Charles V. of France





The last words of this patriotic monarch are
memorable for the noble moral for kings which they contain. "I have aimed

at justice," said he to those around him; "but what king can be certain

that he has always followed it? Perhaps I have done much evil of which I am

ignorant. Frenchmen! who now hear me, I address myself in the presence of

the Supreme Being to you. _I find that kings are happy but in this--that

they have the power of doing good_."
