These engagements will be studied in their global historical and ideological context : the aftermath of the Great War, the moral, political and social life, their adhesion of the interwar period, the role of the nobility in local political and social life, their adhesion to Rex, royalism, patriotism, religion, war (catalyst of all passions), the resistance, the collaboration and the afterwar period.
