Charles IX, also dead without children, has as a successor his brother Henri III (1574-1589).
In a fifth war, the Protestants for combined the Policies, catholics moderated, but Henri de Guise covers glory with Dormans (1575), and Henri III, jealous of him, grants to the Protestants, by the peace of Sir, of the advantageous conditions (1576).
Henri de Guise, who aspires secretly to the throne, then organizes a vast league the purpose of which is defense of the catholic religion, betrayed by the king; Henri III, to disconcert his rival, declares the chief of this league, but the members of a league refuse to recognize his authority and join together troops.
The threatened Protestants renew the fight in a sixth and a seventh war, finished each one by a peace which is only one truce (1577-1580).
An eighth war, or war of the three Henri, is doubly fatal to the king: the chief of the Protestants, Henri de Bourbon, and the chief of the members of a league Henri de Guise, whose Henri II also wishes the defeat, are all the two winners, one of the royal army with Coutras, the other of the German Protestants with Auneau (1587).
Henri III, who fears to be détrôné by the members of a league, prohibited with their chief the entry of Paris, but Henri de Guise comes to even face it in the Louvre, and populates it of Paris, in the day of the Barricades, fact causes common with the league.
