Louis XX on Henri IV
One of the two leading claimants to the French throne, Louis "XX" Duke of Anjou, is petitioning the government of the French Republic that the head of his ancestor Henri IV (one of France's most popular kings) be reunited with its body at the basilica of Saint-Denis. A worthy gesture, to be sure, but how much more glorious it would be to reunite France with its ancient monarchy. Vive le Roi!
