In a transparent way, the study presents and assesses existing French historiography dealing with the issue of historical research of the emerging bureaucratic apparatus in France since its beginnings in the 16th century up to its boom that took place at the end of the 17th century and during the 18th century. The text focuses mainly on central administrations and financial and commercial authorities that were originally the product and subsequently the tool of the king’s rule in individual administrative areas and that ensured the employment and development of the nobility of the robe and of clerks that were not of noble origin who came from the class of educated townspeople. The issue of French clerical staff in the broadest sense is fairly complicated, because next to new bureaucratic authorities there were also traditional authorities where individual posts were either bought or inherited. The study sheds some light on this issue and through an analysis of case studies shows the rise of clerk families, educational possibilities and the living standard of the middle bureaucracy serving in the central authorities of the king’s rule.
