King Louis XIII


Tournois Coin (DOUBLE)


Louis XIII double tournois 


Son of Henry IV and Marie de Medici, LOUIS XIII was born 1601. King in 1610, he first reigned under the regency of his mother. With the 1630s came a "revolution in the art of governing" corresponding to the Ministry from Richelieu and the entry of France into the Thirty Years War. In the context of the "military revolution" of the seventeenth century. The war effort justified and imposed an all-powerful state, led by Louis XIII. The exercise of power gained in efficiency, with the organization of the State Council and the institution of stewards. Power also handed brutality: evoking the early 1630s, Omer Talon wrote that "the things we wanted by authority and not by concert". LOUIS XIII left to the Grand Cardinal while maintaining the direction of armies, he acted with bravery (Siege of La Rochelle 1627 and conquest of Roussillon 1642). Louis XIII died in 1643. He had two son LOUIS XIV and Philippe d'Orléans.
