L'etat c'est moi[edit]

The famous quote "L'etat c'est moi" ("I am the state") redirects to this article, but the article contains no mention of it. CuriousOliver (talk) 11:48, 9 October 2015 (UTC)

Many Grammatical Issues[edit]

I'm having a hard time reading this post, as there are so many grammatical mistakes. I made a couple of changes to the top fifth of the page, but it really needs a thorough read through to make it more readable. There are many issues with the use of plurals (adding or omitting them incorrectly), lack of the use of possessives where needed, and run-on sentences, just to name a few.

I've included below just one of the many problem sentences:

The best example of Anne statesmanship and the partial change in her heart towards her country of birth Spain, is seen in her keeping of one of Richelieu men the chancellor of France Pierre Séguier in his post; in spite of the fact that Séguier was the person who interrogated her, treating her like a "common criminal" as she herself described her treatment in 1637 following the discovery that she was giving military secrets and informations to Spain.

Children and wife.[edit]

Firstly, his illegitimate daughter Marie Anne was better known as the Princess of Conti than as the Duchess of La Vallière. Louis himself organised the marriage between Marie Anne and the Prince of Conti in 1680 himself. Plus. Louis' wife was ACTUALLY Maria Theresa of AUSTRIA. So my edits are in fact correct. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.149.139.54 (talk) 12:18, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

L'etat c'est moi: Source?[edit]

Currently, under the quotes section, it is stated that Louis XIV said "I am the state" (l'état, c'est moi),[106]. However, source 106 is simply a link to Yahoo Answers. Yahoo Answers is absolutely not a reliable source — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.61.21.178 (talk) 14:25, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

I fixed it & cited a RS = Jay Caplan (1999). In the King's Wake: Post-Absolutist Culture in France. p. 17. , which says it's a legend and explains its meaning. Rjensen (talk) 14:36, 22 February 2016 (UTC)
