Excerpt from Richelieu

The struggle ended at last in the defeat of both the extreme parties; and their defeat was due to their collision with that passionate desire for unity which has been the dominant force in French history from that day to this. The Huguenots, the prototypes of the later Girondins, aimed at establishing a system of local isola tion, which must have e?'aced France from among the great states of Europe. The success of the League would have subjected the Gallican Church to Rome, and would have made France a vassal and tool of the Spanish Haps burgs. The victory of Henry IV. And the middle party, which represented national interests and instincts, was secured by Henry's acceptance of Roman Catholicism, and by his grant of the Edict of Nantes to the Huguenots.
