Les officiers de la Chambre des comptes de Bretagne et le corps de ville de Nantes sous l’Ancien Régime

Guy Saupin
p. 227-248

Abstracts

Until the transformation of the municipal functions into venal offices, some masters and presidents of the Chambre des comptes are interested in the office of mayor of Nantes and some listeners hope for being municipal magistrates. The breakup, which is complete during the XVIIIth century, starts more quickly in the échevinage than for the presidency of the city. In the last third of the XVIth century, the political economic situation is essential, as well in the search of monarchical loyalty as in the rebellion of the Ligue. During the XVIIth century, if the monarch follows closely the choices of party in power of Nantes for the appointement of the mayors, it badly supports the listeners for the posts of municipal magistrates, undoubtedly precipitating a rupture carried by a reaction of an aristocratic type. Now, in the family strategies of social rise, there is a gap between two models of magistrates, as well in seniority in rank as in social power.
