Commentary


L'empire de Galilée était l'association des Clercs de Procureurs de la Cour des comptes, fusionnée avec le royaume de la Bazoche qui était la réunion des clercs de Procureurs au Parlement. Son nom venait de la rue de Galilée où elle siégea d'abord; Charlemagne en était le patron. L'association dura jusqu'en 1789; son point de départ fut le XVe siècle. Son directeur s'appelait l'empereur de Galilée et ses assesseurs, conseillers etc... jugeaient toutes les contestations entre Clercs de Procureurs des comptes.

Historical background


CHAMBRE DES COMPTES DU ROI / ACCOUNTS CHAMBER OF THE KING

Like the King's Council, the Chamber of Accounts is a dismemberment of the former king's court, in the part responsible for overseeing the royal domain, handling finances and auditing the accounts of the king's agents. His role was to register edicts and declarations concerning the estate, letters of ennoblement, naturalization, pensions, etc. She also recorded the marriage contracts of the royal family, the peace treaties. The Chamber of Accounts had civil and criminal jurisdiction over its own officers and over offenses committed within its enclosure near the Sainte-Chapelle. It extended its jurisdiction to the entire kingdom in certain areas (war, navy, colonies, royal treasury, roads and bridges, etc.) but the provincial chambers of accounts removed certain accounts from its jurisdiction. The Chamber of Accounts boasted of being the oldest in the kingdom, before Parliament. Its officers enjoyed important privileges: nobility, title of king's advisers, franc-salé, tax exemptions, corvées, etc..
