The Abbot of Amboise was the right-hand man of the Cardinal of Lorraine, the religious leader of the Catholics in France.

He was a physical double of the First Doctor, and Steven believed him at first to be the Doctor in disguise.

The Abbot was strongly anti-Huguenot and a member of the conspiracy to assassinate Admiral Gaspard de Coligny in August 1572. When the plan failed, Marshal Gaspard de Saux-Tavannes blamed the Abbot and had him executed.

The Abbot's death was blamed on the Huguenots, a religious minority living in Paris at the time. (TV: The Massacre)
