Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Anglo-French war of 1627-1629 was part of the Thirty Years' War. It mainly involved actions at sea.The centre of the conflict surrounded the Siege of La Rochelle, in which the English crown supported the French Huguenots in their fight against the French royal forces of Louis XIII of France in 1627-1628. La Rochelle had become the stronghold of the French Huguenots, under its own governance. It was the centre of Huguenot seapower, and the strongest centre of resistance against the central government.The conflict followed the failure of the Anglo-French alliance of 1624, in which England had tried to find an ally in France against the power of the Habsburg. French politics evolved otherwise however as Cardinal Richelieu came to power in 1624. In 1625, Richelieu used English warships to vanquish the Huguenots at the Siege of Saint-Martin-de-R (1625), triggering outrage in England.In 1626, France actually concluded a secret peace with Spain, and disputes arose around Henrietta Maria's household.
