Main Events

Originally destined for the priesthood, Philippe resigned the bishopric of Geneva (given to him as a child) when he was made count of Genevois. He served under Louis XII., with whom he was present at the battle of Agnadello in 1509, under the emperor Charles V in 1520, and finally under his nephew, Francis I. In 1528, Francis gave him the duchy of Nemours and married him to Charlotte of Orléans-Longueville.[2]
