Louis XIV, playing at backgammon, had a doubtful throw; a dispute arose, and all the courtiers remained silent. The Count de Grammont came in at that instant. "Decide the matter," said the king to him. "Sire," said the count, "your Majesty is in the wrong.""How so," replied the king; "can you decide without knowing the question?""Yes," said the count, "because, had the matter been doubtful, all these gentlemen present would have given it for your majesty."
