Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jean de Coligny-Saligny, (Saligny, December 25, 1617 - April 16, 1686, was a French noble and army commander, best known for his part in the victory in the Battle of Saint Gotthard (1664). He was the son of Gaspard II de Coligny-Saligny and Jacqueline de Montmorin Saint-H rem, and thus a member of the well-known House of Coligny. He first followed Louis, Prince of Cond (1621-1686) in his revolt against the King, but they had a dispute so serious, that Coligny reconciled himself with the court and became Cond 's greatest enemy. As lieutenant-general, he was sent to Hungary at the head of a corps of 6000 men, to help the Emperor stop an invasion by the Turks. Coligny played a crucial role in the Battle of Saint Gotthard (1664), in which the Turks were decisively defeated. This battle was exceptional for the fact that French and Austrians, for once, fought on the same side.show more
