In 1617, Louis XIII was forced to resort to assassination as punishment, while a century later, Louis XIV needed only to issue a command and the kingdom's most powerful subjects would submit to imprisonment or exile without trial. What were 'politics of disgrace', why did it emerge, what conventions governed its use, and how did France react to it?
