Cardinal George d'Amboise
Birth: 1460
Death: Feb. 25, 1510

Religious Leader. He was a Catholic Cardinal, Archbishop of Rouen, an advisor of King Louis XII, and Lieutenant (the kings vice) in the Normandy. He was mainly responsible for the successful annulment of the marriage between Louis XII and his first wife Jeanne de Valois. His brother Louis d'Amboise, bishop of Albi and Philippe de Luxembourg, bishop of Le Mans were the judges in the divorce trial. For his part in the negotiations with the pope he was named Cardinal in 1489. After the death of Alexander VI he was one of the favorites to become the next pope, because he had the support of the French king. He gave up in the election, for the right to continue his assignment as papal envoy in France and the cardinal title for his nephew. Pius III was elected but died only 4 weeks after the election. In the second conclave of 1503 George's rival for the papacy, Giulio della Rovere, was elected as Julius II and George was named papal envoy in France for lifetime. (bio by: Lutetia)
