In 1586, the war raged between Henri iii, King of France, allied to henry of will against henri de Navarre, future henri iv. This is the famous \"War of the Three Henri.\" Catherine de medicis tries the path of negotiations.
She arranges an interview with Henri de Navarre, who is also her stepson (he married Margot, daughter of catherine de medicis). The meeting is scheduled for early December.
This deadline is carefully prepared by the Queen in a tense context. On November 28, she wrote to one of her faithful soldiers: \"We have granted, the king of Navarre and I, that we will gather in the six or seventh of next month to look at the means of a good and endible peace and general rest of the kingdom.\" Negotiations are well underway and each side is releasing prisoners.
Henri de Navarre agrees to a truce from the rock, Huguenot stronghold. Despite this, the Protestants continued the fight, taking the town of Rocroi in particular.Catherine, however, does not neglect any details to welcome the future king of France. She wrote on 10 December: \"We agree that the place of our interview will be in a castle called Saint-brice [5km cognac]. I will have my apartment on one side and said Sieur de Navarre his, and there is a pretty nice room to assemble us there.
\" The interview is set for 13. Henry comes \"with about four hundred horses from his suite and those lords who are with him.\" Catherine recounts in her letters the meeting, the reciprocal reproaches, the game of negotiations, the hesitations of Henri, and his lack of decision, objecting that he must tell his English and German allies before making any decision.It was not until 1588 that reunification took place, with the conversion of the navarre henry to Catholicism and its official designation as heir to the throne.
