Fronde

uprisings

Fronde, series of uprisings against the French crown, 1648–53. At first largely popular uprisings against heavy taxation, they were later fomented by the parlements and discontented members of the aristocracy, such as Louis II, prince de Condé, against the autocratic chief minister, Cardinal Mazarin, whose decisive intervention in 1652 finally crushed the Fronde.
