Café Histoire: Le ’bon roi’ Henri IV (1553 - 1610)

Monday 7 November 2011 17:30-19:00

Institut français d’Ecosse

13 Randolph Crescent Edinburgh EH3 7TT

Henri IV remains to this day the king who wished that ‘every ploughman could afford a chicken in his pot’. He becomes King of France in spite of his involvement in the Wars of Religion as a Huguenot (Protestant chief) and Prince of the Blood. This Café Histoire will go back over this historical figure that was both loved and hated.
