9780300060775: Louis XVI

The reign of Louis XVI, which ended with the guillotining of Louis and his wife, Marie Antoinette, in 1793, is a dramatic and crucial part of French history. This book presents the first complete and authoritative biography of Louis XVI, a poignant tale that recounts how the King's stature grew as his power declined.

From Library Journal:

This is not a general life-and-times biography of the man who was king of France from 1774 to 1792. The reader learns little of France outside Versailles and Paris. Indeed, in several chapters more space is given to such royal ministers as Maurepas, Necker, and Vergennes than to the king himself. What Hardman (history emeritus, Univ. of Edinburgh) offers, however, is a masterful analysis of the workings of the royal government in the waning years of the Old Regime and early years of the French Revolution. The research in archival sources is impressive. Hardman's portrait of the king reinforces the work of other recent historians. Louis XVI was not stupid or lazy, although he could be quiet or indecisive. Hardman convincingly demonstrates that by 1789 Louis XVI favored a constitutional monarchy and cooperation with the Third Estate. His failure to communicate these feelings to the Estates General in the spring of 1789 was a tragic error. For academic libraries.
