La politique anglaise d'Élisabeth I par rapport à la France sous Henri III (1574-1589) : menées secrètes ou diplomatie sincère?
|Advisor:||Waele, Michel De|
|Abstract:||The subject of this thesis is the foreign policy of Elizabeth I, Queen of England (1558-1603), toward France during the reign of Henry III, King of France of the dynasty of Valois. The first purpose was to determinate how Elizabeth I, protestant queen, and her ambassadors, reacted toward the wars of Religion between French Catholics and Protestants. We also study their reactions toward the princely ultra catholic family of Guise and the group they leaded, the Holy League. Elizabeth chose to act secretly with the protestants rebels first (1574-1577) but, she adopted a sincere diplomacy with the crown subsequently (1584-1589) to obviate that France fall into Guise’s and their ally’s hands, Phillip II, King of Spain.|
