Capilupi, Camillus

, a native of Mantua, who died in 1548, made himself famous by a work entitled “The Stratagems of Charles IX. against the Huguenots,” which he published in Italian at Rome, 1572, 4to, and a French translation was printed 1574. He describes the massacre of St. Bartholomew, and relates some very remarkable particulars respecting the motives and consequences of that outrage, which very naturally gave offence to the French court. 2
