Duke of Aumale Claude


French nobleman, a prince of Lorraine by birth as the third son of Claude, Duke of Guise and Antoinette de Bourbon.

As part of the Treaty of Boulogne which ended the war of the Rough Wooing, Claude, Marquis of Mayenne and François de Vendôme, Vidame de Chartres, were among six French hostages sent to England. After his father died on 12 April 1550, Claude was allowed to come to Scotland, with a passport from Edward VI dated 11 May, to see his sister Mary of Guise and wrote from Edinburgh on 18 May that he would view the strong places of the realm.

On 1 August 1547, he married Louise de Brézé (c. 1518 – January 1577), dame d'Anet, the daughter of Louis de Brézé, seigneur d'Anet, and Diane de Poitiers. They had eleven children.

When his brother Francis acceded as Duke of Guise in 1550 he ceded to Claude the title of Duke of Aumale. He was killed by a culverin shot while besieging La Rochelle on 3 March 1573 at age 46.

Sy Scholfield quotes from Le Cabinet historique: moniteur des bibliothèques et des archives, Volume 14 (Wittersheim, 1868), page 201: "Le mercredy jour de Sainct - Pierre d ' aoust , acoucha , madame le Guise , à son chasteau de Ioinville , à troys heures du matiņ , d ' ung filz... Moréri, 1er août 1526."

(Translation: On Wednesday, day of Saint-Pierre in August, Madame le Guise gave birth to a son at her castle in Joinville, at three o'clock in the morning ... Moréri, 1 August 1526).

The date of 1 August in the Julian calendar was a Wednesday. Wikipedia has 18 August apparently in error.
