Joan III of Navarre had a public conversion to Calvinism in 1560. She joined the Huguenot side. Was it necessary that she had a public conversion?

Yes.

For Jeanne it was not a private choice. She changed the religion of Navarre. The catholic priests and nuns were driven out. She commissioned an edition if the New Testament in their language for her people. She didn't simply convert, it was a religious declaration. So yes it had to be public.

She became a well known leader of the Hugenot cause before her death.

She converted on Christmas Day 1560

Ofcourse Jeanne would not have done so during the reign of her cousin ,Henri II of France ,she did so when his widow Catherine de Médicis was Regent trying to keep the realm from sliding into civil war.



Jeanne d'Albret was every bit as guilty as the Duke of Guise for the years of chaos and bloodshed and it brought her into to open conflict with Catherine de Médicis something which Jeanne dreaded.

As well as Sovereign of Navarre,Jeanne was also a member of the French Royal Family,her uncle was king François I er.

Here's a portrait of Jeanne d'Albret that is housed at the Musée Condé that dates from the mid 16th century.
