Louis XVI is one of the famous monarchs of the 18th century who went on to earn a place in the books of world history. The king was primarily known for being eloquent and a linguist since a really young age and having a grip on languages such as Italian and English. He was crowned the supreme of France as a teenager and had to deal with a great responsibility of stabilizing the nation's economy. Though initially criticized for his inefficient administration, Louis went on to silence his critics with his perfectly strategized moves. Taking all challenges into his stride, he managed to solve these problems and become an efficient leader. One of the most path breaking accomplishments of his time was offering his subjects the liberty of following the religion of their choice, which was considered an unorthodox move for a ruler during that time. As a leader of his country, Louis XVI's sole aim was to earn the love and respect of his subjects through his administration. Unfortunately, the king was toppled by revolutionaries who wanted to put an end to monarchy and pave the way for a democracy. Read on to know more about his life, achievements and works.
