About this item

Rather than provide yet another examination of the drama and allegorical allusions of a ceremonial royal entry into a city, Murphy describes the role that entries played in winning liberties and obtaining influence at court. He examines the dialogue that took place tween the urban elite and the Crown regarding the political, economic, and judicial liberties that underpinned life in pre-modern France. His topics are confirming municipal liberties, petitioning the king, accessing the king, and royal authority in the provinces. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
