The Bourbon Dynasty: Louis, le Grand Dauphin: The Damaged ( 1661-1711)

$ 750.00

Louis was the son of Louis XIV and thus the Grand Dauphin.

His tutors beat him and so he grew up with a horror of books and learning.

Louis was a tall, fat and blonde. He was lazy and fairly dull. His greatest hobby was hunting wolves, which he eliminated from the Ile de France. However, he was good natured and brave in battle.

Note: Louis was attracted to ugly women. In a court famous for its beauties this was considered very unusual.
