Henry IV King of France, 1553-1610; Saint Bartholomew's Day, Massacre of, France, 1572 - Fiction.; Marguerite Queen, consort of Henry IV, King of France, 1553-1615
Queen Marguerite of Valois, sister of Charles IX and wife of Henry of Navarre, is surrounded by political and amorous intrigue during the Massacre of St. Bartholomew.

One does not find him profaning public edifices by caus.
