Henri IV - An unfinished reign

Glossary

Henri Ier de Condé

1555-1588

Henri I de Condé was the son of Louis de Condé, and one of Henri de Navarre's companions.

Like Henri, was held at the court of France in the wake of the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre, and was also obliged to abjure Protestantism. When Henri fled the court in 1576 for Guyenne, Condé faded into the background. Wounded in the Battle of Coutras (1587), he died in 1588.
