    The Edict of Nantes of 1598 was the formal act recognizing the rights of Protestants - the Huguenots - in France.

    There were constant tensions between Protestants and Roman Catholics during this era in various parts of the world.

    Louis XIV simply used the prerogative of an Absolute Ruler ('God-given Right') to rescind the Edict and enforce a regulation only Roman Catholics could move to the colonies of France. Louis XIV came up with his own Edict of Fontainebleu in 1685.

    Tensions with England are not mentioned in the sources used for this response.

    For those who descend from John of Gaunt, you descend from Edward III, his father. Better to reference that than Henry IV. Here is the downside: in general every person reading this question is also involving royalty...Although its nonetheless cool that you may report it. It has to do with exponentially growing ancestors. You might have two mom and dad, 4 grandparents, eight pleasant grandparents, and so on. Go twenty generations back, and you have over 1 million ancestors, and Edward is greater than 20 generations. At 25, its 33 million. At 30, its one thousand million. See the place that is going? He has thousands if not billions of descendants at this factor, and that some distance back, now we have millions if not billions of ancestors. Most of those ancestors, are untraceable that far again, nonetheless. Connecting with royalty is about the one way you'll find records that historical...Which for your case is exactly what you probably did.
