Abstract
Cardinal Guillaume Dubois (1656-1723) rose to the apex of political and ecclesiastical power in Old Regime France. As Prime Minister, Archbishop and Cardinal, he played a decisive role in the consolidation of the peace treaties of Utrecht, Rastatt and Baden, ending the bloody 17th century. Hyacinthe Rigaud, the most famous of French portrait painters, portrayed him with all symbols of his dual dignity. Four books stand out as repositories of legitimacy, including legal works. An analysis of the catalog of Dubois’ opulent personal library indicates that the cardinal and Prime Minister owned thousands of legal works. Rigaud’s use of the volumes is no coincidence.
