Historic figurines by Les Etains du Graal - Richelieu
Born in 1585 in Paris, he died in 1642.
Although he was destined for a military career, his family expected him to join holy orders as a monk in order to retain the Bishop's Palace ( l'évêché de Luçon) within the family as it brought a significant income with it.
