Able to Strategically Plan Able to Strategically Plan Louis XIV used a plan of action in order to reach his overall goal of becoming the sole ruler of France. He wanted to centralize the French government, concentrating all political power and government responsibility into the hands of one single authority. In order to do so, he took away the power of the nobles, giving himself absolute power over France. Louis wasnt able to motivate his troops to fight for France.
