Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
If I may make a recommendation, begin with Louis XIV and his right-hand man Jean-Baptiste Colbert. Their project to pacify the ambitions of two"estates" created a lucrative professional political economy, dividing the third, in the Estates General. Within a couple generations this faction got quite out of hand. In the National Assembly.

That is the impression my daughter's International Baccalaureate (IB) textbook history left with me.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
