Abstract: On the 10th July 1559, Henry II died of posttraumatic meningo-encephalitis due to a perforating trauma through his left eye. His third son, the last Valois king, Henry III succumbed on 5th of August 1589, four days after having been daggered in the abdomen. The sister's husband of the latter, king Henry IV, the first Bourbon king was deadly wounded by Ravaillac's knife in the left hemithorax on the 14th may 1610. If we dwell on the thought of how these 3 unfortunate French kings died, we can ask the question if round the year 1600 they could have a chance of survival if all the possible therapy methods existing at that time had been applied.
