We talked about the vingtieme today in Louis XV (it's technically a proper noun, but they don't like to capitalize those things here). It's this tax that happened in France right after the War of the Austrian Succession. Maaaayyybe, if France hadn't cared so much about having the Bourbons on the thrones of France AND Spain at the same time/AUSTRIA (or...whatever the War of Austrian Succession was actually about)/helping us out when we needed it during our little revolution, then they wouldn't have run into so much trouble from angry French people in 1789. Even I could have foreseen that mess coming. But it's too late for that now.
ALSO, I got my first "test" back in Louis XV! I am very pleased with my grade. Considering that I 1) only answered 2 out of the 3 questions, 2) Chose not to answer them in the correct format for time's sake, 3) lied about certain facts in French history, 4) definitely used my French articles and genders incorrectly and 5) wrote really illegibly so that he wouldn't be able to tell I had used my French articles and genders incorrectly, I still got a 4 out of 20! Réussite!
