10 November 1567 Battle at St-Denis: French govt army vs Huguenots.
"The Battle of Saint-Denis was fought on November 10, 1567 between Catholics and Protestants during the French Wars of Religion in Saint-Denis near Paris, France.
Anne de Montmorency with 16,000 Royalists fell on Condé's 3,500 Huguenots. The Huguenots surprisingly held on for some hours before being driven off.
The Protestants were defeated, but the Catholic commander Anne de Montmorency was mortally wounded. The Protestants fell back to the east to link up with German mercenaries." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Saint-Denis_(1567)
