I think it's because he thought the king was not doing enough to convert the French Protestants (Huguenots) into Catholics. The Huguenots vs. the Catholics were a big, exciting rivalry in post-Reformation France and would go off and on killing each other. St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre is the big example. Wikipedia's entry says something about France invading Netherlands led Ravaillac to suspect a French attack on the Pope, but I don't know anything about that.
