  Louis VI
Louis VI, King of France, surnamed "the Fat", was the son of Philippe I of France and Bertha of Holland.
In 1098 Louis was made a knight, and about the same time was associated with his father in the government, which the growing infirmities of Philippe left more and more to his son, in spite of the opposition of Bertrada, the queen, whose criminal union with Philippe had brought the anathema of the church.
Étienne de Garlande, whom Louis raised from obscurity to be archdeacon of Notre Dame at Paris, chancellor and seneschal of France, was all-powerful with the king from 1108 to 1127.

 Louis XIV of France at AllExperts
Louis XIV increased the power and influence of France in Europe, fighting three major wars—the Franco-Dutch War, the War of the League of Augsburg, and the War of the Spanish Succession—and two minor conflicts—the War of Devolution, and the War of the Reunions.
Louis XIV considered its construction one of the greatest achievements of his reign, which, along with the Chateau de Versailles, is one of the largest and most extravagant monuments in Europe, extolling a king and his country.
Thus Louis XIV's five-year-old great-grandson Louis, Duc d'Anjou, the younger son of the Duc de Bourgogne and Dauphin upon the death of his grandfather, father and elder brother, succeeded to the throne and was to reign as Louis XV of France.
