Bonjour!
I have a short piece of French text I don't understand. Can anyone help?

Le roi d'Angleterre donne un ordre:

Vous prendrez la Tour sous votre commandement er surveillance. Baldock etablira sur l'heure les commissions qui feront obeir.

How should I understand "les commissions qui vous feront obeir"? What is the subject here?

Merci beaucoup,
Justina

I got it. "Les commissions" are the official acts "who will make others obey you".

Oui, "les commissions" = le sujet de "feront obéir".

Le sens de cette phrase est la suivante : ces "commissions" (actes) feront en sorte que, en les voyant, les gens vous obéiront.
