This conclusion marks the end of L’Estoile’s life of record-keeping with an account of his response to the assassination of Henri IV on 14 May 1610. A year before his own death, L’Estoile amassed pieces for a separate collection on the regicide, mixing oral news with manuscript sources and carefully researched printed publications, just as he had done during the decades of the civil wars. Finally, this concluding chapter demonstrates how editions of L’Estoile’s diaries published after his death entrenched his reputation as an observer of political rather than religious conflict.
