Abstract First paragraph: On 6 September 1638 Cardinal Richelieu received a messenger from the king informing him of the birth of the future Louis XIV. Richelieu, then with the army at Saint Quentin, immediately proceeded to the local church, accompanied by a train of noblemen, officers, and bureaucrats. There they heard mass, the Te deum and Domine salvum fac regem were sung, and afterwards the cardinal gave his benediction to the assembled congregation, artillery firing all the while to mark the royal birth. Leading this thanksgiving mass was one Thomas Chambers, the son of an Aberdeen merchant and almoner to Cardinal Richelieu.
