Henri IV - An unfinished reign

France in the second half of the 16thcentury

The kingdom Henri IV left behind on 14 May 1610 was quite different from the one he discovered on the tour de France he had made at the side of his cousin Charles IX between March 1564 and May 1566. Demographically, geographically and economically, France underwent constant change throughout the life of the king. Nevertheless, there were some continuities that would help set the scene for Henri IV's reign.
