Under Louis VI (1108-37), the royalty becomes a power.
Helped by the Church, advised by the Suger abbot, it makes itself the police force of its fields, and protects the weak ones.
It is dreaded large feudal lords, and establishes for the first time royal suzerainty in a part of the South.
It is favoured in its companies by the inhabitants of the cities and particularly by the communes.
Chief of the nation against the foreigner, it disputes Normandy with king d' Angleterre.
The commune of Laon.
The tower of Montlhéry.
The king Louis VI.
The priest of Puiset.
