caption: HENRY III of France (1551-1589), fourth son of Henry II and Catherine de 'Medici. After a period of military success in religious wars, in 1573 he was elected King of Poland and left France to Krakow. After just a year, the death of Charles IX in 1574, he returned to France, leaving the Polish crown adventurously and without the consent of the Diet, and was succeeded to the throne. He found a France more than ever divided between the forces of the Holy Catholic League of Henry of Guise, the royal faction and Protestant at the head of Henry of Navarre. The period of new battles then took the name of "the war of the three Henrys", and ended with the murder of Henry III at the hands of the League monk Jacques Clement; died without a male heir, the last of the Valois, the throne passed to Henry Bourbon of Navarre, who finally had allied with the forces of the king. Representation inspired by the portrait painted by François Clouet in 1581. Lithography colored, nineteenth century France
