King Louis XIV 1643-1715

"The Sun King"

 

1600s French 1 Liard Louis XIV

1655-1658 & 1694-1698

 

The reign of LOUIS XIV is the longest and most glorious in the history of France. Son of Louis XIII and Anne of Austria, born September 5, 1638, the third Bourbon king ascended the throne in 1643 and remained there for seventy-three years. He died on 1 September 1715, aged seventy-seven years. Under Louis XIV France participated in: Thirty Years' War, ended with the Empire in 1648, with Spain only in 1659, War of Devolution (1667-1668), Dutch War (1672-1678), war Spain (1684), War of the League of Augsburg (1688-1697), and War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1713). Louis XIV and his ministers gave perfection to the monarchical construction: the law is reformed, the nobility submitted provinces subdued heresy reversed, artists and writers are at the service of the royal power. Lex uno una sub sole "one law under one sun" everything must revolve around the sun master. Therein lies the real triumph of this prince for France and for Europe for the next century and for centuries to come, to contemporaries as for posterity, he was and remains the king by excellence. Coins and medals, which render us Jovian profile great monarch, will participate in this and this success. LOUIS XIV brought their attention: ‘Le grand Siècle’ is known as the greatest century of numismatics.
