Fact of the Day: Infant King

King John I of France may have technically been King months before he was born as his father died earlier that year. Ironically the new king only lived for about five days.

    The French 'Bourbons" were a strange kettle of fish.

    1. Maybe John. the second ???????????????
      I am sure the Bourbons didn't immediately
      disappear - the Guillotine was not then used,
      but existed. Learn some history, Moron!
