Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the actions of royal authorities as they scrambled to find and deploy the instruments of coercion necessary to restore order. First and foremost, it is hoped that this chapter has demonstrated the complex nature of the military response to the revolt and delineated the main contours of an evolving royal strategy. Second, it is hoped that this chapter has demonstrated the variety of military units used in the repression of the revolt and the difficulties inherent in relying on units of the regular army to execute repressive operations.Third, it is hoped that this chapter has highlighted some of the universal difficulties of waging a counter insurgency campaign, difficulties in no way unique to seventeenth century Languedoc.
