The last adventure of the Count and Huguenot of La Rochefoucauld

The last adventure of the Earl and Huguenot of Laroshfuko Larochefuca, King, Gershy, therefore, Francois, went, head, more, wedding, several, only, Bartholomewskaya, decided to door

The famous writer Francois Larochefuca had an ancestor, whose name was the same. Only the ancestor was Francois III, and the writer was Francois VI. This very Earl of La Rochefoucauld was also a famous and respected man, an experienced commander. He was also a Huguenot and came to Paris for the wedding of the King of Navarre, Heinrich Bourbon, and the sister of the King of France, Margot. Yes, yes, to the most wonderful wedding, after which St. Bartholomew's night happened. The count, although he was a friend of King Charles IX, did not survive her.
To begin with, it is worth noting that Charles IX really valued and respected Laroshfuko and tried to save him, asking him to stay with him, but not saying why. But the count promised to come to his mistress. He went to her head and went, bowing with the king, never to see him again.
He went to his mistress, and then went to where he would stay with his people. Toward morning, there was a knock at the door.In the evening, the earl with the king was fooling around. Therefore, after seeing people in masks behind the door, La Rochefoucauld decided that the King’s draws were continuing. Moreover, the king's friend did not think that such an ambush would happen. He opened the door and several swords immediately rested against his throat.
About 30 people attacked the house where Laroschoucoux and his friends were located. Sleeping Huguenots could not organize the defense right away. Therefore, two of them quickly got swords in the side, two more on the bullet in the head from a pistol. Before the swords managed to get only - Charles Kellenek and Antoine Marazin, lord de Gersche.
Kellenek did not last long, as he took a volley of arquebus in the chest. Gershi decided to sell his life at a higher price and was able to get through to the window, in passing, having dealt with several soldiers. Those who held Laroshfuko, who at first, apparently, wanted to leave alive, understood that the matter was taking a nasty turn. Therefore, La Rochefoucauld could not get to the dagger, much less to the sword and was pierced.

Meanwhile, Gershi looked out of the window, saw that the street was full of people, and there, at the height of St. Bartholomew's night. Then he realized that it was pointless to jump, turned over a table and several chairs, arranging fortifications.It is clear that he no longer hoped for anything, but he was not even going to give his life.
Fabulous rescue in such situations only happen in Dumas books and fairy tales. Ten minutes later, Gerschy, the last Huguenot from the company of La Rochefoucauld, went to another world. But first he sent four attackers ahead of himself and five more wounded.
Terrible deal - civil war. Especially when one of the parties was going to solve the problem in such a way as Giza and Catherine de Medici on the St. Bartholomew night.
