Re: Favourite Queen consort of France

I don't know, who's the most badass bitch?

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Catherine de' Medici. Patron of the arts but politically inept and ruthless as fuck. A true Medici 'till the end.

Well, the marriage was annulled,* so maybe you're right and I'm wrong.




*after like 12 years and two daughters--so you can argue it was a bogus annulment too.

Re: Favourite Queen consort of France

I read all the Princess Diaries when I was a young gay and Eleanor was my favorite, Marie Antoinette would be second.

Re: Favourite Queen consort of France

I don't know most of them. I got to know only few because of my European exposure (Germany, France and Italy mainly). Also learned a wealth, big thanks to Musee du Louvre. I don't have any favorite, but I voted for Mary Tudor because she became the Queen of France.




OT: I'm a big admirer of Emilie du Chatelet‎ and Sophie Germain Many still don't know about them even today. Some didn't hear their names! One girl (in the US) answered in an interview, "Is she heiress of Chalet Chocolat empire?" Anyway, do you think we can see another Emilie or Sophie in the modern France or anywhere? I mean, you know 'currently' most people are after...

Nice to hear a familiar name. Have you read her recent biography? I heard she was the real author behind the treatise, not Voltaire

Re: Favourite Queen consort of France

Catherine by far. One of the most intriguing and interesting woman in French history.
Marie-Antoinette second, I've a soft spot for her.
