How to use "Louis vii" in context?
In 1580, the seventeen-year-old King Louis XIV of France, born the son of a Duke, ascended the throne of the kingdom of France. Although he had many minor titles and feudal holdings, his claim to the French throne was based on his descent from the senior branch of the house of Valois, which had ruled France for centuries. Louis assumed full royal power upon his father's death in 1643. He rapidly expanded the royal domains, resulting in a prosperous and powerful France. In 1665, at the age of forty-two, he married Marie Louise of Savoy, who gave him numerous children and grandchildren.
