Commentary


Très rare dans cet état de conservation. Trois types de liards sont connus pour la courte période du monnayage au nom d’Antoine de Bourbon et de Jeanne d’Albret. Ce type, avec une croix plaine et alésée au revers, reprend celle des liards d’Henri d’Albret et est le premier type de liard frappé sous Antoine et Jeanne.

Historical background


NAVARRE-BÉARN - ANTOINE DE BOURBON AND JEANNE D'ALBRET

(1555-1562)

Jeanne d'Albret was born in 1528. She is the daughter of Henri d'Albret (1516-1555) and Marguerite d'Angoulême, sister of Francis I King of France. The king married by proxy to the Duke of Cleves but the marriage was dissolved after three years. In 1548, she married the Duke of Vendôme, Antoine de Bourbon, who was appointed lieutenant general of the kingdom on the death of the king of France, Francis II, in 1560. Jeanne d'Albret and her children won the Court on an application for Catherine de Medici, but was publicly declared to close Calvinists causes, she had to return to his kingdom of Navarre. After her husband's death occurred in 1562, she reigned alone on Navarre. In 1572, she went back to court to negotiate the marriage of his son, Henry of Navarre (later Henry IV) with Margaret, sister of King Charles IX (Queen Margot). She died in Paris in these negotiations.
