Louis XIV - MSN Encarta (922 words)
Louis founded the academies of Painting and Sculpture (1655), Science (1666), and Architecture (1671), and in 1680 he established the Comédie Française.
After Queen Marie-Thérèse's death in 1683, Louis secretly married a pious and previously obscure woman, Françoise d'Aubigné, known as Madame de Maintenon; she urged him to suppress the immorality that was rife at his court.
Louis XIV was never able to resolve the tensions between a governing elite committed to efficiency and a society organized by rank, birth, and privilege, which explains many of the failures of his reign.
