Henri IV - An unfinished reign

The assassination

When Henri IV arose on that sun-filled Friday of 14 May 1610, he did not know that he was about to go down in legend, albeit involuntarily. During the day, he shared his premonitory thoughts with Guise and Bassompierre : "You do not know me now, you others; but one of these days I shall die, and when you have lost me, then you will understand my worth and the difference between me and other men.
