Louis XIV Asks Riddles I


Esteemed Readers, it is already 2021 & we go on our section of the historical riddles. This time I have chosen a very romantic one as soon St Valentine’s comes. Let it be a good hint for you. Good luck!

“Like the Goddess Pallas I was born armed. I wear a purple mantle & the golden crown, & the sun displays my treasure before your eyes, while Zephirs spread a word about me everywhere. And the most charming aspect of the Heavens create my sovereign beauties that might crown heads of various Queens. But I don’t dare to speak much…as I belong to the race of Gods”.
