Henri IV the Green Gallant

108 collectible items

From chaotic origins in the shadow of a massacre to the coronation of the first king of the House of Bourbon, from Navarre to France or vice versa, from conversions and more conversions to reconversions, from variegated rallies to cavalcades on white steeds, from flowery beards to reputed or supposed gallantries, from the flamboyance of a reign to a sordid assassination on a street corner – a monetary tribute to the Great and Green Gallant king Henry IV.
