Louis Condé

Louis Condé is a cousin of some degree to King Francis. He had deep feelings for Queen Mary but always kept them hidden. However, she became emotionally dependent on him after her sexual assault and they soon became lovers. Making him an enemy of France. He soon reached for the crown and married Queen Elizabeth of England. Mary aided in the help of his escape so he wouldn't be put to death for treason of the agreement of marrying Queen Elizabeth.


Louis Condé is an honest man, with noble intentions and is very forth-coming about things. The things he did were for the sake of his heart and his life. However, he had found himself in a sensitive situation having been told to spy on the French court by his brother, King Antoine of Navarre. He is at times very envious and impulsive. But despite it, he is very caring for his family and friends. He fights for the right thing and has strong opinions. He is in love with Mary queen consort of France

Early Life

Not much is known about Louis Condé's life. He comes from money and almost became The Dauphin of France when he and Francis were very young after the young Prince became sick. He was raised along side his older brother Antoine.

Season 2

Louis Condé is informed by Jacob Rivell of a Protestant gathering, but they're afraid to worship in their villages so they come here, despite persecution. Christians who only want the freedom to worship. But is he want to prevent them from suffering the same fate as his nephew, they need his help, King Francis has sent a letter to Rome, asking the Pope to recall his Inquisitors. Confronting Rome in this way takes courage, and gives them hope that Francis is a tolerant man. They want to get their minister an audience with The King and Queen. Unbeknow to him, it was a ploy.

He has been developing a secret romance with Queen Mary.

He was then pushed to become the king of France by his soldiers and from the English.

Season 3

In Extreme Measures, he's mentioned by Antoine as being held captive. Antoine wishes to bargain with the French crown for safe passage through the mountains for Louis in exchange for converting to Catholicism and crediting it to Mary.
