Duke Eberhard Ludwig was the tenth duke of Württemberg, from 1692 until 1733. Shortly before 1700, he visited Louis XIV at the Palace of Versailles and planned to make an absolutist state out of Württemberg. He raised taxes, but financing still remained an obstacle. In 1704, he laid the foundation for his Ludwigsburg Palace. To save money, he allowed the workers to reside tax-free around the palace for 15 years. Later, the city of Ludwigsburg developed out of these residences. In 1707 he became the field marshall of the Swabian troops in the War of the Spanish Succession.
