Character description

Louis XIV (5 September 1638 – 1 September 1715), known as the Sun King, was King of France and of Navarre. His queen consort was his first cousin, Maria Theresa of Spain, daughter of King Philip IV and Elisabeth of France. Although never announced, he had a morganatic second marriage to Françoise d'Aubigné, Marquise de Maintenon (27 November 1635 – 15 April 1719). Louis outlived many of his descendants and was succeeded by his five-year-old great-great-grandson, who became Louis XV.
