Catherine de Medici: Five Portraits By Michael G. Paulson Peter Lang, Read preview Overview The Age of Catherine de Medici and Essays in Elizabethan History By J. E. Neale Jonathan Cape,   Catherine de Medici learned this at a very young age when she was brought over from her native Italy to marry the future king of France, Henry II. Disliked by the people as a suspicious foreigner and ignored by her husband in favor of his French mistress, Catherine had to use any means available to her to preserve her power as queen.

  Catherine de Medici was born on this day, 13th April, in I’ve posted about her before on this here blog but thought that today I’d share some of the family portraits from her beautiful Book of Hours, which was created in the early s and contains portraits of fifty eight members of her family. It’s now kept in the Louvre. Her mother in law, Claude de France surrounded by her. Schevill details the lives of many noted members of the Medici including brief yet useful descriptions of Catherine de' Medici's life. This book was useful for a general history of Catherine's life. Strage, Mark. Women of Power, the Life and Times of Catherine de' Medici. New .

Catherine de Medici's father-in-law, King Francis of France, was the perfect Renaissance knight, the movement's exemplar and its Gallic interpreter. An aesthete, diplomat par excellence, and contemporary of Machiavelli, Francis was the founder of modern France, whose sheer force of will and personality molded his kingdom into the first European. A Balanced Biography Firstly, the book is narrated absolutely brilliantly. The book is one of the best historical biographies I ever read, it offers a balanced assessment on Catherine de Medici life, not only her ruthless side but also her attempts at compromise. A portrait of a strong woman, of a survivor.
