About Louise Marie de Montmorency

Louise de Montmorency (1496–1547) was a French noblewoman from the ancient House of Montmorency. She was the younger sister of Anne de Montmorency, Constable of France, and the mother of Gaspard de Coligny, Admiral of France.

Louise married her first husband, Ferri de Mailly, in 1511.[1] This marriage produced a daughter, Madeleine de Mailly. Ferry died in 1513, and Louise remarried in 1514 to Gaspard I de Coligny. From her second marriage she had three sons, all of whom played important roles in the first period of the French Wars of Religion: Odet, Cardinal de Châtillon; Gaspard, the Admiral; and François, Seigneur d'Andelot.

She had considerable patronage power independently of her husband,[2][3] and had an important role in spreading the influence of Calvinism in France in the 16th Century.[4]
