For the rest of my life and for eternity too probably, I will recall the history test in which I answered that Charles XII after deposing Ausgust the Strong of Saxony gave Poland another king "his name was never famous".

History teacher in red:

"Can't you remember it, Hans?"

Stanislas Leczynski, now I can.

Maternal gramp of the father of Louis XVI, right (if Louis XVI was grandson of Louis XV, that is, as I do seem to recall).
