Germain St, En Laye
Germain St., En Laye, a place near Paris, noted for a treaty of peace concluded between the king of France and the Huguenots, August 8, 1570, in which it was provided that the Protestants should thereafter be unmolested on account of their religion. This treaty was only made to be broken, as the massacre of St. Bartholomew, only two years later (August 24, 1572), terribly demonstrated.
