His undoing was the long list of over ambitious wars that he had participated in. His successors Louis XV (1715 74) and Louis XVI (1774 93) also participated in lengthy and costly conflicts. France had suffered defeat in the Seven Years War against Britain (1756 63). Her army in Europe was crushed by the Prussians. The involvement in the American Revolution was for revenge against Britain after the Seven Years War. A fatal weakness in the French absolute monarchy system, was its inability to produce ...
