Example text

The period 1661-1715 saw diminished violence within the borders of France because better-paid and betterdisciplined soldiers did not prey on Louis's own subjects, because the success of French arms meant that wars were fought primarily outside his realm, and because France was largely spared internal rebellions. 5 percent for 1661-1715 - and the burdens of the latter wars were very great indeed. 5 percent or less, and the remote sites of those wars, plus the absence of any significant internal rebellion, made it seem a very benign age.

So successful was he in capturing enemy battle flags, which then hung as trophies in Paris, that he became known as the tapisier of Notre Dame. But Luxembourg died early in 1695, and no one stepped up to replace him. Although the French did well in the field during the Nine Years' War, the effort ruined them. Louis mobilized an army that reached 420,000 men on paper, and this gargantuan force proved beyond his means to maintain without risking bankruptcy. The war ended in a peace of exhaustion, the Treaty of Ryswick, by which Louis lost much that he had gained since Nymwegen, including the fortress of Luxembourg, although he retained Strasbourg.

The French Protestants, or Huguenots, won the status of a virtual state within a state through the Edict of Nantes in 1598, a compromise peace that awarded the Huguenots certain fortresses and the right to retain military forces of their own. Richelieu understandably believed that the monarchy could not tolerate such independent power within French borders, and the revolt of the Huguenots in 1625 confirmed his worst fears. Louis and Richelieu now conducted a war against Protestant power, a war that culminated in the siege of La Rochelle, 1627-28, which fell despite English aid.
