Louis XIV Asks Riddles II

Esteemed Readers,

here are two short. – and I hope not to difficult, – new riddles, prepared by His Majesty :-):


White in the beginning, then I become black. All that is because of my ardour that burns in my chest cruelly. I’m searched, I’m fled according to somebody’s wish. I possess nothing but infertile soil, but if people stayed without my helpful service, they would cry in their sad houses.


All the time I’m in danger and any thought insults me. Against any law of Nature, that you have hardly ever understood, I’m condemned to a torture being hung.

    Hi Maria, I am commenting from my new WP blog Bake and Write. I am absolutely hopeless at riddles and can’t think of an answer to either of these. I shall reflect on them further during the day.

      Dear Robbie, don’t give up! At least the first one is not difficult: it’s an object…a place in the past, that there was in any house! And this very place was very important for people… And when it was new it was white, but then…it became black…after many uses. Good luck!
