Les Dernieres paroles dv roy d'Angleterre : auec son adieu aux prince & princesse ses enfans. Published: 1649 A Paris : Chez François Prevveray grande rue de la Bretonnerie, proche la Porte S. Jacques. Satire on Charles I and the people of England. One of the Mazarinades, a group of political tracts, written by opponents of the Chief Minister of France, Cardinal Jules Mazarin, during the period of violent political upheaval called the "Fronde," beginning January 1648 when Parisian hooligans smashed the windows of Mazarin’s house with slingshots, or frondes in French. Mazarin was effectively co-ruler of France with during the regency of Anne of Austria, mother of Louis XIV. Queen Anne and Cardinal Mazarin resorted to heavy taxation because of the ongoing war with Spain – in spite of the Treaty of Westphalia that terminated the Thirty Years War in 1648. They were defied by Parliament. There was rioting….Anne left Paris with Louis XIV as the unrest continued. Ultimately Mazarin fled to Cologne in 1651. There is a great deal more, to say the least, of this turbulent interesting time in which these Mazarinades were written. In Les Dernières Paroles there is a strong element of tragedy, drama. Charles 1's death is too extraordinary image. Regicide. Within the text the thoughts and feelings of Charles1 are revealed. He is a victim. The barbarity of the act and of its perpetrators is emphasized by the author. The English are presented as “cruel” and the author of Les Dernieres Paroles… writes: “Il n’y a rien de plus dangereux que de tomber entre les mains d’vn Peuple insensé et barbare. ” This event is an example of the danger run by a monarch fallen “into the hands of such an insane and barbarous People,” and the author says: “Les Anglois nous en fournissent vn pitoyable & pernicious example." “….the Foreign Princes’ ambassadors” were “appalled at this news.” An extremely interesting example in the body of works known as the Mazarinades.
