The accusation, however, only added to Louis's estrangement from Anne. Still, his military victories over Spain during the war helped to raise Louis's esteem in the eyes of his people.
Despite their difficult relationship, Louis and Anne welcomed a son, Louis XIV, in 1638. The couple had another son, Philippe (who would later become known as Philippe I, Duke of Orléans), two years later. Louis had little time to watch his two sons grow up. He died of tuberculosis on May 14, 1643, at the royal estate Saint-Germain-en-Laye in Paris. Louis XIII was only 41 years old at the time of his death. After his passing, his oldest son, Louis XIV, was crowned king.
