In an essay devoted to showing how the many diﬀerent elements of absolute monarchy ﬁtted together, we can do no more than mention the importance of the key political theorists. Jean Bodin’s notion of sovereignty helped crystallize the idea of a state as an entity with the crucial quality of sovereignty. Justus Lipsius’s neo-Stoic insistence upon moderation and rationality in the use of power was perhaps even more inﬂuential, with the consequent development of the idea of rationality in the service of the state—raison d’état.
Monarchy was therefore not challenged and it provided what France wanted. Opposition came from the defence of interests within the regime and was not fundamentally opposed to it ideologically. Most nobles had remained loyal to the monarchy or their conception of it. The oﬃceholders who sometimes resisted royal authority nevertheless had much to gain from loyalty to the regime, for their oﬃce was their investment. Nevertheless, although venality of oﬃce ensured a low-cost administration, it was hardly proactive and the beneﬁciaries could drag their feet to prevent innovation and change.
These were not of course representative institutions, but in the absence of the Estates-General after 1614, it was widely believed they defended the King’s subjects against an excess of royal authority. To exile them, or worse to emasculate them as Chancellor Maupeou did in 1771, exposed the monarchy to accusations of ‘despotism’. These had been rehearsed during the parlementaire crises, because the religious group appealing to the courts to defend themselves from persecution (the Jansenists) revived earlier constitutional arguments from the middle ages and the sixteenth century about despotism.
