King Louis the sun King

The reign of France's Louis XIV (1638-1718) known as the sun King, lasted for 72 years, longer than that of any other known European sovereign. In time he transformed the monarchy ushered in a golden age of art and literature presided over a dazzling royal court at Versailles Annexed key territories and established he's country as the dominant European power.

What I think

I think the whole idea of having a King is stupid because just having one person to tell millions of others what to do is destined for failure. Although King Louis did try his best to become the sun King and remain the sun King for a very long time I feel with a little help he would have been the greatest ruler of all time.
