Les racines historiques locales du droit constitutionnel : naissance et essor des règles successorales dans les principautés impériales et françaises sous l’Ancien Régime

Abstract : The kingdom of France and the Holy Roman Empire are similarly composed of many provinces, headed by administrators originally placed to oversee governance and relay policies from the central power. However, the rules regulating the transmission of administrative responsibilities granted by the sovereign leader evolve in a disparate manner. He conserves the control of the transmission of certain responsibilities, mostly concerning neighbouring fiefdoms, notably by the intermediary of the investiture. At the same time, the control of task devolution escapes him, progressively characterized by inheritance, and thus the rules regulating the transmission appear to be equally heterogeneous. The provinces begin consequently to adopt their own constitutional law, different from the entity on which they depend, in the shape of their own fundamental laws responsible in governing the devolution of power. Even though they are autonomous, these laws can remain subject to the influence of a central power and remain inspired by the fundamental laws which govern it or undergo a control on behalf of the sovereign but they can be composed of their own rules. The fundamental laws of the provinces that constitute the border separating the major kingdoms are also susceptible to endure a bilateral influence.
