Georges of Trémoille
Its rise begins in February 1427, when Pierre de Giac is assassinated by the devoted henchmen of the Connétable Arthur de Richemont, which introduces it near the king of France Charles VII. It quickly becomes one of the Favori S, and obtains about it the station of great chamberlain. It causes in September of the same year the disgrace of the constable. This one revolts the following year and carries out a war deprived against Trémoille as from July (1428). Peace is signed the March 5th 1432 between Georges of Trémoille, Arthur de Richemont and its brother the duke Jean IV of Brittany.
In 1440, it takes part in the Praguerie, with the dukes of Bourbon, of Brittany, of Alençon and Dunois, and the Dolphin Louis XI.
By its first marriage (1416) with Jeanne II of Auvergne (1378-1424), countess of Auvergne and Boulogne (1404-1424), girl of Jean II and Aliénor de Comminges, it itself was titrated count d' Auvergne and of Boulogne of 1416 with 1424.
By a second marriage, with widowed Catherine of Isle-Bouchard of Pierre de Giac, it is itself the maternal grandfather of Jean IV (or V) of Auvergne (1467-1501), born Jean of the Tower, another count d' Auvergne (cousin with the 8th civil degree of the aforesaid Jeanne II, died without posterity) and great-great-grandfather of Catherine de Médicis and Diane of Poitiers. He is the father of Georges of Trémoille (1427-1481).
On a purely purely anecdotic basis, Georges of Trémoille, via the two oldest daughters of Catherine de Médicis, the princesses Elisabeth de France (1546-1568) and Claude of France (1547-1575), is the ancestor of a not easily quantifiable number of European sovereigns and other characters notable, of XVIe century until our days, without counting the descendants related to his closer relationship.
