Looking up dates of changes to the UK suicide laws, I kept coming across statements on this topic:

"Tony Scott was British. In 1670, at common law (English), Louis XIV made suicide illegal as a criminal act with the person’s property confiscated and the person’s body dragged face down through the streets."

That is, not the Tony Scott topic, but the topic of Louis XIV having created a decree in English law about how to deal with suicide victims.

Um, that's Louis XIV *OF FRANCE* having created a decree in English law about how to deal with suicide victims.

Was this started by an idiot on wikipedia, or something?
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
