I want you and order you to whip my son, the dauphin, whenever he is stubborn or behaves badly, because I know that in the world there is nothing better in his case. I know from experience, having myself taken all advantage of this kind of treatment, that when I was of his age I was often whipped too. For this I wish you flagellate him and that you make him understand why. - Henry IV of France
