Main Events

Charles-Amédée served in the army of Flanders in 1645, and in the following year, he commanded the light cavalry at the siege of Courtrai. In 1652, he took part in the war of the Fronde, and fought at Bléneau and at the Faubourg St Antoine, where he was wounded. That year, he was killed in a duel by his brother-in-law, François de Vendôme, duke of Beaufort.[2]
