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.
