Maximilien de Béthune, Duke of Sully (1560-1641) was a French Minister and staunch Huguenot who acted as the right-hand man to Henry IV of France and assisted in the rule of France. He also greatly contributed to the rehabilitation of France after the Wars of Religion (1562-98), during which he enlisted in the Protestant Army and wrote a plan of a Christian Union of Protestant Europe.
