Chapter Summary

This chapter demonstrates, Huguenots thought about themselves as belonging to a community that could not be confined within national borders and used this insight to make claims on behalf of Protestants as a whole. It considers the Huguenot impact on a narrower set of courts. It then discusses the protestant position in Europe at the time of the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes before considering the impact that the influx of Huguenot refugees made to North German protestant courts. The chapter highlights some of the ways in which Huguenots were involved in the life of the Guelph courts. Finally it explores Huguenot efforts to alert British and German political leaders to their cause and discusses how far Huguenot aims were achieved in the series of conflict with Louis XIV that dominated the last years of his reign.

Keywords: British; Europe; Guelph courts; Huguenots; Louis XIV; North German protestant courts; Protestants
