Which French king named the city after himself?
The French king who named the city after himself was King Louis XIV. He named the city "Versailles" after his own family name "de Bourbon-Ver-sailles."
Actually, King Louis XIV did not name the city after himself. The city of Versailles was originally a small village named "Versailles" before Louis XIV decided to expand and transform it into a grand royal residence. He later relocated his court and government to Versailles in 1682, making it the new political and cultural center of France. However, the city was not named after the king but instead retained its original name.
