In 1557 he became a Protestant and commanded the Huguenots during the second and third Wars of Religion. In the infamous St. Bartholomew's massacre he was one of the first victims of Queen Catherine de' Medici, being murdered together with many Huguenots, which did irreparable damage to the Protestant cause in France.
