1682 · The Palace of Versailles

The Palace of Versailles was originally known as a hunting log and retreat for Louis XII. When Louis XIV took over he moved his family into it. After he died the palace was abandoned. It has since been turned into a museum.
1700 · French Monarchy

Age 30

The French monarchy started way before the 1700s, but for the most part the major events of history took place during this time before the French Revolution started. This was known as the Bourbon Dynasty. Louis XIV the Great, Louis XV the Beloved, Louis XVI the Restorer of French Liberty, and Louis XVII all reigned during this time.

Name Meaning

French: from a variant spelling of pourceau ‘piglet’, presumably an unflattering nickname for a dirty or disgusting man. This name is found chiefly in LA.
