Abstract

Louis XIV never hoped to conquer the entire European land mass, nor did he seek to impose French culture on the peoples who came under his power. His aims were clearly more modest than those of the more national conquerors seen in Europe since Napoleon, but they were nevertheless grandiose for the seventeenth century. Only the Hapsburgs had previously sent soldiers all over Europe for such high stakes; Louis XIV was the heir to Philip II of Spain and Emperor Ferdinand II in more than blood.
