The Duc de Guise's arrival in Paris in May 1588 provoked the king's hasty departure. When the king tried to convene the States General and was opposed by the third estate, he suspected Henri de Guise's influence. He also believed that le Balafré was acting in collusion with Charles-Emmanuel of Savoy, who chose that moment to invade the last French territory in Italy. The ambassador René de Lucinge realized how fragile the alliance between de Guise and the king was. He observed with interest the chain of events that would lead to the king having his rival assassinated. Lucinge, conscious of the weaknesses of the Ligue, as well as of its potential for success, is a precious witness to one of the most troubled periods in French history.
