King & Country

This K&C figure of the great French King portrays him in the military uniform of a Marshal of France leading his army in battle against all enemies… foreign and domestic.

This monarch was King of France from 1643 until his death in 1715. His reign of 72 years and 110 days was the longest of any European ruler in history. During his rule France became the leading European power and regularly asserted its military strength fighting three major continental wars as well as numerous other smaller conflicts inside and outside of France’s borders.

As well as providing his military leadership Louis ⅩⅣ had many other significant achievements which would go on to have a wide influence on the early modern period in the arts, science and architecture of not only France but throughout the rest of Europe.

Among his greatest achievements was the design and construction of The Palace of Versailles, his Royal residence outside Paris.
