(Maybe should be in the French Language community instead.) Louis XIV famously allegedly said "L'État, c'est moi". But wouldn't he (at least hypothetically) have used the royal 'we', i.e., "L'État, c'est nous"?
(I ask partly because, if the use of the royal 'we' would be correct, it could be taken as evidence he never said "L'État...".)
I'm aware of a related question (Did Louis XIV actually say "The State? I am the State."? Could he have said it?) but that doesn't address the specific wording.
