Henri IV - An unfinished reign

Guyenne and the second dissent

The Guyenne to which Henri returned would forge his destiny. He had known this territory since he was a child; it lay at the heart of the "promised land" of French Protestantism and was also the land of his party. For Henri, Guyenne was, successively, a refuge after his escape from the French court, a jurisdiction after his appointment as governor, and finally a land of action and apprenticeship. In the ensuing decades, it would shape the personality and the political ideas of the future king of France.
