In France, Henry IV issues the Edict of St. Germain-en-Laye, which grants Huguenots liberty of worship. However, the Huguenots hold an assembly at Sainte-Foy, and respond to the Edict by demanding greater concessions. As well as guarantees that its terms will be observed, they call for full equality with Catholics in public life.
