The corpus of royal letters of pardon from the last two decades of the 16th century concerning Anjou is original in more than one respect. Illuminating a period left in obscurity by the interruption of the royal chancellery’s registration of such letters, it covers all of the League’s war and notably the five years during which the royal institutions were transferred to Tours. It thus sheds light on the conflicts of these years of civil war, on the phenomenon of the militarization of society, and on the evolution of the policy of pardon at a time of weakened royal power. Based on a register of the tribunal of Angers, it also enhances our knowledge of the practices of ratification, notably the proportion of dismissed suppliants and the measures aiming to control the pardon of local nobles by sending them before a parliament. Another institutional innovation, a specific pardon for involuntary homicides, testifies to a new reflection on the difference between homicide and murder. The presentation of the local context and the identification of the protagonists allows us to push further in our understanding of the conflicts evoked in the letters. Several letters, indeed, cast new light on figures already known to historians, such as the famous voyager Jacques de Villament or women who performed remarkable acts of charity.
