Historical background


Britain was, of all French provinces, where the monarchy best respected the privileges and local particularities. His union only dated 1532 and states were the most turbulent of the kingdom. Their consent was required for any waiver of funds and the execution of all the edicts same sovereign. They were held every two years. The three orders were represented with bishops, abbots, representatives of cities and especially many nobles (six to seven hundred) which imposed generally their will on others, although the vote was made by order. The nobles and gentry formed what was known as the "bastion" tyrannising the rest of the meeting and were especially attracted by the parties and meals. The main resource of the provincial budget was provided by the "homework" tax on beverages but also very productive fouage the size or the "fire". Despite this income, the U.S. administration of Britain was still expensive and on the eve of the Revolution, States are indebted fifty million pounds. States have made about 150 different tokens, to be offered to members of his administration as a bonus: 100 for each president, 50 for each auditor, etc.. .
