As with many young women of the time, she was a pawn on the chessboard of European peacemaking, where marriages helped not only strengthen alliances, but allowed monarchies to oversee larger pieces of the European pie. Wary of this union, de Medici offers much resistance, but when the Pope is your suitor, there is little objection to be made. Heading to France, de Medici arrives where Henry and King Francis await her, only to discover that she is involved in a love triangle not of her own making.
Shalar The title is a total misnomer. This is my favorite book! I may, after a time, return to this series to see how de Medici fares in the second and third novels, though find myself in need of literary courage for that plunge. More by Eleanor Hibbert See more.

Henry, as a youth was enamored by a women 20 years older than him, Diane de Poitiers, who after he became king was his lover and controlled everything he did. As she approached the sprawling mansion towering above the cliffs of Cornwall, plaldy odd chill of apprehension overcame her.

I frequently wanted to shout at Catherine; her weakness, her constant ruddy whinging made me want to throw the book at the wall. However, she has come to realise that no one will protect her other than herself. Men and women were considered equals, for the most part, not like the English courts I have read so much about. Mary werpiente related to Diane of Poitiers and her uncles the Guises and they ruled Frances 2nd.
Two years ago I embarked on a serious read of historical fiction and non-fiction relating to the rise to power of the Tudor line in England.
