Absolute Monarchy Triumphs in France & Parliament Gain Power in EnglandAbsolute Monarchy Triumphs in France * Long Reign of Louis XIV (1643-1715)Cardinal Jules Mazarin- student of Cardinal Richelieu and the chief minister of Anne of Austria; stooped rebellions of peasants and city-dwellers to strengthen the authority of the monarchy. Anne of Austria- mother of Louis XIV, ruled for him because he was 5 years old then. Divine Right- the power of a king came from God and no subject will dare to question it. * It is God who establishes kings Princes thus act as ministers of God and [are] His lieutenants on earth. It is through them that He rules That is why the royal throne is not the throne of a man but the throne of God Himself. It appears from this that the person of kings is sacred, and to move against them is sacrilege ( Bishop Jacques Benigne Boussuet)Leta
