Henri IV - An unfinished reign

The roots of the legend (1589-1615)

"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." A few hours before his death, Henri IV spoke these words those around him. Was it a premonition? Most likely it was Henri's awareness of his exceptional destiny, around which he had already begun to construct a myth in his lifetime, through the widespread use of propaganda.
