Reign of Louis XXII - His Royal Highness, Monseigneur le Dauphin Edit
Charles Antoine XIV was born on the 6th of May, 1982 at the Palais-Royal, in Paris. The birth was unexpected, thus why it was performed at the Palace rather than in a hospital. He was the first child of Louis XXII and his wife, Maria Sofia of Spain, who had some difficulty conceiving for quite a few years.
He had a good upbringing, attending school at Lycée Louis-le-Grand, known for its prestige and good quality of education.
