Les milices provinciales dans le Nord du royaume de France à l'époque moderne (XVIIe-XVIIIe siècles)

Abstract : From the second half of the XVIIth century onward, the royal army in France was made up of two bodies supposed to be complementary: a regular troop of professional soldiers and civilians mobilised within the framework of provincial militias. The recruiting of these militiamen was carried through lottery and imposed a service of 4 years (6 after 1765). Village communities and the monarchic State shared the costs of maintenance of this troop. The militia, whose military efficiency was much debated, was unanimously decried by the populations. It was reproached indeed with jeopardizing individual freedom and above all with ruining the fragile economies of local parishes. Only the region of Boulogne accepted to provide on a regular basis highly praised troops.
