Over the next 17 years, Louis, Dauphin of France, and his wife would have eight children, three of whom would go on to become kings of France: Louis XVI, Louis XVIII and Charles X. The dauphin himself would not live to become king. He died of consumption (tuberculosis) on December 20, 1765, at age 36,
while his father was still alive. Upon the death of Louis XV, the French monarchy was at its lowest depths politically, financially and morally. The throne passed to the king's grandson Louis XVI, whose ineptitude would lead to the French Revolution and his execution at the guillotine in 1793.
