(1601-1643), had to succeed his father when he was eight years old. His mother acted as regent during Louis’ minority. Mismanagement of the kingdom and ceaseless political intrigues by her and her Italian favorites led the young king to take power in 1617, exiling his mother to Blois and executing her followers. Louis XIII leaned heavily on his Prime Minister Cardinal Richelieu.
