Post Louis XVI upon the visit of the King of Sweden 1784
I just love this story of Louis XVI! Baronne d'Oberkirch's account of this story, "The arrival of the King of Sweden was apparently unxpected..Louis XVI, who was out hunting, had to be fetched back hurriedly. In their haste to change him into the ceremonious dress required for the occasion his valets made a terrible muddle of it, and the Queen, who was entertaining the King of Sweden with her usual charm and dignity, was distressed to see her husband enter with one gold shoe-buckle and one silver, with a velvet waistcoat suitable for mid-winter and his hair powdered only on one side. Both kings, however, laughed heartily at the misadventure, and Gustavus III was delighted with his royal host. 'Louis XVI,' he said later,'is the best and most benevolent prince in existence. His soul radiates serenity. I am filled with admiration.'" :lol: :lol: :lol:

:D :D :D I love that story too . How nice that Louis does not take himself so seriously as to be distressed by that wardrobe malfunction. :) It seems that the swedish king is a very good judge of character .Lovely

I found on Elena Vidal I found some more information on King Gustav's visit in 1784. Apparently Gustavus almost converted to Catholicism because of Louis XVI's kindness.
