The French historian Michel Baudier was born in Languedoc around 1590 and died in 1645. Although it is uncertain whether he was officially the ‘king’s historiographer’ (a title he alludes to in some of his works), what is known is that he was an antiquarian, a numismatist and a tireless writer, prompted by a passion for history.
