Queen Catherine de Medici


Italian-French royalty, the daughter of Lorenzo, Duke of Urbino and Madeleine de la Tour. She married Henri, duc d'Orleans on 10/28/1533 and became Queen of France when Henri took the throne in 1547; ten kids. Born into a powerful family, she never questioned her right to be hedonistic and cruel.

At Henri's death, he was succeeded by 15-year-old Francis II in 1559; he died a year later. Charles IX, then ten, took the throne till 1574 when the immoral weakling Henri III took the throne at age 23, 1574. Catherine, the mother of three kings, held power through her sons for whom, some accounts say, she had "an abnormal relationship and affection."

She died of pneumonia 1/05/1589, Blois, France.
