Description

    Henry IV of France Document Signed. One page with integral blank, 8.25" x 13.5", written in French, untranslated, 1606. Henry IV (1553 - 1610), also known as Henri le Grand, ruled as king of France from 1589 to 1610 and King of Navarre from 1572 to 1610, and was the first monarch of the Bourbon dynasty in France. In 1598 he enacted the Edict of Nantes guaranteeing religious liberties to Protestants, effectively ending the civil war. One of the most popular French kings, both during and after his reign, Henry showed great care for the welfare of his subjects and displayed an unusual religious tolerance for the time. He was murdered by a fanatical Catholic, Fran├žois Ravaillac. Document is written in florid script and is boldly signed "Henri," with the signatures and rubrics of two other unknown individuals. An embossed stamp of the House of Bourbon coat of arms appears at lower left. Very good. Document is heavily waterstained at lower third; approximately 3.5" x 1.25" section of paper missing from lower edge of both leaves. Docketed on verso.
