Which Louis?[edit]

"Pragmatic Sanction of St. Louis X"? The canonized king of France is Louis IX, not Louis X. I'd guess that "St." is right and "X" is wrong, but could someone sort this out definitively? Thanks. -- Jmabel | Talk 07:18, Mar 4, 2005 (UTC)

Pragmatic Sanction of 1713 and Maria Theresa[edit]

"When used as a proper noun, not otherwise qualified, it usually refers to the Pragmatic Sanction of 1713, a legal mechanism designed to ensure that the Austrian throne and Habsburg lands would be inherited by Emperor Charles VI's daughter, Maria Theresa."

This paragraph is quite funny and somewhat misleading I would say. While it is quite true that Maria Theresa's succession on the Austrian throne was based on the Pragmatic Sanction of 1713, it can't be said that the Pragmatic Sanction of 1713 was "designed to ensure that the Austrian throne and Habsburg lands would be inherited by Emperor Charles VI's daughter, Maria Theresa" as she was born only some four years later. 88.101.177.121 (talk) 00:06, 26 April 2010 (UTC)Jan Cervenka
