The Resurgence of Royal Power

(p.155) Chapter 4 The Resurgence of Royal Power
The Sacrificed Generation

Lesley A. Sharp

University of California Press

This chapter examines the destructive effects of the oppressive policies of French colonialism on royal power. It stresses that authority demands loyalty, which is expressed through willing participation in different forms of ritual service. It shows that a royal context emphasizes indigenous understandings of the past, and uses the example of young king Tsiaraso Rachidy IV to highlight the potential of youth to make history.

Keywords:   oppressive policies, French colonialism, royal power, authority, loyalty, ritual service, royal context, making history
