Jacques Nompar de Caumont
Escaped of accuracy to the Massacre of the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre, the Force followed the party of Henri de Navarre to the sides of which it made his first weapons and of which there remained always the faithful companion and remained to him devoted until the end. It was in fits with body royal when, the May 14th 1610, Ravaillac carried the mortal blow to the king.
Large servant of the crown, it accepted the stick of Marshal of France in 1622 and, in 1637, reached the dignity of duke and par. He and his/her son Armand Nompar took an active part in the war carried out by Louis XIII and Richelieu.
Its Mémoires (Paris, 1843,4. vol. in-8°) is accompanied by those of its two sons, the elder one, Armand de Caumont, duke of the Force, and the second, Henri Nompar de Caumont, duke of the Force.
