Notes Henri de la Tour d'Auvergne (1611-1675) was a French military leader. He earned his reputation as a military leader in the Thirty Years' War, especially with the capture of Turin (1640). His bold strategies won numerous victories against the imperial army in Germany (1672 – 75), but he was killed in action at Sasbach. He was buried with the kings of France at Saint-Denis and later moved to the Invalides by Napoleon, who esteemed Turenne as the greatest military leader in history.
