Officially, Louis XVI was the last real King of France of the old regime. He was the last King of France with actual reigning power.

Comte de Provence, the bother of Louis XVI) became King of France, but he had no reigning power, being only a King in name since the old regime had been abolished in 1792. After him, his brother became King, King Charles X (a.k.a. Comte de Artois, another brother of Louis XVI). After him, Louis Philippe (the cousin of King Charles X) became King. After them, France turned into a Republic and had presidents.

Comte Mede de Sivrac?

Date of Deathof Mede de SivracMede de Sivrac invented the bicycle in 1791. Nothing else is known about the man, not even when he was born or died. This is probably because he never lived.The bicycle was invented in 1817 by a German called Karl Drais. This early version was known as a Draisienne. a French name because it was really the French who developed the invention during the 19th century.By the end of the century the Germans had built their Empire, defeated France in the war of 1870 and taken two provinces, alsace and lorraine, away from France. When, in 1891, a frenchman, Baudry de Saunier, wrote a History of the Bicycle, he couldn't bear to think that this very French object had been invented by a German.So he invented Mede de Sivrac, the French inventor of the bicycle. His machine was called the celerifere, and it was a bit like the Draisienne, with no pedal, no brakes, and - uniquely - no steering. As (unsurprisingly) French museums had no examples of this machine, a few copies were made up from the 'original plans'. The thing was totally impractical.In fact, there was a M. Sievrac who patented a 'Celerifere' in 1817; but this was a horse-drawn vehicle.French Wikipedia says that de Saunier's deception was discovered quite recently; but it gives no detailed source for this information. In fact, the revelation was made by Jacques Seray in his book 'Deux roues - La véritable histoire du vélo' Ed. du Rouergue, 1988.


What is one invention made in Germany?

The earliest bicycle was a wooden scooter-like contraption called a celerifere; it was invented about 1790 by Comte Mede de Sivrac of France. In 1816, Baron Karl von Drais de Sauerbrun, of Germany, invented a model with a steering bar attached to the front wheel, which he called a Draisienne. It has two wheels (of the same size), and the rider sat between the two wheels, but there were no pedals; to move, you had to propel the bicycle forward using your feet (a bit like a scooter). He exhibited his bicycle in Paris on April 6, 1818.
