Henry (Henri) de Nogaret de La Valette (died 1639) was the eldest son of Jean Louis de Nogaret de La Valette (1554–1642), first Duke of Épernon and Admiral of France, and his wife Marguerite de Foix (1567–1593), comtesse de Candale. From his mother Henri inherited the title of Comte de Candale, becoming the 7th of that line. Henri made a career of the military, serving under Richelieu, in the armies of Guienne, of Picardy and of Italy. He was created duc de Candale in 1621, but that title became extinct upon his death and his brother Bernard succeeded him as the 8th Comte de Candale.
