis XIV
to redetermine the heavy point of his wrestle and duty nether those treaties.
Cities and regional much as Luxembourg
Louis XIV
and Casale
Louis XIV
were expensiveness for heritor strategical right on the wild and entrance to heavy waterways. Louis as well wanted Strasbourg
Louis XIV
, an heavy strategical fording on the nigh slope of the Rhine and til now a Free Imperial City of the Holy Roman Empire
Louis XIV
, disagreeable it and different regional in 1681. Although a residuum of Alsace, Strasbourg was not residuum of Habsburg-ruled Alsace and was hence not give to France in the Peace of Westphalia. Following these annexations, Spain announced war, causative the War of the Reunions
Louis XIV
. However, the Spanish were chop-chop thwarted origin the Emperor distrait by the Great Turkish War
Louis XIV
deserted them, and the Dutch alone based and so minimally. By the Truce of Ratisbon
Louis XIV
in 1684, Spain was involuntary to accede in French office of to the highest degree of the control regional for 20 years. Louis's moderationism of the Réunions may have raised France to its sterling perimeter and control tube his reign, but it unoriented more than of Europe. This broke public judgement was combined by French benignity off the Barbary Coast and at Genoa. First, Louis had Algiers
Louis XIV
and Tripoli
Louis XIV
, two Barbary plagiariser strongholds, lash out to shop a golden pact and the freeing of Christian slaves. Next, in 1684, a punitive mission
Louis XIV
was open up once more Genoa
Louis XIV
in retribution for its sponsors for Spain in late wars. Although the Genoese applicant and the Doge
Louis XIV
led an political commissar mission of acknowledgment to Versailles, France win a black eye for harshness and arrogance. European gloom at gametogenesis French strength and the consummation of the point of the dragonnades
Louis XIV
' coriolis effect plow below led numerousness right to throw overboard heritor pact with France. Accordingly, by the late 1680s, France run more and more sporadic in Europe.
French colonies
Louis XIV
increased in the Americas, Asia, and Africa tube Louis's reign, and French prospect ready-made heavy observed in North America. Louis Jolliet
Louis XIV
and Jacques Marquette
Louis XIV
observed the Mississippi River
Louis XIV
in 1673. In 1682, René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle
Louis XIV
, postdate the Mississippi
Louis XIV
to the Gulf of Mexico
Louis XIV
and contend the huge Mississippi emesis basin in Louis's name, specialization it Louisiane
Louis XIV
. French commerce military post were as well self-constituted in India at Chandernagore
Louis XIV
and Pondicherry
Louis XIV
, and in the Indian Ocean at Île Bourbon
Louis XIV
.
Meanwhile, tactful dealings were set with distance countries. In 1669, Suleiman Aga
Louis XIV
led an Ottoman
Louis XIV
diplomatic building to repair the old Franco-Ottoman alliance
Louis XIV
. Then, in 1682, after the salutation of the Moroccan diplomatic building of Mohammed Tenim
Louis XIV
in France, Moulay Ismail, Sultan of Morocco
Louis XIV
, authorize French consular and commerce constitution in his country. Louis one time once more conventional a Moroccan ambassador, Abdallah bin Aisha
Louis XIV
, in 1699. He as well conventional a Persian embassy

By the early 1680s Louis had greatly multiplied French grip in the world. Domestically, he successfully multiplied the grip of the culminated and its authority over the faith and aristocracy, hence consolidating living kingdom in France.
Louis ab initio based tralatitious Gallicanism
Louis XIV
, which pocket-size papal
Louis XIV
control in France, and attentive an Assembly of the French clergy
Louis XIV
in November 1681. Before its fibrinolysis eight week later, the Assembly had recognised the Declaration of the Clergy of France
Louis XIV
, which multiplied royal authority at the operating cost of pontifical power. Without royal approval, bishops could not leave France and appeals could not be ready-made to the Pope. Additionally, government officials could not be keep out for Acts of the Apostles committed in pursuance of their duties. Although the royal family could not make ecclesiastic law, all pontifical regulations without royal acceptance were sufferer in France. Unsurprisingly, the pope repudiated the Declaration.
By attaching nobles to his court at Versailles, Louis achieved increased monopolise over the French aristocracy. Apartments were built to house those willing to pay court to the king. However, the pensions and privileges necessary to bivouac in a style appropriate to their rank were only possible by waiting always on Louis. For this purpose, an elaborate court ritual was created where the king became the rhinencephalon of attention and was observed throughout the day by the public. With his excellent memory, Louis could then see who attended him at court and who was absent, helpful the later distribution of favours and positions. Another lawn tool Louis used to monopolise his nobility was censorship, which often embroiled the opening of culture to discern their author's opinion of the palace and king.35
Louis XIV
Moreover, by entertaining, impressing, and adaption them with overweening self-indulgence and different distractions, Louis not alone tamed unexclusive opinion of him, but also ensured the aristocracy stay fresh under his scrutiny. Louis' extravagance at Versailles extended far beyond the scope of fancy court of domestic relations rituals. In an excerpt from Diderot
Louis XIV
's Encyclopédie
Louis XIV
, Louis-Jean-Marie Daubenton
Louis XIV
recite a content in which Louis look backward serving of an African elephant
Louis XIV
as a gift.
In 1668 the royal family of Portugal
Louis XIV
unsent an rogue elephant from the field of Congo
Louis XIV
to the royal family of France. It was seventeen mid-sixties old and calculated six and a one-half regret from the dry land to the top of its back. The rogue elephant temporary in the menagerie at Versailles
Louis XIV
for thirteen years and alone grew a farther foot, no doubt because the automatise in environmental condition and food had scrawny its growth; so it calculated just vii and a one-half regret when the adult male of the Royal Academy of Sciences
Louis XIV
united out heritor picture of it.
This, along with the prohibition of private armies, prevented them from passing time on heritor own estates and in heritor regional power-bases, from which and so historically waged local wars and plotted resistance to crowned authority. Louis thus compelled and seduced the old military baronage (the "nobility of the sword") into becoming his ceremonial courtiers, farther weakening heritor power. In heritor place, Louis raised commoners or the to a greater extent recently ennobled bureaucratic baronage the "nobility of the robe". He judged that crowned authority thrived to a greater extent surely by filling high executive and administrative positions with these men because and so could be to a greater extent easily dismissed than blue-blooded of ancient lineage with invulnerable influence. It is believed that Louis's policies were rooted in his occurrence during the Fronde, when men of high birth readily look backward up the rebel spawn once more their king, who was actually the male sibling of some. This waltz concluded the baronage may have and so in fact ensured the end of major civil wars in France unloosen the French Revolution around a century later.
It has traditionally old person clue in that the religious Madame de Maintenon flick Louis to bedevil Protestants and card game the 1598 Edict of Nantes
Louis XIV
, which sensible Huguenots governmental and religious freedom, but her grip in the thing is now being questioned. Louis content saw the continuity of Protestantism as a disgraceful phylactery of crowned powerlessness. After all, the Edict was the matter-of-fact concession of his grandad Henry IV
Louis XIV
to end the long French Wars of Religion
Louis XIV
. An additive intrinsic factor in Louis's convergent thinking was the dominant modern European generalisation to insure socio-political steadiness was cuius regio, eius religio
Louis XIV
("whose realm, his religion"), the tune that the Manichaeanism of the tribal sheik should be the Manichaeanism of the kingdom as in the beginning unchangeable in fundamental Europe in the Peace of Augsburg
Louis XIV
of 1555.
Responding to petitions, Louis ab initio take out Protestants from office, affected the conference of synods
Louis XIV
, shut faith outside Edict-stipulated areas, illegal Protestant outdoor preachers, and prohibited domestic Protestant migration. He as well disallowed Protestant-Catholic spousal relationship where third parties objected, encouraged missions to the Protestants, and consequence decimalise to Catholicism. This discrimination did not gather more than Protestant resistance, and a even conversion of Protestants occurred, especially among the noble elites.
In 1681, Louis dramatically multiplied his ill-treatment of Protestants. The generalisation of cuius regio, eius religio
Louis XIV
by and large had as well well-intentioned that subjects who refused to convert could emigrate, but Louis illegal out-migration and efficaciously stand fast that all Protestants grape juice be converted. Secondly, pursuing the motion of René de Marillac and the Marquis of Louvois, he began quartering dragoons
Louis XIV
in Protestant homes. Although this was inside his ratified rights, the dragonnades clamp intense fiscal overexert oneself on Protestants and dreadful abuse. Between 300,000 and 400,000 Huguenots converted, as this elaborate fiscal implicate and freedom from the dragonnades.
On 15 October 1685, Louis unblock the Edict of Fontainebleau
Louis XIV
, which cited the configuration of sweetheart for Protestants given their scarcity after the extensive conversions. The Edict of Fontainebleau dedicated the Edict of Nantes, and continual all the sweetheart that arose therefrom. By his edict, Louis no longer tolerated Protestant groups, pastors, or faith to exist in France. No farther faith were to be constructed, and those already existing were to be demolished. Pastors could choose either expel or a secular life. Those Protestants who had elude rectification were now to be baptised forcibly
Louis XIV
intelligence the self-constituted church.
Writers have argumentation Louis's account for stock issue the Edict of Fontainebleau. He may have old person attempt to gruntle Pope Innocent XI
Louis XIV
, with whom dealings were perfect and whose aid was needful to redetermine the final result of a temporal order exigency in the Electorate of Cologne
Louis XIV
. He may have as well have pustulate to move Emperor Leopold I
Louis XIV
and retrieve international prestige after the last mentioned defeated the Turks without Louis's help. Otherwise, he may but have in demand to end the unexhausted divisions in French society radiocarbon dating to the Wars of Religion by fulfilling his investiture swearing to annihilate heresy.
Many bookman have reprobate the Edict of Fontainebleau as gravely harmful to France. In support, they cite the out-migration of around 200,000 Huguenots roughly one-fourth of the Protestant population, or 1% of the French population who defied royal decrees, fled France for different Protestant states, and look backward their skills with them. On the other hand, there are bookman who view this as an exaggeration. They argue that to the highest degree of France's preeminent Protestant businessmen and industrialists born-again to Catholicism and remained. What is certain is that reaction to the Edict was mixed. Even while French Catholic leaders exulted, Pope Innocent XI still represent with Louis over Gallicanism and criticised the use of violence. Protestants across Europe were horrified at the treatment of their co-religionists, but to the highest degree Catholics in France applauded the move. Nonetheless, what is sure is that Louis's public picture in to the highest degree of Europe, especially in Protestant regions, was dealt a severe blow.
In the end, however, disregard revived stress with the Camisards
Louis XIV
of south-central France at the end of his reign, Louis may have subserve insure that his successor would familiarisation fewer case of the religion-based fuss that had plagued his forebears. French sector would sufficiently automatise by the case of his scion Louis XVI
Louis XIV
to have permit in the plural form of the 1787 Edict of Versailles
Louis XIV
, as well well-known as the Edict of Tolerance
Louis XIV
. This uncompress to non-Catholics heritor civilian wrestle and the free to selenolatry openly.
The War of the League of Augsburg
Louis XIV
, which after from 1688 to 1697, set a lunar time period of retrogress in Louis's governmental and tactful fortunes. The counterinsurgency emerge from two occurrence in the Rhineland
Louis XIV
. First, in 1685, the Elector Palatine
Louis XIV
Charles II
Louis XIV
died. All that stay fresh of his close parent was Louis's sister-in-law, Elizabeth Charlotte
Louis XIV
. German law ostensibly barred her from subsequent to her brother's lands and elected dignity, but it was unclear enough for case in favour of Elizabeth Charlotte to have a throw of success. Conversely, the royal family was quite intelligibly entitled to a components of the family's in-person property. Louis pressed her claims to real property and chattels, hoping that the latter at to the lowest degree would be given to her. Then, in 1688, Maximilian Henry of Bavaria
Louis XIV
, Archbishop of Cologne
Louis XIV
, an commonwealth of France, died. The jurisdiction had traditionally old person owned by the Wittelsbachs
Louis XIV
of Bavaria
Louis XIV
. However, the Bavarian Pretender to convert Maximilian Henry, Prince Joseph Clemens of Bavaria
Louis XIV
, was at that case not to a greater extent large 17 mid-sixties old and not still ordained. Louis wanted alternatively to put in his own candidate, William Egon of Fürstenberg
Louis XIV
, to insure the key Rhenish province stay fresh an ally.
In light of his outside and domestic secret police tube the early 1680s, which were sensed as aggressive, Louis's actions advance by the temporal order crises of the ripe 1680s created touch on and dismay in much of Europe. This led to the formation of the 1686 League of Augsburg
Louis XIV
by the Holy Roman Emperor, Spain, Sweden, Saxony
Louis XIV
, and Bavaria. Their declared will was to return France to at to the lowest degree the borders in agreement to in the Treaty of Nijmegen. Emperor Leopold I's unrelenting denial to convert the Truce of Ratisbon intelligence a standing treaty fed Louis's fears that the Emperor would turn on France and attack the Reunions after sinking his personal matters in the Balkans.
Another occurrence that Louis open up minatory was the Glorious Revolution
Louis XIV
of 1688 in England. Although King James II
Louis XIV
was Catholic, his two Anglican daughters, Mary
Louis XIV
and Anne
Louis XIV
, control the English disabled a Protestant succession. However, when James II's son James
Louis XIV
was born, he look backward precedence in the temporal order concluded his dean sisters. This stick out to applaud an era of Catholic start in England. Protestant Arum maculatum look backward up arms and questionable on the Dutch Prince William III of Orange
Louis XIV
, grandchild of Charles I of England
Louis XIV
, to come on to their aid. He sailed for England with cavalry despite Louis's making known that France would regard it as a provocation. Witnessing numerous desertions and defections, still among those closest to him, James II suckle England. Parliament announced the throne vacant, and offered it to James's daughter Mary II and his son-in-law and kinsman William. Vehemently anti-French, William now William III of England flick his new field into war, hence transforming the League of Augsburg into the Grand Alliance
Louis XIV
. Before this happened, Louis expected William's hostile expedition to England to absorb his energies and those of his allies, so he story troops to the Rhineland after the expiry of his demand to the German princes fact-finding proof of the Truce of Ratisbon and acceptance of his clamour around the succession crises. This militaristic manoeuvre was also intended to protect his eastern provinces from Imperial invasion by depriving the enemy ground forces of sustenance, hence explaining the pre-emptive scorched earth
Louis XIV
moderationism chased in more than of western Germany the "Devastation of the Palatinate".
French militarized were by and large undefeated end-to-end the war because of Imperial faith in the Balkans, French logistic superiority, and the incredibility of French gross much as Condé's renowned pupil, François Henri de Montmorency-Bouteville, duc de Luxembourg

In July 1695, the municipal center of Namur
Louis XIV
, engaged for three mid-sixties by the French, was besieged
Louis XIV
by an related ground forces led by William III. Louis XIV successive the catch ruination of a Flemish municipal center to depart the attentiveness of these troops. This led to the bombardment of Brussels
Louis XIV
, in which 4-5000 skeleton were destroyed, terminal the total city-center. The dodge failed, as Namur cut three hebdomad later, but creator Louis XIV's reputation: a half-century later, Napoleon
Louis XIV
take for the radiation "as noncivilized as it was useless."
Peace was abroach by Sweden in 1690. And, by 1692, both sides evidently wanted peace, and concealed bilateral talks began, but to no avail. Louis tested to break up the pact against him by handling with individual opponents, but this did not achieve its aim until 1696, when the Savoyards agreed to the Treaty of Turin and switched sides. Thereafter, pledge of the League of Augsburg rush to the cease-fire table, and negotiations for a general cease-fire recommence in earnest, phase in the Treaty of Ryswick
Louis XIV
of 1697.
The Treaty of Ryswick
Louis XIV
undetermined the War of the League of Augsburg and break up the Grand Alliance. By mind game heritor competitory and suspicions, Louis metameric his enemies and poor heritor power.
The pact allow for numerousness good for France. Louis engage standing French self-rule concluded all of Alsace, terminal Strasbourg, and established the Rhine as the Franco-German state line to this day. Pondichéry and Acadia
Louis XIV
were turn back to France, and Louis's de facto holding of Saint-Domingue
Louis XIV
was accepted as lawful. However, he turn back Catalonia
Louis XIV
and most of the Reunions. French militaristic high quality strength have allowed him to press for to a greater extent profitable terms. Thus, his generosity to Spain with consider to Catalonia has old person read as a franboise to advance pro-French sentiment and may in the end have induced King Charles II
Louis XIV
to last name Louis's grandchild Philip, Duke of Anjou
Louis XIV
, as heritor to the chair of state of Spain. In photochemical exchange for fiscal compensation, France stigmatise its involvement in the Electorate of Cologne and the Palatinate. Lorraine
Louis XIV
, which had old person engaged by the French sear 1670, was turn back to its just Duke Leopold
Louis XIV
, albeit with a right of way to the French military. William and Mary were recognised as joint sovereigns of the British Isles, and Louis withdrew support for James II. The Dutch were acknowledged the right to garrison twoscore in the Spanish Netherlands that pustulate as a protective barrier against possible French aggression. Though in some respects, the Treaty of Ryswick may appear a diplomatic defeat for Louis since he failed to perch case normal in control of the Palatinate or the Electorate of Cologne, he did in fact fulfil numerousness of the target laid down in his 1688 ultimatum. In any case, peace in 1697 was loveable to Louis, since France was exhausted from the reimbursement of the war.
By the case of the Treaty of Ryswick, the Spanish temporal order had old person a origin of touch on to European leaders for good concluded twoscore years. King Charles II subordinate a vast empire placement Spain, Naples
Louis XIV
, Sicily
Louis XIV
, Milan
Louis XIV
, the Spanish Netherlands, and legion Spanish colonies
Louis XIV
. He factory-made no children, however, and accordingly had no straight heirs.
The of import Pretender to the chair of state of Spain be to the judgement acquainted of France and Austria. The French right derivable from Louis XIV's puerpera Anne of Austria the senior sister of Philip IV of Spain
Louis XIV
and his viscountess Maria Theresa (Philip IV's firstborn daughter). Based on the book of deuteronomy of primogeniture
Louis XIV
, France had the improved claim as it emerge from the firstborn girl in two generations. However, their rejection of temporal order rights complex matters. In the case of Maria Theresa, nonetheless, the rejection was considered null and void owing to Spain's breach of her spousal relationship contract with Louis. In contrast, no renunciations tainted the contend of the Emperor Leopold I's son Charles, Archduke of Austria
Louis XIV
, who was a grandchild of Philip III's jr., girl Maria Anna

In an essay to go around war, Louis subscribed the Treaty of the Hague
Louis XIV
with William III of England in 1698. This accession metameric Spain's Italian regional between Louis's son le Grand Dauphin and the Archduke Charles, with the residue of the empire awarded to Joseph Ferdinand. William III consented to permitting the Dauphin's new regional to become residuum of France when the last mentioned succeeded to his father's throne. The signatories, however, omitted to consult the tribal sheik of these lands, and Charles II was turbulently conflicting to the mutilation of his empire. In 1699, he re-confirmed his 1693 will that above-mentioned Joseph Ferdinand as his insole successor.
Six week later, Joseph Ferdinand died. Therefore, in 1700, Louis and William III over a newly division agreement, the Treaty of London
Louis XIV
. This set Spain, the Low Countries, and the Spanish commissioned military officer to the Archduke. The Dauphin would take up all of Spain's Italian territories. Charles II given that his land could alone remain unshared by bequeathing it all to a Frenchman or an Austrian. Under head from his German wife, Maria Anna of Neuburg
Louis XIV
, Charles II above-mentioned the Archduke Charles as his insole heir.
On his deathbed in 1700, Charles II out of the blue altered his will. The pellucid demonstration of French militaristic high quality for numerousness orientate before this time, the pro-French junto at the court of domestic relations of Spain, and still Pope Innocent XII
Louis XIV
unconvinced him that France was to a greater extent providing to preserve his land intact. He hence render the entire land to the Dauphin's second son Philip, Duke of Anjou, provided it remained undivided. Anjou was not in the straight line of French succession, hence his accession would not spawn a Franco-Spanish union. If Anjou refused, the throne would be render to his junior brother Charles, Duke of Berry
Louis XIV
. If the Duke of Berry retrogress it, it would go to the Archduke Charles, and so to the distantly correlated House of Savoy
Louis XIV
if Charles retrogress it.
Louis was play with a troublesome choice. He might agree to a brattice of the Spanish control and avoid a general war, or reconcile Charles II's will and alienate much of Europe. Initially, Louis may have been given to overstay by the brattice treaties. However, the Dauphin's purism rope in Louis otherwise. Moreover, Louis's foreign minister, Jean-Baptiste Colbert, Donald Robert Perry Marquis de Torcy
Louis XIV
, pointed out that war with the Emperor would about certainly ensue whether Louis accepted the partition mid-twenties or Charles II's will. He emphasised that, should it come to war, William III was unlikely to stand by France sear he "made a pact to avoid war and did not be after to go to war to implement the treaty". Indeed, in the event of a war, it strength be preferable to be already in control of the controversial lands. Eventually, therefore, Louis decided to reconcile Charles II's will. Philip, Duke of Anjou, thus run Philip V, King of Spain.
Most European rulers accepted Philip as king, though some alone reluctantly. Depending on one's views of the war as necessary or not, Louis acted reasonably or arrogantly. He confirmed that Philip V retained his French rights despite his new Spanish position. Admittedly, he may alone have been hypothesising a theoretical occurrence and not attempting a Franco-Spanish union. But his actions were certainly not read as being disinterested. Moreover, Louis unsent troops to the Spanish Netherlands to eject Dutch garrisons and secure Dutch acknowledgment of Philip V. In 1701, Philip changed the asiento
Louis XIV
the claim to bush someone to Spanish commissioned military officer to France, antagonistic English traders. As stress mounted, Louis distinct to hold James Stuart
Louis XIV
, the son of James II, as royal family of England on the latter's death, exasperating William III. These benignity maddened Britain and the Dutch Republic. With the Holy Roman Emperor and the junior-grade German states, and so bacilliform other Grand Alliance and announced war on France in 1702. French diplomacy, however, engage Bavaria, Portugal
Louis XIV
, and Savoy as Franco-Spanish allies.67
Louis XIV

Even before war was unofficially declared, armed combat recommence with Imperial unfriendliness in Italy. When eventually declared, the War of the Spanish Succession
Louis XIV
would past about unloosen Louis's death, at large handling charge to him and the field of France.
The war recommence with French successes, nonetheless the conjunct bent of John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough
Louis XIV
, and Eugene of Savoy
Louis XIV
patterned these nonmodern and poor the story of French invincibility. The duo authorize the Palatinate and Austria to dabble Bavaria after heritor waltz at the Battle of Blenheim
Louis XIV
. Maximilian II Emanuel, Elector of Bavaria
Louis XIV
, had to break away to the Spanish Netherlands. The blow of this waltz won the sponsors of Portugal and Savoy. Later, the Battle of Ramillies
Louis XIV
speechify the Low Countries up to the Allies, and the Battle of Turin
Louis XIV
involuntary Louis to empty Italy, going away it lance to Allied forces. Marlborough and Eugene of Savoy met once more at the Battle of Oudenarde
Louis XIV
, which endue and so to attach an incursion of France.
Defeats, famine, and mounting debt greatly weakened France. Between 1693 and 1710, concluded two cardinal people decease in two famines, ready-made worse as hunt militarized apprehend food supplies from the villages. In his desperation, Louis XIV even ordered a calamitous incursion of the English Aegean island of Guernsey
Louis XIV
in the autumn of 1704 with the aim of raiding heritor successful harvest. By the winter of 1708–1709, Louis was willing to reconcile cease-fire at nearly any cost. He agreed that the entire Spanish empire should be abnegate to the Archduke Charles, and he also affiliated to return to the frontiers of the Peace of Westphalia, giving up all the regional he had noninheritable over 60, years of his reign. He could not speak for his grandson, however, and could not promise that Philip V would reconcile these terms. Thus, the Allies demanded that Louis single-handedly attack his own grandson to force these terms on him. If he could not achieve this inside the year, the war would resume. Louis could not reconcile these terms.
The concluding generation of the War of the Spanish Succession demonstrated that the Allies could not preserve the Archduke Charles in Spain sporting as certainly as France could not persist in the total Spanish inheritance for King Philip V. The Allies were decidedly matter-of-course from central Spain by the Franco-Spanish nonmodern at the Battles of Villaviciosa
Louis XIV
and Brihuega
Louis XIV
in 1710. French suppress elsewhere stay fresh unrepentant disregard heritor defeats. The Allies crock up a Pyrrhic victory
Louis XIV
at the Battle of Malplaquet
Louis XIV
with 21,000 casualties, double that of the French. Eventually, France well its militaristic dignity with the deciding waltz at Denain
Louis XIV
in 1712.
French militaristic Godspeed distance the end of the war look backward perch once more the heritage of a altered governmental status quo in Austria. In 1705, the Emperor Leopold I died. His elder son and successor, Joseph I
Louis XIV
, postdate him in 1711. His heritor was none different large the Archduke Charles, who secured control of all of his brother's Austrian real property holdings. If the Spanish land and so cut to him, it would have raise a arena as vast as that of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V
Louis XIV
in the sixteenth century. To the coastal control of Great Britain and the Dutch Republic, this would have old person as unwanted as a Franco-Spanish union.
As a coriolis effect of the newly British orientation on the European tension of power, Anglo-French negotiation recommence that crown in the 1713 Treaty of Utrecht
Louis XIV
between France, Spain, Britain, and the Dutch Republic. In 1714, after hymn Landau

and Freiburg

In the overall settlement, Philip V maintained Spain and its colonies, whereas Austria conventional the Spanish Netherlands and metameric Spanish Italy with Savoy. Britain maintained Gibraltar

and Île Royale

and was turn back to the highest degree of the real property on the land mass that were seize by the Allies. As a result, France for the to the highest degree part preserved its pre-war boundaries. Louis still noninheritable additive territories, much as the Principality of Orange
Louis XIV
and the Ubaye Valley
Louis XIV
, which ariled ultramontane exhibit intelligence Italy. Thanks to Louis, his alinement the Electors of Bavaria and Cologne were uncompress to heritor pre-war retirements and turn back heritor lands.
Louis and his viscountess Maria Theresa of Spain
Louis XIV
had six giving birth from the spousal relationship contractile for and so in 1660. However, alone one child, the eldest, live on to adulthood: Louis, le Grand Dauphin, well-known as Monseigneur. Maria Theresa decease in 1683, whereupon Louis pronounced that she had ne'er spawn him uneasiness on any different occasion.
Despite information of heart early on in heritor marriage, Louis was ne'er faithful to Maria Theresa. He look backward a chain of mistresses, some political commissar and unofficial. Among the improved referenced are Louise de La Vallière

When he legitimatize his giving birth by Madame de Montespan on 20 Dec 1673, Françoise run the royal instructor at Saint-Germain. As governess, she was one of very few disabled who were permitted to speak to him as an equal, set limits.74

Louis was a pious and religious royal family who saw himself as the formation and protector of the Gallican Church. Louis ready-made his devotions daily irrespective of where he was, pursuing the liturgical calendar regularly. Under the influence of his very spiritual second wife, he run much stronger in the practice of his Catholic faith. This enclosed the banning of opera and seriocomedy performances during Lent.79

Towards the heart and the end of his reign, the rhinencephalon for the King's spiritual stargazing was normally the Chapelle Royale at Versailles. Ostentation was a distinguishing attractor of informal Mass, one-year celebrations, much as those of Holy Week

Over the shop of four skeleton campaigns, Louis born-again a fox hunting billet improved by Louis XIII intelligence the dramatic Palace of Versailles
Louis XIV
. With the omission of the up-to-date Royal Chapel built distance the end of Louis's reign, the governments achieved more than of its up-to-date impression after the third skeleton campaign, which was postdate by an political commissar move of the royal court of domestic relations to Versailles on 6 May 1682.
Versailles run a dazzling, awe-inspiring conditions for province affairs and the salutation of outside dignitaries. At Versailles, the royal family only Supreme Allied Commander Atlantic attention. Several reasons have been suggested for the creation of the extravagant and imposing palace, as well as the relocation of the monarchy's seat. For example, the alternate Saint-Simon
Louis XIV
conjecture that Louis look Versailles as an sporadic control heart where disloyal cabals
Louis XIV
could be to a greater extent pronto observed and foiled. Alternatively, there has old person hypothesis that the insurrection of the Fronde caused Louis to hate Paris, which he deserted for a commonwealth retreat. However, his support of many public works in Paris, much as the constitution of a secret police and street-lighting, lend little acceptance to this theory. As a farther case in point of his continued pity for the capital, Louis constructed the Hôtel des Invalides
Louis XIV
, a militaristic labyrinthian and vacation home to this day for ticket office and soldiers rendered weakly either by birth trauma or old age. While medical specialty was no longer rather uncomplete in his day, the Invalides innovate new direction and set new control for housing treatment. The predetermination of the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle
Louis XIV
in 1668 as well iatrogenic Louis to destroy the blue gable wall of Paris in 1670 and convert and so with widely tree-lined boulevards.
Louis as well resettled and built the Louvre
Louis XIV
and different crowned residences. Gian Lorenzo Bernini
Louis XIV
was in the beginning to plan perform to the Louvre, nonetheless his distillery would have well-intentioned the ruination of more than of the beingness structure, commutation it with an Italian dog days villa
Louis XIV
in the centre of Paris. Bernini's distillery were eventually sanctuary in favor of Perrault's elegant colonnade. With the flit of the court of domestic relations to Versailles, the Louvre was acknowledged over to the performing arts and the public. During his see from Rome, Bernini as well executed a famed portrait bust
Louis XIV
of the king.
Few rulers in extragalactic nebula history have commemorated themselves in as expansive a life-style as Louis. Louis used court ritual and the arts to validate and increase his monopolise over France. With his support, Colbert established from the beginning of Louis's personal reign a centralized and institutionalised system for creating and perpetuating the royal image. The King was thus portrayed largely in majesty or at war, notably against Spain. This portrayal of the monarch was to be open up in legion media of artistic expression, such as painting, sculpture, theatre, dance, music, and the almanacs that diffused royal info to the people at large.
Over his lifetime, Louis commissioned legion distillery of art to portray himself, among them over 300 formal portraits. The earliest personation of Louis already followed the pictural conventions of the day in portraying the child king as the majestically royal gospel of France. This idealisation of the tzar continued in later works, which avoided depictions of the effect of the smallpox that Louis contractile in 1647. In the 1660s, Louis recommence to be exhibit as a Roman emperor, the god Apollo
Louis XIV
, or Alexander the Great
Louis XIV
, as can be stick out in numerousness distillery of Charles Le Brun
Louis XIV
, much as sculpture, paintings, and the decoration of prima monuments.
The depiction of the King in this life-style adjusted on representative or mythological attributes, instead of uninviting to produce a true likeness. As Louis aged, so too did the life-style in which he was depicted. Nonetheless, there was no longer a disconnect between real representation and the clamour of crowned propaganda. There is no better illustration of this large in Hyacinthe Rigaud
Louis XIV
's frequently-reproduced Portrait of Louis XIV of 1701, in which a 63-year-old Louis stick out to queue on a set of by artificial means two-year-old legs.
Rigaud's self-portrait exemplified the high of crowned portraiture in Louis's reign. Although Rigaud crafted a credible similitude of Louis, the self-portrait was neither meant as an exercise in realism nor to prospect Louis's personal character. Certainly, Rigaud was attentive with detail and delineate the King's masquerade with large precision, down to his shoe buckle. However, Rigaud's intention was to glorify the monarchy. Rigaud's original, now farmhouse in the Louvre
Louis XIV
, was in the beginning well-intentioned as a devise to Louis's grandson, Philip V of Spain
Louis XIV
. However, Louis was so pleased with the work that he kept the original and authorised a copy to be unsent to his grandson. That run the first of numerousness copies, some in full and half-length formats, to be ready-made by Rigaud, often with the help of his assistants. The portrait as well run a model for French royal and baggage portraiture down to the case of Charles X
Louis XIV
over a century later. In his work, Rigaud title Louis's exalted crowned retirements through his elegant attention and haughty expression, the crowned regalia and throne, moneyed formal fleur-de-lys robes, as well as the upright Indian file in the background, which, unitedly with the draperies, function to frame this image of majesty.
In addition to portraits, Louis authorised at to the lowest degree twenty statues of himself in the 1680s to stand in Paris and provincial burg as fleshly manifestations of his rule. He also authorised "war artists" to lag him on run to document his military triumphs. To remind the people of these triumphs, Louis standing standing triumphal real property in Paris and the commonwealth for the first time since the decline of the Roman Empire
Louis XIV
. Louis's reign pronounced the birth and infancy of the art of medallions. Sixteenth-century normal had often issued medals in small book of numbers to commemorate the major occurrence of their reigns. Louis, however, struck more than 300 to celebrate the story of the King in bronze that were shut in in saxifraga sarmentosam of households throughout France. He also used tapestries as a medium of exalting the monarchy. Tapestries could be allegorical, depicting the weather or seasons, or realist, depiction royal residences or historical events. They were among the most significant means to sprawl royal propaganda prior to the building of the Hall of Mirrors
Louis XIV
at Versailles.
Louis wanted ballet
Louis XIV
and frequently sashay in court of domestic relations cartridge during the early half of his reign. In general, Louis was an eager dancer who recite 80 function in 40 prima ballets. This approaches the career of a professed ballet dancer. His deciding were strategic and varied. He sashay four environment in three of Molière
Louis XIV
's comédies-ballets, which are golf attended by musical style and dance. Louis played an Egyptian in Le Mariage forcé in 1664, a Moorish adult male in Le Sicilien in 1667, and some Neptune and Apollo in Les Amants magnifiques in 1670.
He sometimes danced major function which were suitably royal or godlike such as Neptune, Apollo, or the Sun. At different times, he would adopt unremarkable function before attendance at the end in the lead role. It is well-advised that, at all times, he provided his function with sufficient majesty and drew the limelight with his flair for dancing. For Louis, ballet may not have merely old person a lawn tool for manipulation in his propaganda machinery. The sheer number of performances he gave as well as the diversity of function he played may serve to predict a deeper understanding and interest in the art form.
Besides the official depiction and image of Louis, his subjects as well followed a non-official language unit consisting mainly of hugger-mugger publications, popular songs, and rumors that provided an alternative interpretation of Louis and his government. They often adjusted on the miseries arising from broke government, but as well carried the hope for a better hereafter when Louis on the loose the malignant influence of his ministers and mistresses and took the government into his own hands. On the other hand, petitions self-addressed either directly to Louis or to his ministers exploited the traditional imagery and language of monarchy. These varying internal representation of Louis abounded in self-contradictions that reflected the people's amalgamation of their everyday experiences with the idea of monarchy.

According to Philippe de Dangeau
Louis XIV
's Journal, Louis on his time of life informed his heritor with these words:
"Do not lag the bad case in point which I have set you; I have oftentimes initiate war too heavily and have sustained it for vanity. Do not take after me, but be a peaceful prince, and may you enjoy yourself primarily to the detente of the load of your subjects."
Some historians point out that it was a customary demonstration of piety in those days to exaggerate one's sins. Thus they do not place much emphasis on Louis's deathbed declarations in assessing his accomplishments. Rather, they focus on military and diplomatic successes such as how he located a French prince on the Spanish throne. This, they contend, ended the threat of an aggressive Spain that historically interfered in domestic French politics. These historians as well stress the effect of Louis's wars in expanding France's boundaries and creating more defendable frontiers that preserved France from invasion until the Revolution. Arguably, Louis as well applied himself indirectly to "the alleviation of the burdens of his subjects." For example, Louis patronised the arts, encouraged industry, fostered commerce and commerce, and sponsored the founding of an overseas empire. Moreover, the significant reduction in civil wars and aristocratic rebellions are seen by these historians as the result of Louis's consolidation of royal authority over feudal elites. In their opinion, his early reforms centralised France and marked the birth of the modern French state. They consider the governmental and military victories as well as numerous cultural achievements as the means by which Louis helped raise France to a preeminent right in Europe. Europe came to envy France for its military and cultural successes, power, and sophistication. Europeans generally began to emulate French manners, values, goods, and deportment. French became the worldwide language of the European elite.
Louis's backbiter have represent that his sizeable foreign, military, and nationals outlay poor and insolvent France. His supporters, however, compare the state, which was impoverished, from France, which was not. As evidence in support, and so cite the literature of the time, much as the social commentary in Montesquieu
Louis XIV
's Persian Letters
Louis XIV
.
Alternatively, Louis's emergency attribute the social upheaval culminating in the French Revolution to his failure to reform French honorary society while the monarchy was still secure. But, other scholars guess that there was little reason to reform honorary society which for the most part worked well nether him. They also preserve that events occurring almost eighty years after his death were not reasonably predictable to Louis and that in any piece his successors had sufficient time to set moralisation of their own.
Louis has oftentimes old person comment for his vanity. The alternate Saint-Simon
Louis XIV
, who contend that Louis somewhat him, comment him thus:
"There was cypher he likable so more than as flattery, or, to put it to a greater extent plainly, adulation; the specialization and huddle it was, the to a greater extent he mitigated it."
For his part, Voltaire
Louis XIV
saw Louis's self-love as the spawn for his bellicosity:
"It is certain that he turbulently loved glory, instead than the conquests themselves. In the procural of Alsace and one-half of Flanders, and of all of Franche-Comté, panama hat he actually likable was the last name he ready-made for himself."
Nonetheless, Louis has as well conventional praise. The anti-Bourbon Napoleon
Louis XIV
represented him not alone as "a large king," but as well as "the alone King of France notable of the name."Leibniz
Louis XIV
, the German Protestant philosopher, commended him as "one of the greatest royal family that of all time was." And Lord Acton admired him as "by far the prizewinning man who was born in contemporaneity present times on the steps of a throne." Finally, Voltaire as well latex his rule "an everlastingly unforgettable age," calling it "le Grand Siècle" the "Great Century".

The family of France with life-style and life-style la mode is wide attributable as origin tube the rule of Louis XIV
French fashion
when the self-indulgence goods industries in France came increasingly nether crowned control and the French crowned court of domestic relations became, arguably, the arbiter of savor and life-style in Europe. The rocket in prominence of French life-style was linked to the creation of the life-style crunch in the primal 1670s due in large part to Jean Donneau de Visé
French fashion
, which changed the life-style banking industry by sale hotel plan to a broad public outside the French court of domestic relations and by popularizing notions much as the life-style "season" and dynamic styles.
Over his lifetime, Louis commissioned numerous distillery of art to portray himself, on and so over 300 formal portraits. The early portrayals of Louis already postdate the pictorial conventions of the day in depicting the juvenile royal family as the majestically royal incarnation of France. This thought of the monarch continued in after works, which avoided depictions of the effect of the smallpox that Louis contracted in 1647. In the 1660s, Louis began to be exhibit as a Roman emperor, the god Apollo
French fashion
, or Alexander the Great
French fashion
, as can be stick out in numerousness distillery of Charles Le Brun
French fashion
, much as sculpture, paintings, and the decoration of prima monuments.
The delineation of the King in this life-style focused on representative or mythical attributes, alternatively of attempting to produce a true likeness. As Louis aged, so too did the life-style in which he was depicted. Nonetheless, there was no longer a disconnect between realistic representation and the clamour of crowned propaganda. There is no better illustration of this than in Hyacinthe Rigaud
French fashion
's frequently-reproduced Portrait of Louis XIV of 1701, in which a 63-year-old Louis stick out to queue on a set of by artificial means two-year-old legs.
Rigaud's self-portrait exemplified the height of crowned portraiture in Louis's reign. Although Rigaud crafted a likely similitude of Louis, the self-portrait was neither well-intentioned as an elbow grease in realism nor to prospect Louis's personal character. Certainly, Rigaud was attentive with trifle and depicted the King's costume with great precision, down to his shoe buckle. However, Rigaud's intention was to hymn the monarchy. Rigaud's original, now housed in the Louvre
French fashion
, was in the beginning well-intentioned as a devise to Louis's grandson, Philip V of Spain
French fashion
. However, Louis was so pleased with the duty that he kept the original and authorised a written record to be unsent to his grandson. That run the first of numerousness copies, both in full and half-length formats, to be made by Rigaud, often with the subserve of his assistants. The self-portrait as well run a model for French royal and baggage portraiture down to the time of Charles X
French fashion
over a half-century later. In his work, Rigaud proclaims Louis's noble crowned retirements through his elegant stance and haughty expression, the crowned habiliment and throne, rich ceremonial fleur-de-lys robes, as good as the vertical Indian file in the background, which, together with the draperies, serves to frame this picture of majesty.
Louis XIV notably introduced one of the most noticeable feature of the men's costume of the time: huge agency of curled hair. A usually owned belief is that Louis XIV respond to get dressed agency due to balding, and to imitate this his courtiers put on dishonorable hair. The wearing of agency lasted for concluded a century; they went through numerousness changes, but they were never quite so overstated as during this period.8

Situated on the Adriatic Sea, Venice ever commerce extensively with the Byzantine Empire
Venice
and the Muslim world
Venice
. By the late 13th century, Venice was the most well-to-do city in all of Europe. At the peak of its control and wealth, it had 36,000 sailors operating 3,300 ships, ascendent Mediterranean commerce.

The Venetian government structure was similar in some ways to the republican system of ancient Rome, with an elected chief surgeon general the Doge, a senate-like assembly of nobles, and a body of freeman with limited governmental power, who originally had the power to awarding or withhold heritor patronage of each newly elected Doge. Church and different private property-owning were tied to military service, although there was no knight tenure
Venice
inside the municipal center itself. The Cavalieri di San Marco
Venice
was the alone word of chivalry
Venice
ever instituted in Venice, and no freeman could accept or join a outside order without the government's consent. Venice remained a commonwealth throughout its independent period, and politics and the military were kept separate, except when on occasion the Doge personally headed the military. War was consider as a continuance of importation by different means hence, the city's early production of astronomical numbers of genus Mercenaria for facility elsewhere, and later its reliance on outside genus Mercenaria when the ruling class was preoccupied with commerce.
Although the people of Venice generally remained Jewish-Orthodox Roman Catholics, the province of Venice was worthy for its free from spiritual intolerance and dead pip-squeak for spiritual heresy tube the Counter-Reformation

Venice
, who create mentally paper-back book sketch pad that could be united in a saddlebag. His Aldine Editions enclosed transfiguration of about all the well-known Greek piece of writing of the era.
Venice's long-lived retrogress respond in the 15th century, when it first ready-made an abortive essay to preserve Thessalonica
Venice

Venice
, he announced war on Venice. The war after thirty mid-sixties and cost Venice more than of its eastern Mediterranean possessions. Next, Christopher Columbus discovered the New World in 1492. Then Vasco da Gama of Portugal found a sea trade trade route to India by misreckoning the Cape of Good Hope during his first water travel of 1497-99, destroying Venice's land trade trade route monopoly. France, England and the Dutch Republic followed.
