I'm under the impression that Les lois de la révolution ordered women equal rights to inherit, but that was abolished later. So, what was the law like afterwards? Did primogeniture exist, or did daughters also inherit their fathers? In what proportion?
I've searched this with terms 'primogeniture', 'inheritance law', 'France', 'rights to inherit', 'women', 'histoire du droit de succession', 'droit d'aînesse', 'droit à l'héritage', 'droits de la femme', etc. I seem to find information only on the current law and on the situation between the Middle Ages and the French Revolution, or on succession in European monarchies. GoogleBooks mentions some interesting-looking books, but without a preview.
Thank you in advance!
