Chapter Summary

Although the Sun King would face greater and far more serious revolts later in his reign, it is both interesting and instructive to examine the manner in which the young king dealt with the less significant disorders that troubled the first two decades of his personal reign. Instead, this chapter will examine the royal response to just three of the early revolts: the Boulonnais revolt of 1662, the Audijos revolt of 1663-1665, and the Vivarais revolt of 1670. The 1670s were a turbulent period, particularly along the frontier with Spain and although several revolts along that frontier are not covered in this chapter they are nevertheless important and worthy of future study. Despite with such omissions and limitations this chapter reveals some interesting characteristics of the royal response to revolts and introduces several key themes that will be explored more fully in subsequent chapters.

Keywords: Audijos revolt; Boulonnais; disorders; Revolt; royal response; themes; turbulent period
