Abstract
This thesis examines the role architecture played in the negotiation of power between local government and the Bourbon monarchy in Bordeaux after the Fronde— the civil war that was waged in France during the seventeenth century. By considering the construction and development of the Château Trompette, a royal military fortress in Bordeaux dating to the fifteenth century, in relation to significant local structures in the city, like the ancient Roman temple called the Piliers de Tutelle, the author traces a complex struggle for authoritative control in Bordeaux that revolved around the connection between material buildings and indigenous memory. The study of the history of architectural structures in Bordeaux after the Fronde— their construction and destruction— reveals the competitive relationship that existed between Bordeaux’s local government and the French Crown and adds to the historical debate concerning the nature and development of absolutism in seventeenth-century France.
