    Richelieu and The French Monarchy C V Wedgwood Paperback Book Collier Richelieu and The - $ and French The Richelieu Collier Monarchy Book Wedgwood V C Paperback Paperback C V and Monarchy Book French Wedgwood Richelieu The Collier.   Cardinal Richelieu was a strong believer in the power of the crown – as had been his predecessor the Duke de ieu served his master – Louis XIII – well and did much to make Seventeenth Century France a classic example of the expansion of royal absolutism at the expense of noble power.

    The Fronde (French pronunciation:) was a series of civil wars in France between and , occurring in the midst of the Franco-Spanish War, which had begun in King Louis XIV confronted the combined opposition of the princes, the nobility, the law courts (), and most of the French people, and yet won out in the dispute started when the government of . The five-year-old presumably nodded earnestly. His reign, as Louis XV, would be marked by a cycle of spending and wars so extravagantly wasteful and unproductive that they would bring shame not only on his person but on the institution of the French monarchy itself. But the profligate, war-driven habits of its kings could not hold France back.

    The book depicts Louis as a man willing to have Richelieu as a powerful advisor but aware of his scheming; he is portrayed as a bored and sour man, dwarfed by Richelieu's intellect. Films such as the , the or the versions tend to treat Louis XIII as a comical character by depicting him as bumbling and incompetent. While Marie de Medici eventually stepped down as regent, Richelieu joined the king as his chief minister in and continued to play the key role in shaping the French state. Figure Cardinal Richelieu, in many ways the architect of absolute monarchy in France.
