Elizabeth I was born in 1633 and ruled from 1558-1603, Louis XIV was born in 1638 and ruled from 1643-1715, Phillip II was born in 1527 and ruled from 1556-1598.

Louis XIV ruled France from 1643-1715, he was a protestant but he became Catholic because the majority of France was Catholic, he was very interested of being king, he wanted people to think that he was a person who cared a lot about his country   and about his people. Phillip II ruled from 1556-1598, he had a lot of palaces, he was a selfish king.

Louis XIV reigned for 72 years, he was the greatest ruler France ever had, he was a greater ruler than Elizabeth I.
