Marmousets

Marmousets (märmōzāˈ) [key], [Fr., = little fellows], ministers of King Charles V of France, so called by the great nobles, who were contemptuous of their humble origins. Olivier de Clisson was the most prominent Marmouset. They were recalled by King Charles VI when he reached his majority, but they fell from power after he became mad (1392). Their administration attempted to restore sound and conservative government.
