    By , the year that Louis XI, King of France () was born, much of France was ruled by the English. To unify France after the Hundred Years War under his rule ("I am France" he would proclaim to his rebellious vassals) became the idee fixe of Louis' life. The manner in which he largely succeeded in accomplishing this is the subject of Price Range: $ - $ Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick KG (22 November – 14 April ), known as Warwick the Kingmaker, was an English nobleman, administrator, and military son of Richard Neville, 5th Earl of Salisbury, Warwick was the wealthiest and most powerful English peer of his age, with political connections that went beyond the country's : 14 April (aged 42), Barnet, Hertfordshire.

    Courtly French Painting revived during the reign of King Louis XI (), as exemplified by the illuminated religious manuscript Le Livre du coeur d'Amours Espris (, Austrian National Library, Vienna). See: History of Illuminated Manuscripts. Montesquieu had planned a separate study of the long and important reign of Louis XIV (pensée ), who occupied the throne during all of his own formative years (he was twenty-six when the Sun King died). But of equal interest, perhaps, is his ill-fated history of the rather neglected French king Louis XI (r. –83), to whom he appears.
