François Clouet (1510 – 1572) was a painter of portraits and a miniaturist during the French Renaissance. Clouet was known for his precise and detailed works. "Elisabeth of Austria, Queen of France"
Mary Queen of Scots by François Clouet
She really was a beautiful little girl, even by 21st century standards. Her father-in-law, King Henri II called her "the most perfect child" and adored her. He loved to have long conversations with her, saying she was as delightful to talk to as an adult. (It must be said that Henri II loved all children, and was a particularly good father to his many children, even though they were not the healthiest or prettiest or brightest).
oh wanda! sorry I did not get this comment! how interesting. it is full of taking broad license with history-etc, but the CW network has a show REIGN about young teenage Mary at the French Court-it is fun-soapy-even but at least an effort!
