King of France Louis XIII


French royalty, the firstborn of Henry IV and Marie de Medici, the brother-in-law of Charles I of Great Britain. In 1615 he married Anna of Austria, the daughter of Philip III of Spain and Margaret of Austria; she was five days older than he. It was a not a happy union but nonetheless produced two sons, in 1638 and 1640, the future Louis XIV and Philippe, Duc De'Anjou..

His father was assassinated in 1610 and his mother seized the power of the Regent. He and his mother were continually at cross-purposes and at odds. King Louis died 5/14/1643, St. Germain en Laye, France.
