    Description

    Louis XIV of France, Document Signed "Louis" as king, two pages in French (front and verso) 9.75" x 14.75", October 9, 1698, Fontainebleau. France's Sun King, Louis XIV (1638- 1715), had the longest reign in European history (1643-1715). He brought the absolute monarchy to its height, established a glittering court at Versailles, and fought most of the other European countries in four wars. The early part of his reign was dominated by his chief minister Cardinal Mazarin. In the middle period (1661-85) Louis reigned personally and innovatively, but the last years of his personal rule were beset by problems. Voltaire, the apostle of the Enlightenment, called Louis XIV's reign "Le Grand Siècle" (the Great Century). Fine condition.
