Louis XIV (1638 – 1715), born Louis-Dieudonné de France and also known as Louis the Great or the Sun King, was King of France and Navarre from 1643 until his death. He was the son of Louis XIII.


In May 1685, Louis XIV passed a decree dictating how slaves were to be treated and further details of the trade. It was enacted in March 1687 and remained in effect until 1789.[1]

An unidentified prisoner held in various French prisons during his reign was rumored to be Louis XIV's illegitimate son.[2] Also during his time as king, he composed and compiled a set of memoirs.[3]

Louis' reign of 72 years and 110 days is the longest of any monarch of a major country in European history.


By 1794, his memoir had been stolen by a cult dedicated to his alleged son. It was hidden underground in Franciade where the cult awaited the return of the King. In August, the Assassin Arno Dorian infiltrated the cult, killing its members. Finding the memoirs, Arno surmised that Louis XIV would not be returning any time soon and left the memoirs.[3]

In 2012, the Assassin Clay Kaczmarek included the painting of Louis XIV by Charles Le Brun in one of the Glyphs inside the Animus for Desmond Miles to find. Desmond solved this puzzle, which was part of a set titled "Instruments of Power" where Louis XIV was excluded from the list of historical individuals revealed by Clay to have wielded a Staff of Eden.[4]
