The Battle of Saint-Denis was fought on November 10, 1567 between Catholics and Protestants during the French Wars of Religion in Saint-Denis near Paris, France.
Anne de Montmorency with 16,000 Royalists fell on Condé's 3,500 Huguenots. The Huguenots surprisingly held on for some hours before being driven off.
