Birthday of Louis XV King of France

15 February 1710

Louis XV (15 February 1710 - 10 May 1774) ruled as King of France and of Navarre from 1 September 1715 until his death. Louis XV was a member of the House of Bourbon. He enjoyed a favorable reputation at the beginning of his reign. In time, the debauchery of his court and the cession of New France led Louis to become one of the most unpopular kings in the history of France. His ill-advised financial policies weakened the monarchy and arguably led to the French Revolution which broke out 15 years after his death.
