    (20) Louis Xl (the prudent) like his father...limited the power of the dukes and barons l...married Margaret of Scotland who died aged 20...in 1451 married charlotte of savoy then 8 years old ...... Perhaps, Louis XI's most significant contribution to the organization of modern state of France, was his development of the system of royal postal roads... It was this network of communications which spread all across France that led to King Louis XI's nickname of the "Universal Spider".[23]

In 1698 a man was imprisoned in the Bastille. This man had been a captive of the government since at least 1687 and for all that time his face had been hidden by a mask. He died in 1703, but rumors about his existence continued to circulate. The prisoner was treated very well, but two musketeers stood by him at all times, ready to kill him if he removed his mask. He ate in the mask, slept in the mask, and eventually died in the mask. Even at the royal court his identity remained a mystery.

The statue of Tarasque de Noves stands as a fearsome tribute to the Celtic deities. Found near a French Cemetery in the nineteenth century, it dates back to around 200 BC, placing it in the La Tene cultural/artistic movement.

Many enjoyed the delights and entertainments of the gardens & grounds of the Palais Royal in Paris. (Home of Louis Philippe, the Duc d'Orléans) The Duc created an arcade of stores and allowed the public to shop and stroll. Whores mingled with noble ladies. Street performers, orators, and inventors entertained crowds. It was the happening place to be in the late 1700s. ~Leah Marie Brown
