Les infortunes de la fidélité - Les partisans du pouvoir royal dans les parlements au XVIIIe siècle


  • Olivier Chaline


[fre] Résumé . Une meilleure compréhension des parlements au XVIIIe siècle nécessite une connaissance plus précise des protégés des ministres et des partisans de l'autorité royale. À Paris, Rouen et Rennes, ces hommes connurent le même destin : ils furent engagés par Versailles dans de rudes combats puis abandonnés. L'incohérence et l'ingratitude furent les deux caractéristiques principales de l'échec de la Cour à tenir les parlements. [eng] Abstract . A better understanding of eighteenth-century parlements needs a more precise study of the adherents of ministers and followers of royal authority. In Paris, Rouen and Rennes, these men shared the same fate: they were engaged by Versailles in very difficult struggles and then aban- donned. Incoherence and ungratefulness were the two main caracteristics of the courtly mismanagement of parliamentary politics.
