(p.52) Chapter Three Manumission and Absolute Monarchy
Captives and Corsairs
Stanford University Press

This chapter focuses on Louis XIV's ascent to power in 1660 and his bid to establish a formidable, prosperous, and cohesive polity based on the co-option of volatile places and peoples—and the symbolic expurgation of Islam. This discussions include the transformation of Marseikes from a maritime outpost with suspect allegiances yet de facto responsibility for Franco–North African relations into a cosmopolitan port with an imposing citadel and formal oversight over all goods and individuals entering France from Muslim territories; French diplomatic efforts to free thousands of captives in North Africa; the ascension of Mulay Isma'il which changed the dynamic of slavery in Morocco; and reintegration rites involving former captives.

Keywords:   Louis XIV, Marseilles, France, ports, Mulay Isma'il, Morocco
