He was elevated to the Court of France to Louis XII and was knighted at the battle of Agnadel in 1509. Friend of Francis I, he married Renée de Bourbon in 1515 and distinguished himself at the Battle of Marignano. In 1517, the King of France was godfather to his eldest son Francis. Between Charles V, who had been elected emperor in 1521 and Francis, Antoine always maintained strict neutrality. Many times, the Duke of Lorraine had to fight the German troops Calvinists. He supported the truce Fere which lasted ten years (1538-1548) and died in 1544.
