History of Early modern age in Europe

The Early modern age, following the traditional chronological division, comprises the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. This period is identified by a specific political or social order or regime (the Old Regime), characterized by the jurisdictional and patrimonial conception of sovereignty.
