  • Notes 
    • King of France (1715-1774).
      Louis XV, the son of the Duke of Burgundy and Marie-Adelaide of Savoy, was the great-grandson of Louis XIV whom he succeeded in 1715 at the age of five. Philippe d'Orleans acted as Regent, assisted by Cardinal Dubois. The first years of the Regency saw general reaction against Louis XIV's policy of absolute monarchy - reform of government councils and founding of the Polysynodie, re-­establishment of the Parliament's right of remonstrance, return of the Regent to Paris and development of a degree of moral laxity. In 1718, given the financial dif­ficulties and the carelessness of the councils, the Regent returned to a more autho­ritarian policy, ended the Polysynodie and called upon the services of Law. The system instigated by this financiers based on a Western Company for the exploita­tion of Louisiana, led to the setting up of a state bank but feverish speculation led to its eventual downfall and was deeply traumatic for French public opinion (1720). in external affairs, the Regent, who feared that Philip V of Spain would lay claim to the French throne, allied himself with England and Holland and declared war on Spain in 1719. France was quickly victorious and Philip V gave up his claim. The Regent died in 1723 just after Louis X\t had been declared to have come of age, but the monarch was happy to leave the government of the country in the hands of the Duke of Bourbon who arranged the king's marriage to Maria Leczinska, the daughter of the dethroned King of Poland (1725). Louis XV dis­missed Bourbon in 1726 and replaced him with Cardinal Fleury who directed affairs of State until 1743. He implemented a moderate policy and stringent eco­nomies in order to redress the State's finances and bring prosperity back to the kingdom but he was also faced with a return of parliamentary unrest, especially in the matter of religion. Despite his desire for peace, Fleury had to involve France in the War of Polish Succession in order to support the king's father-in-law (1733­1738). It was a failure but Stanislaus Leczinska was granted a life interest in Lorraine. When Fleury died in 1743, Louis XV announced his intention of gover­ning by himself. In fact he never really undertook his work as king and left his ministers to govern, maintaining rivalries, bowing to the influence of his mistres­ses (e.g. Madame de Pompadour) and spending his time in pleasurable pursuits.
      The king took the country into the War of Austrian Succession in 1741 but, despite a number of victories, handed back all the territories he had conquered when he signed the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle (l748). From 1749 onwards, the financial situation worsened again and the Controller-General, Machaut d'Arnouville, created a tax called "le vingt~eme" (one-twentieth of the value of all possessions). The reign was entering its second phase. The king was no longer "Well Beloved", the critical new ideas of the Age of Enlightenment were beginning to gain ground Louis XV condemned the Encyclopaedia) and the parliaments again opposed the king's wishes (quarrel over confessional "tickets", 1752-1756). Having negotiated a reversal of alliances, the king took the country into another conflict, the Seven Years' War (1756-1763) which was disastrous for France. The country was forced to hand almost all its colonial empire over to England. The end of Louis XV's reign was marked by further parliamentary unrest, which the king tried to end by supporting Maupeou's judicial reform (1771). He left a country that was exsanguinated and a greatly weakened monarchy. [t was during his reign that the country was extended by two new provinces - Lorraine in 1766 and Corsica in 1768. Louis XV's marriage to Maria Leczinska brought him two sons, both of whom predeceased him, and it was his grandson, Louis XVI who succeeded him when he died in 1774.
