Jeanne d'Albret

Jeanne d’Albret (b.Pau 1528-d.Paris 1572) was Queen of Navarre from 1555 to 1572, wife of Antoine de Bourbon, duke of Vendome and mother of Henry IV of France.

In the first year of her reign, Jeanne d'Albret called a conference of beleaguered Huguenot ministers which led to her declaring Calvinism as the official religion of her kingdom.
