About Antoine de Bourbon, duc de Vendôme

Antoine de Bourbon (1518 † 1562), fils de Charles, duc de Vendôme, et de Françoise d'Alençon. Il est le père du futur Henri IV. Il porta d'abord les titres de comte de Marle puis de Beaumont. Le 25 mars 1537, il succéda à la mort de son père comme duc de Vendôme. Il épousa à Moulins le 20 octobre 1548 Jeanne d'Albret, fille du roi de Navarre. A la mort de son beau-père le 25 mai 1555, il devint, du chef de sa femme, roi de Navarre. En tant que chef de la maison de Bourbon, il est le premier prince du sang.

Il passa sa vie à guerroyer pour le roi de France. Pierre de Ronsard, dans Les Hymnes" (Hymne de Henri II, v. 427), le cite parmi les "Mars" qui sont au service de Henri II. Proche de la Réforme, il participe aux cérémonies protestantes mais sans véritables convictions religieuses, il oscilla plusieurs fois, entre le catholicisme et le protestantisme. Ses désaccords conjugaux avec la très rigoureuse Jeanne d'Albret et l'appel du pouvoir auprès de Catherine de Médicis l'amène à choisir le camp catholique (1560).

Son frère cadet Louis de Bourbon, prince de Condé devint alors le chef du parti protestant, tandis que Catherine de Médicis, régente au nom de son fils Charles IX, le nomma lieutenant général du royaume (1561). Durant la première guerre de religion, il participe au siège de Rouen tenue par les protestants et fut mortellement blessé le 3 novembre 1562. Il mourut peu après, le 17, aux Andelys.

Antoine of Navarre

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Antoine de Bourbon, duc de Vendôme (22 April 1518 – 17 November 1562), was head of the House of Bourbon from 1537 to 1562, and jure uxoris king of Navarre from 1555 to 1562.

He was born at La Fère, Picardie, France, the son of Charles de Bourbon, duc de Vendôme (1489-1537) and his wife, Francoise d'Alencon (d. 1550). He was the older brother of Louis I de Bourbon, Prince de Condé.

On 20 October 1548 at Moulins he married Joanna III, Queen regnant of Navarre, daughter of Henry II of Navarre and his wife Margaret of Angoulême. By his marriage, he became Count of Foix, of Bigorre, of Armagnac, of Perigord, and Viscount of Béarn. The Kingdom of Navarre had been occupied by the Spanish since 1512, and Antoine tried to re-establish it. He was ready to sacrifice anything to his political interests.

Antoine appears not to have had real religious conviction and officially changed religions several times. His reconversion to Catholicism separated him from his wife. He had an affair with Louise de la Béraudière, "la belle Rouet," with whom he had a son in 1555.

Although his brother was the head of the Protestant faction, he spent most of his life fighting for the King of France. Catherine de' Medici, regent for her son Charles IX, named him lieutenant general of the kingdom in 1561. When his wife allowed the Huguenots to sack the chapel of Vendôme and the churches of the town in 1562, he threatened to send her to a convent. She took refuge in Béarn.

Antoine was vain and unstable. He often disappointed his followers and was manipulated by his superiors and out-witted by his adversaries.

He laid siege to Rouen and was mortally wounded on 13 November 1562. He died at Les Andelys, Eure.
