This chapter provides an in-depth analysis on the evolution of the Foreign Ministry by illustrating its history, structure, and practice. It was only until Cardinal Richelieu's period that definitive changes occurred in the Ministry due to his desire for professional competency. The chapter asserts that the Revolutionary period and Napoleonic era gave added impetus to the bureaucratization of foreign affairs and it was in the year of 1825 when the structure of the Foreign Ministry was well established. However, due to the unstable politics in 19th-century France, little changes occurred on its structure. The political and commercial division and other specialist services of the Quai d'Orsay and its functions are discussed in this chapter as are the recruitment procedures conducted.

Keywords:   Foreign Ministry, Cardinal Richelieu, Revolutionary period, Napoleonic era, France, Quai d'Orsay
