Louis XIV Asks Riddles I

Having debunked some important myths about the King, we deserve some rest, Esteemed Readers. So, let’s try to guess a new 17th century riddle, this time prepared by His Majesty:

  • I’m like a current that flows very fast.
  • I disappear & reappear from myself.
  • I’m the Tyrant & the King of Universe
  • as well I’m a father & a killer of all the humans.
  • In vain powers of Milon & Alcide tried to resist me.
  • Superior Caesers submit my laws.
  • I start only those things that Heaven send me.
  • Everything fades in front of my force
  • by power or by love.
  • The Moon & the Sun create Day & Night
  • To delay my superior power.
  • The firstborn of Nature & the Minister of force,
  • I rule in the world Life & Death.
  • And like a Phenix I’m reborn in myself. 
  • Who am I?

    Personcina nonda poco il nostro amico…..

  2. Definitely not the kind of “person” I’d like to meet 🙂
    Is it California’s dreaded destroyer of forests and homes – Fire?

  3. Goodness, Maria, I really don’t have a clue. I would have said Death but that is mentioned in this riddle so I doubt it.
