On 30 AugustMacron resigned from the government ahead of the presidential election which he eventually won after a run-off against National Front candidate, Marine Le Pen. Despite passing references to more profound reasons, Greengrass leaves the impression that the wars were responsible for the economic crisis and that peace brought a return to prosperity.

      His military strategy was conceived with equal ability. As a minister, he pushed forward business-friendly reforms that helped the French economy. Scholarly debates regarding this period abound: the causes of the religious wars, the events behind the Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre, the so-called crisis of the aristocracy, the nature of the popular revolts of the s, the objectives of Henri's foreign policy, and the genesis of royal absolutism. More than metres long and thirty-five metres wide, this huge addition was built along the bank of the Seine River. Especially useful is his detailed discussion of the settlement with the Huguenots which breaks quite new ground.
