Historical Context Note


The Seventh War of Religion in France is ended by the Peace of Fleix, which restores the terms of the earlier (1577) Peace of Bergerac. By the terms of this agreement, the Huguenot minority secures important concessions for exercising their religion, and a town in each district is ceded to them, but this does mean that they are disallowed from practising their religion anywhere else. They retain nine strongholds and representation in four provincial assemblies.
