If you want a military leader for France, go with Francis I, who invented the Siege Train of mobile cannon and bombards, or Henri IV (my favorite) whose pre-battle speech at the Battle of Ivry in March 1560 in its entirety was: "I am your king. You are Frenchmen. There is the enemy. Charge!" Louis XIV's Great Generals were Turenne, Luxembourg, Villars, Berwick - in fact, his ability might be a bonus to getting Great Generals, because the French Army during his reign almost always had good ones. That's often overlooked because at the end of his reign, during the War of the Spanish Succession, the French Army was up against John Churchill, the Duke of Marlborough, and he wiped the floor with them. And by tying the French aristocracy to the throne and the French army, he ensured that the French aristocracy stayed absolutely loyal to the Bourbons right up to the point when they all went to kiss Madame Guillotine together: a Loyalty bonus would not be out of place for Louis. And given the number of second-rate copies of Versailles scattered all over Europe, it would be nice to have a tie-in to his own iconic Wonder, Palace of Versailles, giving both Culture and Diplomatic Bonuses.
