This Article is part of the Good King Henry Timeline.

After POD

The Edict of Nantes stands firm that French Protestants are only allowed to worship in the 150 towns mentioned by it. Huguenots are not allowed to travel to the New World as in OTL. They are less willing to because of their King's Protestant upbringing and have no reason to travel to the New World illegally because so many of them held professional jobs in France. 

Louis XIV never repeals the Edict of Nantes in this timeline (nor is he crowned King) so most Huguenots stay in France and gain acceptance there.  

However, this leads to several figures in the OTL USA to never be born such as Paul Revere, James Monroe, and Gouverneur Morris.
