François Créquy, chevalier de (fräNswä´ shəvälyā´ də krākē´), c.1629–87, marshal of France. Having fought in the Thirty Years War and on the government side in the Fronde, he conducted brilliant campaigns in the War of Devolution (1667–68) and conquered Lorraine in 1670. He refused (1672) to serve under Marshal Turenne in the third Dutch War (1672–78) and was exiled but soon submitted. In 1675, he was captured after his defeat at Konzer Brücke near Trier. Released shortly after, he achieved military renown in Alsace. In 1684, Créquy occupied Luxembourg.
