"I knew we were all in trouble when Rip made us put on blouses just to save the King of France."
Mick Rory reflects on his premonition to Oliver Queen and Nate Heywood[src]

Louis XIII was king of France in 1637, and the husband of Anne of Austria.


Sometime prior to 1637, Louis XIII became King of France and married Queen Anne of Austria. On the night the couple was to consummate their marriage, their chateau was attacked by assassins armed with future technology. Fortunately, the Legends had detected the time aberration and had disguised themselves as members of the Royal Guard. They used their powers and their own future technology to defeat the assassins and protect both Louis XIII and his wife, ensuring that the couple would consummate their marriage and the timeline would remain unchanged.[1]


Anne of Austria mentioned to Sara Lance that Louis XIII "often enjoyed the company of his male courtiers", implying both that he was not heterosexual and that the couple participated in a sexually open relationship.[1]

  • Although there is no historical evidence, the real Louis XIII of France was rumored to be homosexual because he seemed to prefer his male courtiers to his female ones.
