Henri I de Bourbon, prince de Condé

Henri de Bourbon-Condé (Henry I, Prince of Condé; December 29, 1552 – March 5, 1588) was a French Prince du Sang and Huguenot general like his more prominent father, Louis I, Prince of Condé.

Henri was the eldest son of Louis of Bourbon-Condé and Eléanor de Roucy de Roye. Of the eight children in his family, he and his brother François, Prince of Conti were the only ones to have issue. He had a younger half-brother, Charles, Count of Soissons, from his father's second marriage. His first cousin became King Henry IV of France.

He married twice, first to his cousin, Marie of Cleves. Her mother was his father's sister. Marie was a great beauty, and supposedly King Henry III of France had plans to break up their marriage in order to marry her himself, but she died of complications from childbirth before he could do so. With Marie, Henri had one child:

  • Catherine (1574–1595), Marquise d'Isles
