    1700 · French Monarchy

    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

    A perennially popular given name, of Continental Germanic origin, from haim ‘home’ + rīc ‘power, ruler’. It was an Old French name, adopted by the Normans and introduced by them to Britain. It has been borne by eight kings of England. Not until the 17th century did the form Henry (as opposed to Harry ) become the standard vernacular form, mainly under the influence of the Latin form Henricus and French Henri.
