Although he was a man of kindness, compassion, and good humor, and was much loved by his people, he was the subject of many murder attempts (for example by Pierre Barrire and Jean Chtel). On 14 May 1610, King Henry IV was assassinated in Paris by a fanatically passionate Catholic, Franois Ravaillac, who stabbed the king to death while he rode in his coach. Henry was buried at the Saint Denis Basilica. Henry's widow, Marie de Mdicis, served as Regent to their 9-year-old son, Louis XIII, until 1617.
