King Louis XIV (1638 - 1715) is undoubtedly the most outstanding and in many respects the most remarkable French ruler of the Ancien Régime. He not only largely completed the process of consolidation and expansion of monarchical"absolutism", but also the European state system - at least for a few decades- its hegemonic policies imposed. He is regarded as the embodiment of the absolute monarch, whose style of rule, court and self-portrayal were seen as exemplary and worthy of imitation by not a few princes of his time.
