When one comes to power he is bound to have an accomplishment or two under his belt, when one holds such a power for 72 years, he is bound to make many an accomplishment.  This is exactly what happened with King Louis XIV.  He had gained enough power in his home country that the parliments lost power to intervine with legislation.  Louis XIV instated protective tariffs to hold more control over exports.  He also efficiently taxed the public, thus gaining wealth for the country.  Not to say that I have ever personally gained more power than a parliment or segnifficantly raised the wealth of a nation, but i presume that they are relatively decent accomplishments.
