Francis was born at Chateau de Sales in the Kingdom of Savoy near Geneva, Switzerland on August 21, 1567.
His father wanted him to enter a career in law and politics. He forged alliances with Pope Clement VIII and King Henry IV of France.

Francis studied theology and practiced mental prayers. He kept quiet about his devotion.
To please his father, he also studied fencing and riding.
