    Yes, we do know these facts because we can look them up on a Wikipedia too. Next time make a segment about things we don't know.

    These people are despicable, THEIVES of the people, full of covetiousness, stealing for their debauchery over INDULENCE! ILLEGITIMATE CHILDREN? WHAT A WHORE, and ADULTERER, YOU PEOPLE HERE THAT SAY THIS IS MY FAVORITE, YOU KNOW NOTHING! Wake up, do your homework. So look at their judgement right now til this day…. hummmm… gone completely gone! No continuance of their lineage, none, gone! That's a harsh judgement, but with a massage! You do what he did, follow what he did guaranteed you will end up the same! History repeats itself. Look at photos history of Sodom and Gomorrah same thing. Grow a brain. Connect the dots. The earth does not revolve around the sun.That's the Catholic/Jesuit version preparing you for the ALIEN AGENDA. Better find out. I'am not impressed with this family these kings at all. I'am an artist myself the only good thing I have to say of these kings they had exquisite taste for decorating! That ability I recognize. So the curse continues, Louisiana is debauchery, vomit on the streets you can smell nakedness, sinful drunkenness!

    I know this makes me sound like a weenie but I no longer enjoy the beauty of Versailles. The true story of Louie authorizing the whipping of that woman who lost her husband and son and subsequently her mind in the construction of his Palace is what I see when I look at the building. The pleading cries of Louise D'lavalliere and Louie's indifference toward her is what I hear when I hear the word Versailles. I know this makes me sound like a swishy wet sack. It's just the way I feel now. I hate it too but can't help it.

    It's been mentioned already, but I would like to repeat that the Duc Philippe, his brother, should have been acknowledged.

    Those "unknowned facts" you are presenting are very basic and very well knowned facts. You are reading a history book for the 4th graders and your reading skills sucks.
