About Charlotte Marguerite, duchesse de Montmorency

Charlotte Marguerite de Montmorency

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Charlotte-Marguerite de Montmorency (May 11, 1594 – December 2, 1650) was an heiress of one of France's leading ducal families, and Princess of Condé by her marriage to Henry II of Bourbon. She was also a mistress of Henry IV of France.

She was the daughter of Henry of Montmorency and his second wife, Louise de Budos.[1] In 1609, fifteen-year-old Charlotte-Marguerite wed the Prince of Condé.

Along with many other French nobles, her husband bitterly opposed the rule of Marshal d'Ancre, who abandoned the policy of the late King Henry IV. In September 1616, Henry II, Prince of Condé and Charlotte-Marguerite were arrested and imprisoned at Vincennes, where their daughter Anne Genevieve was conceived and born three years later, in 1619.

In 1632, Charlotte-Marguerite's only brother, Henry II, Duc de Montmorency was executed for intriguing against Cardinal Richelieu. The title passed to her. She was buried at the Carmel du faubourg Saint-Jacques, a Carmelite convent in Paris.
