31 March 1547 - 10 July 1559
Henry II (1519-59), king of France, succeeded his father, Francis I, in 1547. His wife was Catherine de Medici. His principal advisors were the Guises, and he greatly oppressed his Protestant subjects. His first war was with England in which he recovered Boulogne from the English. He was equally successful against the Emperor Charles V, and Calais was recovered (1558). In July 1559 Henry II died in Paris, from a wound received at a tournament. See Ranke?s Civil Wars and Monarchy in France, etc. (English trans. 1852-61).
