1682 · The Palace of Versailles

Age 29

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 47

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

German and Jewish (Ashkenazic): status name for a peasant or nickname meaning ‘neighbor’, ‘fellow citizen’, from Middle High German (ge)būr, Middle Low German būr, denoting an occupant of a būr, a small dwelling or building. Compare Old English būr, modern English bower. This word later fell together with Middle High German būwære, an agent noun from Old High German būan ‘to cultivate’, later also (at first in Low German dialects) ‘to build’. The German surname thus has two possible senses: ‘peasant’ and ‘neighbor’, ‘fellow citizen’. The precise meaning of the Jewish surname, which is of later formation, is unclear. This surname is also found elsewhere in central and eastern Europe, for example in Slovenia, where it may also be a translation of Kmet .
