Historical background


ARDENNES - PRINCIPALITY OF SEDAN - HENRI DE LA TOUR D'AUVERGNE

(1594-1623)

Henri de La Tour d'Auvergne (1555-1623) is the son of François III de La Tour, killed at the battle of Saint-Quentin, and a descendant of the house of Montmorency. He is sent to the Court at the age of ten and is attached to François d'Alençon. He was at the siege of La Rochelle in 1573 but converted to Calvinism around 1576 and became lieutenant general of Haut-Languedoc. In 1581, after having accompanied François d'Alençon, Duke of Anjou to the Netherlands, he became first gentleman of Henri de Navarre and distinguished himself by seeking reinforcements against the League in 1590. With the support of Henri IV, he married Charlotte de la Marck in 1591, sole heiress of Bouillon and the principality of Sedan.. Marshal of France in 1592, he is very close to Henri IV after his abjuration which allows him to inherit from his wife in 1594. He then married Elisabeth de Nassau, the daughter of Guillaume le Taciturne, with whom he had eight children, six girls and two boys, Frédéric-Maurice de La Tour, Prince of Sedan, and the great Turenne.. He served in the military campaigns until the pacification of 1597-1598. Ally of the Great, dissatisfied, he is involved in the conspiracy of Biron and his lands are confiscated from him. He begged for forgiveness in 1606 and regained his possessions. After the death of Henri IV, he intrigued against Sully then allied himself with the princes revolted against the regent but refused the post of generalissimo of the Calvinists during the assembly of La Rochelle in 1621. He died in 1623 leaving the image of a turbulent and unfaithful prince towards Henri IV to whom he nevertheless owed his career and fortune..
