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.

History brings out the bad and the good.
The French 'Bourbons" were a strange kettle of fish.
Such a pity Adam that your viewers are so limited in
history - even US history????????????????????????????

oh, noes! Who took over after him?

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!
