Soubise Benjamin

Soubise, BENJAMIN DE ROHAN, DUC DE, was born about 1589, and began a soldier's career under Prince Maurice of Orange in the Netherlands. In 1621 he, with his brother, took the command of the forces of the Huguenots against Louis XIII., but, after some successes, was compelled to take refuge in England. In 625 he resumed operations by a brilliant cutting out of the French fleet at Blayet, and he had charge of the defence of La Rochelle and the abortive expedition against the Ile de Rhe. On the failure of his hopes he again withdrew to England, where he died in 1641.
