Catherine de Medici

Catherine de Medici is the queen mother of France. She was widowed when Henry Valois died in a jousting tournament, and like her namesake family, her best time is probably behind her. Her one dream is to look out for her three sons, but it is her indecisiveness, instead of the cavalier strength innate to house Valois, that characterize her oldest son. In her effort to navigate between House Guise and the protestant Princes, clumsily trying to play them against each other, she threw all of France confusion, losing all of House Valois’s authority in the process. Cursed to outlive all her children, she would lose her life right when the war she created came to an end.
