Anne de Pisseleu d'Heilly She was a daughter of Adrien de Pisseleu, "seigneur" d'Heilly, a nobleman of Picardy, who, with the rise of his daughter at court, was made "seigneur" of Meudon, Master of waters and forests of Île de France, of Champagne and of Brie.
Anne de Pisseleu d'Heilly She came to court before 1522 and was one of the maids-of-honour of Louise of Savoy, Duchess of Angoulême, the mother of Francis I. Francis made Anne his mistress, probably upon his return from his captivity at Madrid (1526), and soon gave up his long-term mistress, Françoise de Foix, for her.
Anne de Pisseleu d'Heilly Anne was described as being sprightly, pretty, witty and cultured, "the most beautiful among the learned and the most learned among the beautiful"; she succeeded in keeping the favour of the king until his death in 1547. The liaison received some official recognition; when the new Queen of France, Eleanor of Austria, entered Paris in 1530, the King and Anne occupied the same window. In 1534, Francis gave her in marriage to Jean IV de Brosse, whom he created Duke of Étampes.
Anne de Pisseleu d'Heilly The influence of the Duchess of Étampes, especially in the last years of the reign, was considerable. She upheld Admiral Philippe de Chabot against the Constable de Montmorency, who was supported by her rival Diane de Poitiers, the dauphin's mistress. She was a friend to new ideas, tolerant of Protestants, whose beliefs she openly embraced after the King's death. She cooperated with the King's sister, Marguerite de Navarre.
Anne de Pisseleu d'Heilly She used her influence to elevate and enrich her family, her uncle, Antoine Sanguin (d. 1559), being made Bishop of Orléans in 1533 and a cardinal in 1539; her three brothers were made bishops and two sisters were abbesses, the other sisters making great marriages. The accusations made against her of having allowed herself to be won over by Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, and of playing the traitor in 1544 and in the lead-up to the Treaty of Crépy (September 1545) rest on no serious proof.
Anne de Pisseleu d'Heilly Following Francis's death, Diane de Poitiers, mistress of Henry II of France, had the Duchess dismissed from the court, took over the majority of her possessions and made her a prisoner in the custody of her husband. Though her court favorites were humiliated in every way upon her dismissal, she was permitted to die in obscurity much later, probably in the reign of Henry III.

Antoine Sanguin In 1544 Cardinal Sanguin's niece's brother, Charles Pisseleu, who had been Administrator of the diocese of Mende since 1538, was made Bishop of Condom, thanks to the patronage of King Francis' sister, Marguerite of Navarre. The appointment was approved by Pope Paul III on 15 June 1545. In 1546 Bishop Charles' half-brother, François Pisseleu, a nephew of the Cardinal, was named Bishop of Amiens (He resigned in 1552).
Diane de Poitiers When Francis I was still alive, Diane had to compete at the court with Anne de Pisseleu, the king's favourite. She had the latter exiled and imprisoned by her husband on his lands upon Francis I's death in 1547.
