Louis XIV's Heart Used as Food




Louis XIV was king of France for over seventy-two years, the longest
reign in European history. He ushered in a new era of power and
prosperity for the county and defined the term Absolute Monarch.


He was certainly an Absolute Something.

For some reason, during the French Revolution, peasants broke into
the Royal Crypt and stole Louis' mummified heart. We don't know their
motives--they're French. Somehow, despite all the rioting and pitchforks
and cheese-eating, the heart survived intact and made its way to
England.

Eventually it ended up in the hands of the Reverend William Buckland.
Of course, Buckland recognized what a rare and precious piece of
history he possessed, and donated it to the Museum of-

-Oh wait, no, actually he ate it.


What were they thinking?

Buckland had a thing for eating really exotic cuisine. Among the more
interesting things he had dined on were elephant trunk and roast
giraffe. By the time the French king's heart came into his possession
his palate was pretty jaded. What better to revive the taste buds than
some cannibalism?

Oh and it seemed the Reverend had become concerned there might not
actually be an afterlife after all, and decided eating a long dead
king's heart would help him become immortal. For some fucking reason.
