Example text

Sa mère, Anne d'Autriche, gouverna, assistée du cardinal Mazarin. Cet Italien, recommandé par Richelieu, fut un Premier Ministre très habile, mais sa politique financière était mauvaise. A Paris, les nobles et le peuple se révoltèrent contre lui et la reine. Le jeune roi dut se réfugier à SaintGermain et la petite guerre civile (« la Fronde » ) dura 5 ans (1648-53). Mazarin mourut en 1661. Le roi avait 23 ans. Il voulait commander en maître, et ne voulait ni de grands seigneurs, ni d'hommes trop puissants au gouvernement.

Anne d'Autriche, sa mère, prit la régence, alors que le roi avait 5 ans. Les seigneurs les plus puissants se révoltèrent contre le ministre Mazarin: ce fut la Fronde^ une petite guerre civile. LOUIS xiv (1643-1715) 2. 49 Que fit le jeune roi à l'âge de 23 ans? Après la mort de Mazarin, Louis X I V se débarrassa du ministre Fouquet, trop riche et trop puissant, et appela des bourgeois, Colbert et Louvois, à son gouvernement. 3. Pourquoi Louis X I V fit-il bâtir le château de Versailles? Pour montrer l'enrichissement de la France, retenir autour de lui les seigneurs qui formaient sa « cour » , et pouvoir régner d'une façon absolue sur tout le pays.

Plus de dix villes se rallièrent au 24 jeune roi et à sa guerrière. Mais après la tentative de reprendre Paris, Jeanne d'Arc fut blessée, faite prisonnière à Compiègne, et vendue aux Anglais. Ceux-ci la firent juger par des évêques. Les juges déclarèrent qu'elle était sorcière. En 1431, Jeanne fut brûlée sur la place du vieux marché à Rouen. Cependant, Charles V I I se fit reconnaître comme le véritable roi par ses anciens adversaires, les Bourguignons. Après la mort de Jeanne, les Anglais perdirent successivement leurs places fortes en France.
