Richard M. Golden probably the main well-known occasion in Louis XIV's lengthy reign (1643-1715) used to be the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, issued by way of the French king on 17 October 1685 and registered 5 days later through the parlement of _Paris, a sovereign judicial establishment having jurisdiction over nearly one-half of the dominion. The Edict of Fontainebleau (the Revocation's technical identify, derived from the palace southeast of Paris the place Louis had signed the act) declared unlawful the general public career of Calvinist Protestantism and led possibly as many as 200,000 Huguenots/ as French Protestants have been identified, to escape their place of birth. They did so regardless of royal decrees opposed to emigration and the tough punishment (prison for ladies, the galleys for males) expecting these stuck escaping. The Revocation is a landmark within the checkered background of spiritual toleration (or intolerance); Huguenots, many Roman Catholics, and historians of all persuasions have heaped scorn on Louis XIV for retreating the Edict of Nantes, issued by way of his grandfather, Henry IV (1589-1610). King Henry had proclaimed the 1598 Edict to be either "perpetual" and "irrevocable. " even if one absolutist king couldn't bind his successors and even supposing "irrevocable" within the context of French legislation easily intended irrevocable until eventually outdated by way of one other edict, historians have accused Louis XIV of two breaking religion with Henry IV and the Huguenots. Louis did merely what Henry prob­ ably may have performed had he possessed the considered necessary power.
