Who was the last french king and when did he die?

Officially, Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. They were the last real King and Queen of France. After the Napoleonic period (who turned France into an empire), the French monarchy was restored for some time, but only as a constitutional monarchy, meaning there were a King and Queen of France, but only in name. It was purely a title and they had no real reigning power. The last king and queen of that constitutional monarchy were Louis Philippe I and Maria Amalia (Marie Antoinette's niece).

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. After him, Napoleon Bonaparte crowned himself emperor of France, so then France was an empire. After Napoleon, the monarchy in France was restored, and Louis XVIII (a.k.a. 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.
