The Third Civil War of Religion is ended in France by the signing
of the Peace of St. Germain-en-Laye. This is effectively a victory
for the Huguenots, in that this treaty grants them now concessions
including liberty of conscience and an amnesty. In addition, they
are granted the strongholds of La Rochelle, Montauban, Cognac and
La Charité as places of refuge. Admiral Coligny, the Huguenot
Commander, becomes dominant at the French court, supplanting the
influence of the Duke of Guise for the next two years.
