Internal Struggle- FranceFrance's P.O.V.Internal Struggle- France3 years ago in Short Stories

Je souffre; I am suffering. I haven't been in this much pain since Jeanne d'Arc was killed. Lately, there has been so much rebellion and murder that it makes my head spin. I wouldn't call this a war anymore; it's more of a revolution.
This revolution began when my late boss, Louis XVI, was in power. He was only 15 years old when he became king; then he married Marie Antoinette of Austria. This marriage was a political decision between the Bourbon family and the Hapsburgs of Austria. Marie was the daughter of Maria Theresa, so you would think that they would teach her how to run a country. The problem was that she and Louis were so young and unprepared. The couple loved to spend money, and my boss loved to get into wars. I think he inherited that from his grandfather, King Louis XV. He caused me lose the Seven Years; not to mention I was already in debt from building the palace of Versailles in 1682. I have had a cold for more than twenty years
