$ 750.00

Henry IV: The founder of the Bourbon Dynasty. Henry succeeded the corrupt Valois dynasty by converting to the Catholic faith( “Paris is worth a mass.” He was not only a brilliant soldier but a compassionate and generous man. He, like all the Bourbons, drank a great deal of wine, hunted anything that moved, had a series of over 60 mistresses and was a glutton. However what he had in life we wanted for all his subjects (“a chicken in every opt on Sundays”). He was assassinated by a man who thought he was told by God to do it.
Note: It is said that Henry IV smelled like a goat.
Note on Lenticular: The cicada is a symbol of rebirth and survival. The Bourbons gave France a chance at renewal and Henry was definitely a survivor.
