When Louis XVI was throned, he was around 20 years of age and very inexperienced. Historians believe that the economic, political, and social state of France was already at rock bottom before Louis XVI came into power. They claim that no matter what he did France would still be at a very poor fragile state. Louis XVI tried his best to make France a better and less tyrannical country. He even supported the French Revolution, in order to make his people happy.
