He was present at the Battle of the Dunes, and participated in the Franco-Dutch war under Turenne. He was made Marshal of France in 1668. At the Battle of Cassel he and Marshal Luxembourg assisted Philippe I, Duke of Orléans to victory.
On 8 March 1653 he had married the beautiful, rich and influential Louise Antoinette de la Châtre, Comtesse de Nancay. The influence of the comtesse (she was Dame of the palace of the Queen) and his personal good relationship with Louvois were very important for his career.
