Jean Bertaut (1552–1611)

Bertaut, Jean (bãr-tō’). A French poet and prelate; born in Caen, 1552; died in 1611. He seems to have entered holy orders as a result of the favor he acquired at court through his love poems, which comprise stanzas, odes, and couplets, published as ‘Songs’ (?) (1602). He also composed “canticles” on ‘The Conversion of Henri IV.,’ as well as a funeral oration in eulogy of the same monarch.
