Protestant leader
   Born in Bugy, Philippe de Mornay, lord of Plessis-Marly, or Duplessis Mornay as he is known, was a supporter of Henri de Navarre (henry iv), to whom he became principal adviser and ambassador (1576). After that monarch's abjuration (1593), he retired to saumur, where he founded the first Protestant academy (1599). Author of Traité de l'eucharistie, which opened a debate with jacques du perron (Fontainebleau, 1600), he also left his Mémoires (4 volumes, posthumous.)
