henry iv of france was pretty badass as far as french kings go.  actually, when it comes down to it…most french kings are known for messing things up beyond repair (louis xvi, we’re looking in your direction). so it’s nice to remember one for his great accomplishments.  henry’s political career started off pretty rocky when his wedding to marguerite de valois (daughter of catherine d’ medici and henry ii) turned into the st. bartholemew’s day massacre.  this was yet another hurdle in the battle for religious peace that didn’t end until (oh wait, ha, it’s still going on)…in any event, it is in religion where we see henry really shine.  at this time catholics and protestants were fighting for their faith and their lives.  henry was fortunate to have lived the life of both a protestant and a catholic and after converting he was able to secure the crown of france.  as king, he enacted the edict of nantes and ended religious strife among his people.  protestants and catholics started hugging and dancing in the streets, it was a beautiful thing.  he remains one of france’s most popular leaders and is remembered as henry the great.1: cold feet before his wedding (massacre): shirt by alexis mabille, jacket by john varvatos, pants and shoes by hermes2: pondering conversion on the streets: jacket by band of outsiders, shirt by michael bastian, cardigan by robert geller, shoes by lanvin3: i ended a civil war today, what did you do? cardigan by louis vuitton, shirt by hermes, pants and shoes by lanvin
