Francis, Duke of Anjou

Francis, or better known as Anjou, is the youngest of the Valois brothers. Always afraid of being outdone, and correctly fearing that he would never inherit the throne, Anjou always strived to make an impact, whether it was good natured or not. He became a protestant, courted Elizabeth of England, and even organized the Malcontents, a group of young lords who openly opposed Anjou’s own brother, the King. Smart, handsome, and blessed with many friends, Anjou was quite unlike his two older brothers in that he emitted royal grace and dignity. Unfortunately, his passionate nature, mixing with his desire to outdo his brothers, caused him to make a huge mistake that destroyed the balance of France.
