Louis XIV of France, also known as Louis the Great or the Sun King, was the King of France from 1643 until his death in 1715. A monarch of the House of Bourbon, he was the son of the French King Louis XIII and his Spanish Queen, Anne of Austria. His father died when Louis was just a young child, and he succeeded his father in 1643 at the age of four years and eight months. His mother ruled as a regent on his behalf for the next few years though it was the Chief Minister Cardinal Jules Mazarin who held the true power throughout the young king’s early reign. It was only after the death of the chief minister in 1661 that Louis could begin his independent rule. As the King, he opted to continue some of his predecessor’s policies regarding the governance and sought to eliminate feudalism from all parts of France. He proved to be a capable and powerful King and led his country in three major wars: the Franco-Dutch War, the War of the League of Augsburg, and the War of the Spanish Succession. Having ascended to the throne at such an early age, he had a long reign; in fact, his reign of 72 years and 110 days is the longest of any monarch of a major country in European history
