Claude de Longwy de Givry

Claude de Longwy de Givry (1481–1561) was a French bishop and Cardinal, from an aristocratic background.

He became bishop of Mâcon, in 1510, as successor to his uncle Étienne de Longwy. He was subsequently bishop of Langres, bishop of Poitiers, bishop of Périgueux, and bishop of Amiens.

He was created cardinal in 1533, being known as the Cardinal de Givry (also later applied to his relative Anne d'Escars de Givry).

A patron of architecture, he also commissioned tapestries, on the subject of Mammes of Caesarea who is venerated in Langres.[1][2]
