Historical background


LORRAINE - CITY OF METZ

1563-1619

Saint Etienne is always represented with one or more stones because he was stoned, becoming the first martyr after Christ. The political situation has changed in Metz in the sixteenth century, freed from the tutelage of the bishop, the city is now administered by the citizens. Henry II took possession of the Three Bishoprics in 1552, which are confirmed by the Peace of Cateau-Cambrai in 1559, but Metz will be permanently incorporated into the kingdom after the Peace of Nijmegen in 1678. City coinage ceased in 1661.
