Le Duc et le processus d’intégration de la Lorraine à l’État royal

Abstract : Belatedly attached to France, Lorraine is a successful example of integration from one territory to another. The definitive incorporation of the Duchy of Lorraine into the Kingdom of France upon the death of Stanislas in 1766 completes a long process of political convergence that began in the 17th century. The analysis of the government of Lorraine under the reigns of the last three dukes, Leopold I, François III and Stanislas I, allows us to trigger and implement this process and the role of the Duke of Lorraine. This integration is cultural, the edict of September 27, 1748 makes French the administrative language of the duchies; it is also diplomatic and military, the Lorraine defenses were neutralized as soon as Leopold returned; it is finally legal through institutional mimicry.Based on this Lorraine example, we created an instrument to measure the integration of one territory into another. because if the historical and geographical context varies, most of the elements of this process are found systematically.
