Historical Context Note


Henry IV enters Paris, which has been under the domination of the Catholic League since 1588. The rest of the country gradually submits to his sovereignty, and the League disintegrates. Henry subsequently compensates League generals and nobles for their submission to his authority with a total of 32 million livres.
