Louis XVI
Louis XVI was King of France from 1774 until 1791, when he was overthrown as a result of the French Revolution, and guillotined two years later. 

In the early years of Louis XVI's reign, he was a progressive ruler who encouraged religious tolerance, sought to end serfdom, and attempted to do away with the custom of only taxing peasants and bypassing nobles.
