Dutch Biography

Louise de Coligny (Châtillon-sur-Loing, 23 september 1555 - Fontainebleau, 13 november 1620) was de vierde echtgenote van Willem van Oranje en dochter van Gaspard de Coligny en Charlotte de Laval.
Zij overleed op 13 november 1620 en werd op 24 mei 1621 bijgezet in de grafkelder van Oranje-Nassau in de Nieuwe Kerk te Delft.
Op 26 mei 1572 was zij op 17-jarige leeftijd getrouwd met Charles de Téligny,een protestantse diplomaat. Nadat zowel Charles als haar vader tijdens de Bartholomeusnacht (24 augustus 1572) voor haar ogen was vermoord, vluchtte zij naar Zwitserland.
Op 12 april 1583 trouwde zij met prins Willem I in Antwerpen.Dit was het enige jaar sinds 1572 dat zij niet in rouwkleding was gekleed. Het huwelijk van Willem en Louise was politiek beladen, haar Franse afkomst maakte Louise niet erg populair in de Nederlanden. Hun zoon Frederik Hendrik werd geboren op 29 januari 1584. Op 10 juli van datzelfde jaar overleed Willem van Oranje als gevolg van de aanslag van Balthasar Gerards en was Louise voor de tweede maal weduwe geworden.
Nadat ze in 1619 tevergeefs bij haar stiefzoon prins Maurits had getracht de executie van Johan van Oldenbarnevelt te voorkomen,vertrok ze echter naar Frankrijk,waar ze tot haar dood in 1620 verbleef bij de Franse koningin-moeder Maria de' Medici.
Louise de Coligny werd de vierde vrouw van Willem van Oranje. Zij trouwde in 1583 met Willem van Oranje en uit dit huwelijk werd Frederik Hendrik geboren. Na de dood van Willem van Oranje in 1584 na een aanslag door Balthasar Gerards bleef zij met haar baby achter. Zij koos in de geschillen die er waren tijdens het Twaalfjarige Bestand de kant van de remonstranten en vertrok in 1620 naar Frankrijk waar zij in dat zelfde jaar overleed.

DeColigny-11 and Coligny-1 appear to represent the same person because: The vitals match (name, dates and places, and parents) all match. Please merge into Coligny-1.

Isn't this Louise a duplicate of Louisa (Coligny-1) daughter of Gaspard de Coligny and Charlotte de Laval? Coligny and Jacqueline de Montbel were only married 15 years after this Louise's birth.
