LouisXIII (1601 – 1643) came to the throne at the age of eight and a half years, when his father, Henri IV, was assassinated. His mother, Marie de Médicis then ruled as regent. Even after Louis came into his majority in 1614, Marie refused to cede power. Seizing his rightful power in 1617, Louis confined his mother to internal exile. In 1619 Marie escaped from the Chateau de Blois. In 1620, she raised an army and started a civil war against her son, which failed and ended with her total defeat. This declaration of loyalty to Louis XIII from Poitiers, near to the Chateau of Blois, was first printed in Poitiers, then reprinted in Paris in 1620. Not in Lindsey and Neu.
