A man small in stature and limited ambition.

Louis XIII (1601-1643; reigned 1610-1643) succeeded his father, Henry IV, under the regency of his mother, Marie de Medici. Melancholy and retiring by nature, Louis XIII gave full support to Cardinal Richelieu, who dominated Louis’ reign. The birth of two sons was a surprise, considering his lack of interest in women and neglect of his queen, Anne.
