Salut:

Here is a short passage from "Les Misérables" de V. Hugo:

M. Myriel était fils d'un conseiller au parlement d'Aix ; noblesse de robe. On contait de lui que son père, le réservant pour hériter de sa charge.

What is the meaning of the expression in blue?

An English or Spanish equivalent will do, or an explanation in French, English, Spanish.

Merci.

Salut Tito!

Voici un lien qui te mènera vers un article qui, selon moi, répond bien à ta question tout en faisant la distinction entre "noblesse de robe" et "noblesse d'épée". Bonne lecture!
