Louis Condé was a prominent Protestant leader and general, and founder of the House of Condé.

Early LifeEdit

Louis Condé was born in Vendôme, and was the fifth son of Charles de Bourbon, Duke of Vendôme, and the younger brother of King Antoine who married Queen Jeanne their son, and became King Henry IV of France.

Later in LifeEdit

As a general in the French army, Condé fought at the Siege of Metz in 1552, when Francis, Duke of Guise successfully defended the city from the forces of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, and again at the Battle of St. Quentin in 1557. After his conversion to Protestantism, he was suspected to have become involved in the Conspiracy of Amboise in 1560, a plot by the Huguenots and members of the House of Bourbon to abduct the adolescent King Francis II and usurp the power of the House of Guise, who were the leaders of the Catholic party. The plot failed, leading to the massacre of many Huguenots.

Condé commanded the Huguenots in the The French Wars of Religion and was captured at Dreux in 1562. At Orléans, the Duke of Guise was assassinated, and when Catherine de' Medici's feared that the war might drag on led her to negotiate a truce, Condé negotiated the Peace of Amboise with the Catholic party in 1563, which gave the Huguenots some religious toleration.

DeathEdit

In another religious civil war, Condé was killed at Jarnac in the Battle of Jarnac, 1569. [1]
