Wouldn't have mattered. Napoleon didn't develop French revolutionary military structure, strategy or logistics. He simply took full advantage of the revolutionary military developments. Due to technological, demographic and economic limitations during the Sun king reign, a Napoleon wouldn't have much impact. If anything he'd probably do worse than Louis XIV, who acquired a long lasting territories for France.

France's demographics were actually more favorable under Louis XIV than under Napoleon, no?
