Les fêtes burlesques des mazarinades

Abstract : This paper aims to study the appropriations and misappropriations of court festivals in the pamphlets of the Fronde. Feasts, royal entries and court ballets were actually mocked in pamphlets against Cardinal Mazarin, Louis XIV’s chief advisor. However, some “expressions of a general joy” (it is the title of a mazarinade coming from the rebellion in south-western France), widespread in court festivals as well as in popular festivities, suggest that the very principle of (costly) festivals organized by the royal power was questioned.
