Henri IV there worked out, if not signed into 1598 the terms of the edict of Nantes. In its turns were held Chalais, favourite of the king Louis XIII, the cardinal of Retz, the duchess of Berry. The great time is that of the duke of Brittany, François II. The way of life is royal. The court is sumptuous and the moral standards very free. An arm of the Loire was then bathing in the castle. The current building, started in 1466 with François II, is continued by his/her Anne daughter of Brittany. The duke of Mercoeur, during the league, adds defenses.
