Épernon, Jean Louis de Nogaret, duc d'

Jean Louis de Nogaret Épernon, duc d' (zhäN lwē də nōgärā´ dük dāpĕrnôN´), 1554–1642, French nobleman. He distinguished himself during the civil wars at the beginning of the reign of Henry III, and became a favorite of the king. He served Henry III in his dealings with Henry of Navarre (later King Henry IV of France). He was made governor of Provence and admiral of France. After the assassination of Henry III, he tried to set up an independent government in Provence but was forced to submit to Henry IV in 1596. He was involved in the conspiracy that resulted in the assassination of Henry IV (1610), and was largely responsible for the acceptance of Marie de' Medici as regent. He was conspicuous in the government until 1618; in 1619 and 1620 he supported Marie against the duc de Luynes. He was governor of Guienne from 1622 until dismissed (1641) by Cardinal Richelieu.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
