Jeanne d’Albret (1528-1572): We are back for Part Two of the captivating story of Jeanne d’Albret, the French princess who took a stand against the political and spiritual corruption of the French aristocracy for the cause of Christ. Not only did Jeanne bring radical reform and religious tolerance to her kingdoms, but she became the backbone of the Huguenot movement. What’s more, her godly influence on her son led him to eventually issue the Edict of Nantes, a revolutionary document that brought religious freedom to France. It is hard to imagine what course the nation of France might have taken in the 16th and 17th centuries without the dynamic spiritual influence of this woman worth knowing!
