The French Huguenot Exodus | Hanover House - Episode 1


The beginning is about the house’s original owner, Paul de St. Julien’s family, and their French Huguenot origins. They moved to Charleston, S.C. to escape religious and political persecution, when King Louis XIV overturned the Edict of Nantes. Tim Drake, a Ravenel family descendant, talks about who the French Huguenots were, and how the Huguenot movement first got started in France.
