On This Day

18 Aug 1649

Alors qu'une période de tensions entre le roi Louis XIV (ainsi que ses conseillers) et les princes de France (Conti, la duchesse de Longueville, Turenne, La Rochefoucauld, la duchesse de Chevreuse, Anne de Gonzague, le duc de Beaufort, Gaston d'Orléans, la duchesse de Montpensier, le duc de Bouillon, le duc d'Elbeuf, le maréchal de la Mothe-Houdancourt etc) fait rage au milieu des années 1600, Condé (qui se ligue à l'organisation représentant les princes), envahit le Palais Royal. Ainsi, Mazarin prend la fuite, Louis XIV et Anne d'Autriche sont emprisonnés. Toutefois, le 18 août 1649, le roi reprend sa place, la cour regagne le Palais Royal.

18 Aug 1634

Le père Urbain Grandier est exécuté à l’issue de l’affaire des Ursulines de Loudun. Il est accusé d’être possédé par le démon et de l’avoir introduit dans un couvent d’Ursulines à Loudun.
