The Burgundian Parliament at Dijon

Recommended Posts

This jeton was issued in 1645 for the Burgundian Parliament which sat at Dijon, the main town in the region. It was struck shortly after the death of Louis XIII (1643) at which time the young Louis XIV was all of five years old. His mother, Anne acted as Regent, but the real work of the state was entrusted by her to Mazarin.


No doubt this jeton was issued to re-inforce the succession and authority of the regency in the name of the king.
