This chapter explores the early barricades through the great Parisian insurrection of 1648 that clearly established their recurrent character. It explains that the “Second Day of the Barricades” climaxed the period of intense civil conflict known as the Fronde parlementaire, but it also proved to be a turning point in the history of French contention, for as the central state's control over French territory began to be consolidated during the long reign of Louis XIV, the barricade went into eclipse.
