The English Restoration and Louis XIV: From the Peace of Westphalia to the Peace of Nimwegen by Osmund Airy (1845 - 1928).

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page here:

https://librivox.org/the-english-restoration-and-louis-xiv-by-osmund-airy/

In this trim volume the British historian, Osmund Airy writes of the period between 1648 and 1679 when Cardinal Mazarin, having concluded the masterly Peace of Westphalia for France, confronts the rebellions of the nobility known as the Fronde. By the time of his death in 1661, Mazarin has completed the work of Richelieu and made Louis XIV an absolute monarch, ready to extend his borders by conquest. But in Holland, the young Stadtholder, William III of Orange, resolutely opposes Louis's military ambitions, while in England, the restored Charles II is struggling with Parliament, juggling religious factions, suppressing conspiracies real and imagined, and cheerfully spending Louis's secret subsidies, while giving the French king as little value for his money as possible.

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

PL OK of course. My head reeled but I think I've got a bit of a grip on the re-arrangement post 1648. The feudal fragmentation of Germany (not to mention the states of the Holy Roman Empire) are becoming less surreal. Keep up the enlightening.

Best,

Barbara

Hi Jo,

Newgatenovelist found some important errors!

I corrected Airy's birthday from 1945 to 1845.

I also made some corrections in the chapter headings, but those will go over in the corrected form during cataloguing, I think.

Thanks, Erin!

Thanks, Jo!
