Well educated and with good intentions, he was confounded by indecision.

Louis XVI (1754-1793) lost control of the country in 1789 when the middle classes seized power and created a popular National Assembly. The assembly would, during the following three years, “cleanse” the nation of all special privilege, nobility, and inequities, forever ending the divine right of kings in France. Had Louis possessed a more vigorous nature and self-confidence, he could have saved his crown and survived the constitutional crisis.
