France 1500-1800 - HSTY3707

Year - 2020

France was a political, cultural, and economic powerhouse. We examine the growth of French influence under the Renaissance kings; the kingdom's fracture in a series of religious wars; the age of Louis XIV and the Enlightenment; and the Revolution. Along the way we meet philosophers, scientists, and artists, and we see France spread its power across the globe.
