Seroun and his wife receive a visit from Montsoreau in [Scene 8] in The Massacre at Paris. After Seroun’s wife (She is only heard and does not appear.) has called her husband, Montsoreau stabs Seroun, a Huguenot.

De furoribus Gallicis tells of the Huguenot preacher Masson de Rivers in Angers. A few days after the St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre in Paris, a man named Monsorel, who came from the capital, knocked on the preacher’s door. The latter’s wife opened the door and chatted amiably for a while with the visitor, whom she then led into the garden to her husband, where Monsorel shot him.1
