The Bourbon Dynasty: Louis XVIII: The Ungrateful ( 1755-1824)
There are so many Louis’ in the Bourbon Dynasty that we’ll call this one Louis Stanislas.
Louis XVIII: He always felt that he would have been a better king than his brother. Louis XVIII was cynical, selfish, opportunistic and wielded a cruel wit. Whatever Louis’ coldness and insensitivity to others, he was a pragmatist and gave France its first parliamentary system.
Louis Stanislas was an opportunist and pragmatist during an era of extremists. He looked like a warm, fuzzy grandpa but he was calculating and cold.
Note: Louis Stanislas, Louis XVIII was the last French king to die while he reigned.
