Louis XIV de France

  • Versailles France

King of France


I was born on September 5, 1638 in Saint-German-en-Laye, France. My mother was Anne of Austria, and my father, from whom I inherited the throne, was Louis XIII. My wife was Maria Theresa of Spain. Maria and I had six children together.

Objective Statement

I believe that I am the perfect candidate for the ruler of Tyranistan. My past experiences have taught me the set of skills necessary to rule a new nation such as Tyranistan, and I believe that my accomplishments represent my skill set. If I were to become the absolute ruler of Tyranistan, I would spend my time defending it with an iron fist while supporting the citizens of inside this nation.


1638 - 1648

Privately Tutored

Palace of Versailles

I was tutored by my godfather, Jules Mazarin, in the ways of ruling a nation. My education was not like others, for instead of learning the ways of the common folk I was taught how to control the lives of the common folk. Jules also helped teach me about things like art, history, and politics.
