Chapter Summary

The history in France of Moriscos, particularly Aragonese and Andalusians, who were cast out of Spain unfolded in the short interval between 1610 and 1614. Most of them have left France, between 1610 and 1611. The geographic location of this minority group concentrated south of a line drawn from Bordeaux and its environs to Cannes. Morisco contacts with France in search of support for a military invasion of Spain had begun in 1587 and continued up to 1608. Sully, summarises in his memoirs the negotiations that took place between Moriscos and French Protestants before Henry's accession to the throne in 1589. Louis Cardaillac pushes the first contacts between Moriscos and French Protestants back to 1575, when they sought, allies for an invasion of Spain. He also alludes to conversions of Moriscos to Protestantism, citing a few trials from the archives of the Inquisition tribunal in Toledo.
