Mazarin took advantage of the weakened imperial power of the Habsburgs to organize a defensive alliance between France and the German states closest to the French frontier (the League of the Rhine, August 1658).
Mazarin was obliged to leave the court twice and was only able to maintain his post because he was in favour with Anne of Austria and the boy king Louis XIV, whose education he had carefully directed.
Mazarin was not an ordained priest (in 1632 he had received only minor orders), though he thought of entering the priesthood on several occasions, especially in 1651 and even in 1660 shortly before his death.

 Jules Mazarin
Mazarin knew how to keep the Calvinists amused with fine words, promises, and calculated delays: for six years they believed themselves to be on the eve of recovering their privileges, and in the end they obtained nothing.
Mazarin obtained a decree of the Royal Council forbidding money to be remitted to Rome for expediting Bulls, there was a show of preparing an expedition against Avignon, and Innocent X, yielding to these menaces, ended by restoring their property and dignities to Mazarin's protégés, the Barberini.
Mazarin's nieces made princely marriages: Anne Marie Martinozzi became the Princesse de Conti; Laura Martinozzi, the Duchesse de Modène; Laure Mancini died in 1657, Duchesse de Mercoeur; Olympe Mancini became Comtesse de Soissons; Hortense Mancini, Marquise de la Meilleraie and Duchesse de Mazarin; Marie Mancini, Countess Colonna; Marie Anne Mancini, Duchesse de Bouillon.

 Jules Cardinal Mazarin Summary
Mazarin had military duties during the war in Monferrato of 1627, and was tasked by Pope Urban VIII to defend the Papal interests in that conflict.
As papal vice-legate at Avignon (1632), and nuncio extraordinary in France (1634), Mazarin was perceived as an extension of Richelieu's policy, and under Habsburg pressure, Mazarin was dismissed by Urban VIII on January 17, 1636.
Mazarin protected the Barberini cardinals, nephews of the late pope, and the Bull against them was voted by the Parliament of Paris "null and abusive"; France made a show of preparing to take Avignon by force, and Innocent backed down.

 Jules Mazarin
Mazarin was thus acknowledged supreme minister, but he still had a difficult part to play.
It was while in exile at Brühl that Mazarin saw the mistake he had made in isolating himself and the queen, and that his policy of balancing every party in the state against each other had made every party distrust him.
So by his counsel the queen, while nominally in league with De Retz and the parliamentary Fronde, labored to form a purely royal party, wearied by civil dissensions, who should act for her and her son's interest alone, under the leadership of Mathieu Molé, the famous premier president of the parlement of Paris.

Mazarin just does not like sticking in one specific style of music; “For Energy Infinite” moves back to the indie-rock style, replete with jangling guitars that was such a rage during the mid to late nineties (and consequently, has a big stamp of Weezer upon it).
The ability of Mazarin to have an instrumental track at the crux of this disc (the aforementioned “Shroed(Er)/Inger”) shows a band that knows they are at a level where they need not worry about something like an instrumental track going farther south.

After the deaths of Richelieu (1642) and Louis XIII (1643), Mazarin was the principal minister of the regent Anne of Austria.
He won favorable terms for France in the Peace of Westphalia (1648), but his attempts to raise money through taxation and his centralizing policy provoked the troubles of the Fronde (1648–53), during which he was several times forced to leave France.
By clever diplomacy he strengthened the crown and negotiated the favorable Peace of the Pyrenees at the end of the war with Spain (1659).

 See You In The Pit: Mazarin
A gentle, hazy rocker like "Wheats" has a candy shell that only hides the carefully sarcastic, bittersweet refrain: "I never loved you at all." My favorite Mazarin songs are the ones that are masquerading as lazy lullabies or tambourine-laden prayers or three-minute sparkling glasses of bubbly pop.
We're Already There is full of enchantment and energy, in carefully meted bursts like "The New American Apathy." Songs rarely outstay their welcome, pop hooks never get buried under too much studio trickery, and there's an overall sense of jubilation flirting with lots of reverb.
Mazarin: we missed you, and we're entirely too glad to have you back.

 Ink 19 :: Mazarin
The second helping from Mazarin (aka Quentin Stoltzfus) opens with "Go Home," a bliss-fest that drones along on one chord for over eight minutes with angelic falsetto vocals gliding along on top.
This opener is atypical of Mazarin, who perfected the three minute guitar-based pop song on its first album, Watch It Happen, like no other band has done in the past several years.
He is getting on with his life and perhaps trying to encourage others in his former situation to do the same.
