      Son of Charles of Bourbon, duke of Vendôme, he married (1548) Jeanne d'Albret, daughter of Henry II, king of Navarre; as sole heir, she brought her husband the title of king of Navarre. Anthony was involved with his brother, Louis I de Bourbon, prince de Condé, in the Huguenot conspiracy of Amboise, but, nevertheless, he survived to be later named lieutenant general of the French armies (1560), having turned Roman Catholic. He commanded the army that besieged Rouen and there received a mortal wound.
