Important diplomatic relations man who was a nobleman and a great military on the case of the Valetine to Spain and Switzerland, and that the proposed sister of the King and the Prince of Wales in England marriage. All articles and letters to track realistic monitoring of diplomatic missions (a historical introduction allows each to take the challenge of each embassy): these missions which greatly interested the show France's position with Louis Bassompierres XIII. Upon his return and after taking part in the siege of La Rochelle, he was thrown into the Bastille for 12 years intrigues by Richelieu. It is traditionally accepted that, like his memoirs, these embassies were also written in prison, but it is unclear how such a place, Bassompierres was able to achieve such a work that required extensive research and access to archives, as well as the work seems to be that much of a historian; it bears the mark in its writing and structure; but it has been initiated, to be carried out in collaboration to complete the work memory. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
