Check on local officials
Phillip Augustus strengthened royal government in many ways. He used paid middle-class officials who would owe their loyalty to him. He granted charters to many new towns, organized a standing army, and introduced a new national tax. Before his death he had become the most powerful ruler in Europe.
Louis did much to improve royal Government. He sent out roving officials to check on local officials. He expanded the the royal courts, outlawed private wars and ended serfdom in his lands. France was an efficient centralized monarchy.
Phillip IV extended royal power. Philip IV tried to collect new taxes from the Clergy. Him doing that led to clash with Pope Boniface VIII. Phillip IV was forbade to tax the clergy without papal consent. During his struggle with the Pope, he rallied French support by setting up the Estates General it had all three estates; clergy, nobles, and townspeople.
