Abraham Nicolas Amelot de la Houssaye (1634–1706) was a French historian and publicist. In his Histoire du gouvernement de Venise he undertook to explain, and above all to criticize, the administration of that republic, and to expose the causes of its decadence. The work was printed by the king’s printer and dedicated to Louvois, which points to the probability that the government did not disapprove of it. It appeared in March 1676, and provoked a heated protest from the Venetian ambassador, Giustiniani. The author was sent to the Bastille, where he remained, however, only six weeks.
