King of France Charles VIII


French royalty, the only son of Louis XI. He was 13 when his dad died, leaving him the throne. His sister, Anne of Beaujeau, took the regency and when he was 21, arranged a marriage to Anne of Brittany. He began to attempt to take control of his own rule but his judgment was so poor that he blundered into unwise moves.

Charles VIII died as a result of an accident on 4/08/1498 OS, Amboise, France.
