About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1900, as part of the Cambridge Historical Series, this book forms the first of two volumes on the history of France between 1483 and 1789. The volumes cover the chief events in French history during the period, encompassing both domestic and foreign affairs, with a particular focus on the role of the monarchy. The first volume begins with a survey of France at the end of the fifteenth century and ends with a chapter on Mazarin and the Fronde; the second volume begins with a chapter on Louis XIV and Colbert, then moves through to the reign of Louis XVI. Appendices and maps are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the French history and the historical development of the French monarchy.
