  • Madrid (Spanje) 1525 - 1529
    After his father was captured in the Battle of Paia and transported to Spain, Henri and his older brother Francis were exchanged as hostages: they remained in Sapin for four years
  • Parijs 1529 - 1559
    He continued most of his father's policies in international relations, culture and war. His reign was marked by the relentless persecution of the Hugenots, with torture, death and exile. He continued his father's wars of opposition against the Habsburg, with the 8th Italian war (1551-1559), with a very mixed result. When, after the abdication of Charles V, the Habsburg empire split in two (Spain/Flanders and the Holy Roman Empire/Austria). Henri's aggression was mainly focused on Flanders. In the end the French and Henri were forced to conclude the Peace of Cateu-Cambrésis in 1559 with Elizabeth of England and Philip II of Spain. He had to denounce all future claims to Italy. During the celebrations of the Peace he became wounded and died eventually, leaving his wife Catharine de Medici as regent of his three successors.
