This chapter explores two principal questions with reference to the gendarmeries. First, how the system was developed during the Napoleonic régime as a military-civil force for the maintenance of order and for the enforcement of conscription legislation; and second, what made gendarmeries attractive to the rulers of so many European states during the nineteenth century.
