jan 1, 1634 - Introduction of Intendants in France

Description:

Royal intendants transmitted information from local communities to Paris and delivered royal orders from the capital to their generalites. They were almost always recruited from the judicial nobility directly by the monarch and could only serve in districts to which they were not native to prevent vested interest in localties. They recruited men for the army, supervised tax collection, presided over administration of local law, checked up on the local nobility, and regulated economic activity. As their power grew, sso did the power of the centralized French state.
