At age 16, Marot became a page to Nicolas de Neufville, and at age 21 Valet de Chambre to Marguerite de Valois. He later fought at Pavia, where he was wounded and taken prisoner with Francis I. From 1537-9 he translated about 30 psalms, which were published in 1542. He traveled widely, sometimes fleeing persecution, and stayed at various times in Savoy, Geneva, and Turin.
