Henri, Seigneur d'Aramitz was a Gascon abbé, and black musketeer of the Maison du Roi in 17th century France. In addition, he was the nephew of the Comte de Troisville, captain of the Musketeers of the Guard.
Aramitz was born of noble ancestry to Charles d'Aramitz and Catherine d'Espaloungue de Rague in Béarn, France. His father lived in Paris as maréchal-des-logis for the Musketeers of the Guard, but upon the death of Henri's grandfather, Abbé Pierre d'Aramitz, Charles returned to Béarn and took over his father's abbacy. His Grandfather was indeed a Huguenot captain, though there is no proof of Henri d'Aramitz being himself a Protestant.
Henri d'Aramitz's uncle, the Comte de Troisville, called him to Paris based on his reputation for swordsmanship.
