22 September 2017 marked the 416th anniversay of Anne of Austria
-
Anne of Austria was a Spanish princess of the House of Habsburg, Queen of France as the wife of Louis XIII and regent for their son, Louis XIV. Accounts of French court life of her era emphasize her difficult marital relations with her husband, her closeness to her son Louis XIV, and her disapproval of her son's marital infidelity to her niece and daughter-in-law Maria Theresa of Spain
-
Anne was betrothed at age eleven to King Louis XIII of France. For fear that Louis XIII would die early, the Spanish court stipulated that she would return to Spain with her dowry if he did die. Anne and Louis, both fourteen years old, were pressured to consummate their marriage in order to forestall any possibility of future annulment, but Louis ignored his bride. Louis's mother, Marie de' Medici, continued to conduct herself as queen of France, without showing any deference to her daughter-in-law
-
In 1635, France declared war on Spain, placing the queen in an untenable position. Her secret correspondence with her brother Philip IV of Spain passed beyond the requirements of sisterly affection. Despite a climate of distrust, the queen became pregnant. Louis XIV was born on 5 September 1638, an event that secured the Bourbon line. At this time, Anne was 37. The official newspaper Gazette de France called the birth "a marvel when it was least expected"
-
Anne was named regent upon her husband's death in spite of her late husband's wishes. With the aid of Pierre Séguier, she had the Parlement de Paris revoke the will of the late king, which would have limited her powers. Their four-year-old son was crowned King Louis XIV of France

When you find out your genetic lineage goes back to the men of the House of Bourbon and realize it's probably why you love bourbon so much so you celebrate with bourbon 🥃 even though the house of bourbon had nothing to do with bourbon #houseofbourbon

Louis XIII (1601-1643), King of France. Shortly before his ninth birthday, Louis became king of France and Navarre after his father Henry IV was assassinated. His mother, Marie de' Medici, acted as regent during his minority. Mismanagement of the kingdom and ceaseless political intrigues by Marie and her Italian favourites led the young king to take power in 1617 by exiling his mother and executing her followers. Louis died at 42 from complications of intestinal tuberculosis. He was succeeded by his son Louis XIV, the Sun King, who ruled France for 72 years #houseofbourbon #louisxiii #louisxiv #france

Consecration of Charles X as king of France in the Cathedral of Reims, by François Gérard. This painting shows the final coronation of the Bourbon Kings, Charles X. Charles is seen sitting atop the throne at the left, and receiving his son, Louis Antoine. Charles X's coronation marked at return to splendor and tradition. He used the Cathedral of Reims for his ceremony, it had not been used since Louis XVI in 1775. Charles' other brother, Louis XVIII, decided to forgo the traditional practice of the coronation, he wanted to avoid controversy. However, Charles was a firm monarchist and insisted on the traditions of the Ancien Régime. So, here we see Charles surrounded by all the trappings of royalty, in the style of his predecessors. Because he wanted a return to the absolute monarchy that served his ancestors, Charles was fairly unpopular. This unpopularity would lead to his deposition in 1830.

La infanta Ana de España (1601-1666) fue comprometida en matrimonio cuando todavía no había nacido 😧. El rey Felipe III de España y su hermana, Isabel Clara Eugenia, habían hecho un pacto: sus respectivos hijos algún día se casarían. Cuando nació Ana, hija de Felipe, Isabel se alarmó porque su hijo, el futuro esposo de la recién nacida, no llegaba.
Ante la imposibilidad de quedar embarazada, Isabel escribió preocupada a Felipe III: "Este marido que no quiere acabar de venir al mundo y yo lo deseo porque no le roben la mujer". El bebé se hizo esperar tanto que la infanta Ana fue comprometida con el futuro rey Luis XIII de Francia a los 10 años. Aunque decepcionada, Isabel se refirió a Ana como "mi nuera" durante el resto de su vida.

On This Day In History
.
10 September 1669
.
Henrietta Maria of France died aged 59
.
.
Brief profile;
.
◼ Henrietta Maria of France (born 25 November 1609) was queen consort of England, as the wife of King Charles I. She was mother of his two immediate successors, Charles II & James II.
.
◼ Henrietta was compelled to seek refuge in France in 1644, following the birth of her youngest daughter, Henrietta, during the height of the First English Civil War. The execution of King Charles in 1649 left her impoverished. She settled in Paris.
.
Later years; .
Henrietta returned to England following the Restoration in October 1660 along with her daughter Princess Henrietta. Henrietta's return was partially prompted by a liaison between the Earl of Clarendon's daughter Anne (Hyde) & Henrietta's son, the Duke of York (Later James II), Anne was pregnant, & the Duke had proposed marrying her. Henrietta still disliked Clarendon, & did not want Anne as a daughter-in-law, but Charles II agreed & despite her efforts the wedding went ahead. She took up residence once more at Somerset House, supported by a generous pension.
.
◼ In 1661, she returned to France & arranged for her youngest daughter, Henrietta to marry the Duke of Orléans, the only brother of Louis XIV. This significantly helped English relations with the French. .
◼ After her daughter's wedding, Henrietta returned to England in 1662 accompanied by her son Charles II & her nephew Prince Rupert. She had intended to remain in England for the rest of her life, but by 1665 was suffering badly from bronchitis, which she blamed on the damp British weather. Henrietta travelled back to France the same year, taking residence at the Hôtel de la Bazinière, the present Hôtel de Chimay in Paris.
.
◼ In August 1669, she saw the birth of her granddaughter Anne Marie d'Orléans; Anne Marie was the maternal grandmother of Louis XV making Henrietta Maria an ancestor of most of today's royal families.

5th September 2017 marks the 379th birthday of Louis XIV
-
Louis XIV, also known as Louis the Great (Louis le Grand) or the Sun King (le Roi Soleil), was a monarch of the House of Bourbon who reigned as King of France from 1643 until his death in 1715. His reign of 72 years and 110 days is the longest recorded of any monarch of a sovereign country in European history. In the age of absolutism in Europe, Louis XIV's France was a leader in the growing centralization of power
-
Louis began his personal rule of France in 1661, after the death of his chief minister, the Italian Cardinal Mazarin. An adherent of the concept of the divine right of kings, which advocates the divine origin of monarchical rule, Louis continued his predecessors' work of creating a centralized state governed from the capital. He sought to eliminate the remnants of feudalism persisting in parts of France and, by compelling many members of the nobility to inhabit his lavish Palace of Versailles, succeeded in pacifying the aristocracy. By these means he became one of the most powerful French monarchs and consolidated a system of absolute monarchical rule in France that endured until the French Revolution
-
During Louis' reign, France was the leading European power, and it fought three major wars: the Franco-Dutch War, the War of the League of Augsburg, and the War of the Spanish Succession. Warfare defined the foreign policy of Louis XIV, and his personality shaped his approach. Impelled "by a mix of commerce, revenge, and pique", Louis sensed that warfare was the ideal way to enhance his glory. In peacetime he concentrated on preparing for the next war. He taught his diplomats that their job was to create tactical and strategic advantages for the French military
