Msg event.pngThe Birth of a Permanent Taxation System

Charles VII remodeled French finances, established heavy taxation, particularly through the taille, a direct land tax. Extracting the wealth of the land has always been a tough nut to crack for the centralizing French kings. To tap the vast riches of the French lands new and improved taxation methods were needed time after time. Throughout history the methods used became more and more rationalized to optimize gains for the treasury. The Birth of a Permanent Taxation Systems was a major step towards this aim.

Msg event.pngThe State takes control of the Guilds

The word gilde, or ghilde, is but one of many terms used formerly in France and in the Low Countries to denote what the more modern word corporation stands for. In France and the Low Countries a guild was originally a sort of fraternity for common support, protection, and amusement. The members paid each a certain contribution to the common fund. After the end of the fifteenth century, under the despotic rule of the French kings, the guilds ceased to be a means of protection for a majority of their members. Their privileges became a means of filling the royal coffers at the expense of the employers.

Msg event.pngAcademie française

Cardinal Richelieu, a liberal patron of literature, created l'Academie française in 1636 in order to promote French language and literary pursuits. Although the scientific part of the academy never matched the literary one in fame, it did make a number of important scientific discoveries in the eighteenth century. It was French expeditions in 1735 and 1743, for instance, which established the oblate shape of the earth.

Msg event.pngThe Commissioning of Versailles

The major influence which France did exert over the baroque age was one of courtly opulence. In 1669 Louis XIV (1638-1715) decided to convert an old hunting lodge at Versailles into a palace of unprecedented magnificence. It was completed in 1682, and the court moved there in 1683. There was not a kingly or princely court in Europe which could match Versailles for the opulence of its gilded interiors, its mirrors and chandeliers, with an appropriately matching flamboyance of courtly ceremony, and there was not a kingly or princely court in Europe which did not, either openly or secretly, aspire to match this model.

Msg event.pngChambers of Reunion

Aiming at European hegemony and the rounding of French frontiers in the North and in the East (to the Rhine), Louis XIV had established the Chambers of Reunion, courts that advanced claims to Imperial lands. These expansionist policies were at first tolerated by France powerless neighbors. It reached its climax in 1681, with the annexation of the free city of Strasbourg in Alsace and the 1684 occupation of Luxembourg. The reunion was recognized by the Empire in the 1684 Truce of Regensburg, mostly because the Emperor was preoccupied by the Turkish menace (siege of Vienna in 1683) and this led to the creation of the anti-French League of Augsburg (1686).

Msg event.pngThe Surrender of Maine

In exchange for accepting the treaty of Tours in 1444 the county of Maine was promised to France. In practice, however, this has still not come to pass. No English governor wants to be remembered as the one to surrender Maine and in [Root.Capital.GetCapitalName] prominent nobles are claiming that our negotiator, William de la Pole, had no mandate to make this concession in the first place. French emissaries have repeatedly tried to remind us of this ever since the signing and [FRA.Monarch.GetName] has now finally taken matters in his own hands and shown up at the walls of Le Mans, demanding the city to surrender.
Unless we surrender Maine to the French we are very likely looking at a hasty resumption of hostilities.

 
This event happens only once during a campaign.

Msg event.pngThe Surrender of Maine

In exchange for accepting the treaty of Tours in 1444 the county of Maine was promised to France. In practice however this has still not come to pass. The English have repeatedly evaded the question and it is becoming increasingly clear that many in the English camp are arguing that the treaty will not be honored. In one last attempt to force the question [Root.Monarch.GetName] has approached the county capital, Le Mans, himself and demanded the surrender of the city.
The local commander however shows no signs of intending to open the gates, despite not having a force strong enough to withstand an attack.

With René now gone, the Anjou claims to the kingdom are looking increasingly inconsequential.\nThe Neapolitan Kingdom is not without its enemies, however, and now [Root.Monarch.GetName] has a chance to claim the Kingdom of Naples for [Root.Monarch.GetHerselfHimself] by citing Papal rulings and the marriage ties between King René and our own dynasty in the past as a pretext. Normally, this would be seen as a very weak claim but due to the unpopularity of the Neapolitan rulers this might be overlooked.

Msg event.pngRichelieu

Armand Jean du Plessis, Cardinal of Richelieu, was 39 years old when he became Chief Minister of King Louis XIII in 1624. His main successful efforts in domestic policy were the fight against the upper nobility and the Protestant political privileges. He also supported overseas trade, colonial expansion and the constitution of a permanent royal navy. Its most notable achievement remained the diplomatic game he played during the Thirty Years War, pushing with French gold the Swedish intervention in 1630 and ultimately joining the war in 1635. His aims had been the reduction of the House of Habsburg and the extrication of France from encirclement by enemy lands. He is considered as the inventor of the concept of Real Politik.

Msg event.pngColbert

Nominated Minister of Finance in 1661, Jean-Baptiste Colbert (born 1619) developed the first national economy of the modern age. His state-guided economy included better tax collection, statistical planning of the budget and regular bookkeeping. An advocate of Mercantilism (also Colbertism), he aimed at a favorable French balance of trade through the export of valuable finished products (like luxury items) and high import tariffs. He encouraged a more efficient domestic trade (roads, canals, suppression of local duties), established state monopolies, subsidized manufactures, promoted navigation and trade associations, fixed agricultural prices, encouraged marriage and prohibited emigration (except to Canada). To support his policies, he also greatly enlarged the size of the royal navy. While mercantilism promoted commerce and crafts, thereby increasing prosperity, peasants were not stimulated to increase their production. When he died in 1683, his son Colbert de Seignelay pursued his task till 1690.

The opera singer Julie d'Aubigny learned dancing, reading, drawing, and fencing while young. She fled to Marseille together with Sérannes, an assistant fencing master and they earned money by giving fencing exhibitions and singing in taverns and at local fairs. Julie d'Aubigny joined the opera company run by Pierre Gaultier in Marseille and left Sérannes for a young woman. The two lovers managed to get away from a convent by setting it on fire. Three months later, the girl returned to her parents and d'Aubigny was charged in absentia with kidnapping, body snatching, arson, and failing to appear before the tribunal. The sentence was death by fire.
She returned to Paris and asked an old lover of hers, the Count d'Armagnac, to persuade the king to grant her a pardon and a place at the Paris Opéra. The audience love her beautiful voice, her acting skill, and her androgynous appearance, but she has not gained as many friends amongst her fellow actors and actresses. Louis Gaulard Dumesny had bothered female members and thus earned himself a beating by d'Aubigny, Thévenard and her duel of wits are legendary and she defeated three noblemen in duels who challenged her after she kissed a young woman at a society ball.

Msg event.pngMarie Antoinette

The [Root.GetAdjective] people were charmed by her personality and beauty when they first saw Marie Antoniette at the Tuileries, and exclaimed over her fair skin, straw-blond hair, blue eyes and her majestic tall figure. She was Dauphine of [Root.GetAdjective] until her husband Louis-Auguste became king of France and Navarre and she assumed the title of Queen. Her education was very poor, focused on manners and appearance. Despite this, she tried to gain influence at court but at the start, the King blocked her candidates, who could have helped her increase her political power. It took seven years of marriage before her first daughter was born, and the birth was difficult. The pressure of having a male heir weighted on her, and she took to gambling and buying expensive dresses. Slowly but surely she managed to increase her influence and became paramount in government by giving her support to marquis de Castries - who became Minister of the Navy -, marquis de Ségur - who became Minister of War -, Charles Alexandre de Calonne - who became the Financial Minister - and baron de Breteuil who became Minister of Royal Household. The ministers of the Navy and the War attempted to prevent the middle classes from reaching high positions in the Army and Navy, something Marie Antoinette supported. Spending money on dresses, buying houses and gambling, the [Root.GetAdjective] viewed her as an amoral, squanderer, ignorant foreign Queen who cared more about her country of origin than $COUNTRY$. This was untrue, and after the first failed Assembly of Notables, she abandoned her carefree activities to immerse herself into politics to try and save the country for her children's sake, to change the view the people of $COUNTRY$ had of her and help her depressed husband the King.

Msg event.pngProtestants expelled from France – France

One of the preoccupations of Louis XIV had been the restoration of national unity, in particular religious unity. Safeguarding the Catholic Church by royal privileges and censoring Papal decrees (Gallicanism), he also sent dragoons to harass French Protestant families, persecuting them into conversions. In 1685, his revocation of the Edict of Nantes prompted nearly half a million Huguenots (French Protestants) to flee the country, to more tolerant places such as Holland (from where many migrated to South Africa) or realms that welcomed them, like Brandenburg-Prussia who alone welcomed 20,000. With them, France lost commercial, judicial and cultural elite, to the benefit of her enemies.

Msg event.pngThe Fronde in France

The Fronde (1648-1653) was mostly the last revolt of the French nobility against royal absolutism. It had started by the revolt of the Parliament of Paris (at the time the highest French court with jurisdiction over royal edicts) against the domestic policies of Cardinal Mazarin, who acted as Prime Minister of the 5-year-old Louis XIV. It was followed by that of the upper nobility (Fronde des Princes), but the rebellion was finally suppressed by a combination of Machiavellian diplomacy, betrayals and reverses of fortune. The Parliament was muzzled (it would not be convened again before 1789) and the upper nobility deprived of political power, preparing the advent of total royal absolutism under the Sun King, Louis XIV, after 1661.

The Mississipi Trade Company[edit]

id

Msg event.pngThe Mississippi Trade Company

In 1717 the Mississippi Trade Company was founded. It had a Royal Monopoly on the utilization of the large colonial areas along the Mississippi River in America. In 1719 the Government borrowed 1.5 billion livres from the company. The company was more of a financial institution than a Company of Trade and Industry and the price of shares hit the roof. In 1720 the French hausse turned into a baisse and the fact that the shares of the Company were overvalued was evident even to the man on the street. Soon panic broke out and the Company was declared bankrupt. John Law was forced to flee from France.

Msg event.pngMississippi Trade Company Folds

After the early success with John Law's Bank and the Mississippi Trade Company the government bought the Bank and borrowed 1.5 billion livres from the Trade Company to pay mortgage on its huge national loans. These events brought a hausse to the French industry and the government lacked all restrains printing stockpiles of money without any security. When the overheated economy started to recycle with reality the shareholders of the trade company panicked driving both the Bank and the Trade Company into bankruptcy. As much of two years of collected tax money disappeared in the catastrophe and France thus was forced to declare bankruptcy in 1724.

Economic Reforms[edit]

Msg event.pngMachault and the 5 percent tax

When Jean-Baptiste de Machault became controller-general of the finances in France in December 1745, he found the country on the verge of bankruptcy. Neither the aristocracy nor the clergy were paying the general land tax, the taille. In 1749, Machault tried to reform the system by proposing to substitute the old tax of a tenth, which many of the clergy and the nobility evaded, with a five percent tax without exceptions. The proposal was met by such loud protests from the clergy and the nobility, which cited their historical privileges, that Machault was unable to see it through.

Msg event.pngNecker announces the Budget Deficit

Jacques Necker was originally a conservative compromise to the post as minister of finance. He however introduced a number of financial reforms, including a more equitable system of taxation and a plan for the funding of the national debt. In 1781 Necker was forced to announce the budget deficit in an effort to get new loans. The figures were highly colored, but everyone could now see what absurd sums the Court spent.
