Early Modern France
The KINGDOM OF FRANCE in the EARLY MODERN PERIOD , from the Renaissance (circa 1500–1550) to the Revolution (1789–1804), was a monarchy ruled by the House of Bourbon (a Capetian cadet branch ).

The period is dominated by the figure of the "Sun King", Louis XIV (his reign of 1643–1715 being one of the longest in history ), who managed to eliminate the remnants of medieval feudalism and established a centralized state under an absolute monarch , a system that would endure until the French Revolution and beyond
