Nationalism and Absolutism

The Sun King was on of the greatest Czars of France.

In addition, there were also personal losses too. King Louis's only rightful son to inherit the throne died in 1711 and his favorite grandson as well not long after. Then he called for his five-year-old great-grandson and advised him to comfort the people, which unhappily he had not.
