  2. Louis XIV: God's manifestation on Earth
  3. 'As the king wishes, so wishes the law'

While many monarchs have had the experience of wielding an enormous amount of power, few of them held power that went unchecked. Even at the zenith of their strength, many monarchs had to answer to a parliament, the legal traditions of the land, noblemen, as well as the Pope in Rome. To have full sovereignty is often only a dream, and a monarch who came extraordinarily close to achieving such a dream is King Louis XIV of France. Because of various political maneuvers, the sentiment of the times, and a great deal of luck, Louis XIV was able to reign unchallenged as one of the most powerful monarchs in modern history.
