Chrestien de Valois was born outside of Paris, France in 1571.

Due to the political climate in Paris at the time he was raised by relatives of Henri Navarre in Navarre, France.

During this time Chrestien also began studying the Bolognese system of swordplay.

In 1584 he joined Henri Navarre's staff at the beginning of the War of Three Henries.

In 1589 Chrestien was made a Reiter Officer in service to King Henri IV and continued to serve in the French Army until 1610, eventually receiving both a Grant of Arms (1607) and the rank of Colonel (1608).
