(p.33) 2 The Crisis of the Ancien Régime
The Revolution in Provincial France

Alan Forrest

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the political crisis from the point of view of the ancien regime or the aristocratic, social, and political systems in Aquitaine, France, during the 1780s. The crisis was triggered by Charles Alexander de Calonne's reform plans by the edict of June 1787, which set up provincial assemblies to preside over the impending reforms. This made the parlements suspicious and they feared that the King was planning greater centralization.

Keywords:   political crisis, Aquitaine, France, ancien regime, Charles Alexander de Calonne, political reform
