Historical background


BULGE - PRINCIPALITY OF SEDAN - HENRI DE LA TOUR D'Auvergne

(1594-1623)

Henri de La Tour d'Auvergne (1555-1623) was the son of François III de La Tour, killed at the battle of St. Quentin, and a descendant of the house of Montmorency. He was sent to the Court at the age of ten and is attached to François d'Alençon. It is the seat of La Rochelle in 1573 but converted to Calvinism to 1576 and became lieutenant-general of Upper Languedoc. In 1581, after having accompanied François d'Alençon, Duke of Anjou in the Netherlands, he became the first gentleman of Henry of Navarre and is characterized by seeking reinforcements against the League in 1590. With the support of Henry IV, he married Charlotte de la Marck in 1591, sole heiress of Bouillon and the principality of Sedan. Marshal of France in 1592, it is very close to Henri IV after his abjuration which allows him to inherit his wife in 1594. He married his second wife Elizabeth of Nassau, daughter of William the Silent, by 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 to pacify 1597-1598. Great ally, unhappy, it is involved in the conspiracy of Biron and his land confiscated it. He begs forgiveness in 1606 and found property. After the death of Henry IV, Sully then plot against allied princes rebelled against the regent but refused the post of chief of the Calvinists at the meeting in La Rochelle 1621. He died in 1623, leaving the image of a turbulent and unfaithful to Prince Henri IV who he was yet the career and fortune.
