Historical background


NAVARRE-BÉARN - HENRI III OF NAVARRE, II AND OF BÉARN Marguerite de Valois

(1572-1589)

Henry of Navarre (1553-1610), grand-son of Henri d'Albret, is the son of Antoine de Bourbon and Queen Jeanne of Navarre. The child is raised in the Reformed confession by his mother. His father died at the siege of Rouen in 1562 and his mother died June 4, 1572 just before the marriage of Henry and Marguerite de Navarre (1553-1615), 18 August 1572. Young Henry escaped the massacre of St. Bartholomew, August 24, but remains a prisoner to the Court of France until February 1576. Henry fled, became the leader of the Protestant party, then heir to the throne after the death of Francis. Henri III was assassinated on August 2 and Henri II of Navarre became Henry IV of France. It will still take ten years to conquer his kingdom before the Edict of Nantes of 13 April 1598 which ended the Wars of Religion.
