Historical background


CHARLES X, CARDINAL OF BOURBON

(02/08/1589-9/05/1590)

Charles X, uncle and godfather of Henry IV and cousin of Francis of Lorraine, was born in 1523. Cardinal and papal legate in Avignon from 1565 to 1590, it was he who blessed the marriage of Marguerite de Valois and Henri IV on the eve of St. Bartholomew. On the death of the Duke of Alençon, youngest brother of Henry III, he was recognized by the League and by Philip II of Spain as presumptive heir to the crown. Recognized by Henri in 1588, as his next of kin, he was arrested at Blois December 23, 1588 while being murdered the Guises. He was proclaimed king by the Leaguers after the murder of Henry III 2 August 1589 but died a prisoner in Fontenay-le-Comte May 9, 1590.
