Her brother became King of France, as Francis I and the two siblings were responsible for the celebrated intellectual and cultural court and salons of their day in France. Marguerite is the ancestress of the Bourbon kings of France, being the mother of Jeanne d'Albret, whose son, Henry of Navarre, succeeded as Henry IV of France, the first Bourbon king. As an author and a patron of humanists and reformers, she was an outstanding figure of the French Renaissance. Samuel Putnam called her "The First Modern Woman"

Why make more shows about Elizabeth I or Anne Boleyn when all these powerful, intelligent, fascinating 16th-century women still need movies about them?

Francis I (1494–1547): Francis was part of the rivalry with the Renaissance kings of Western Europe, including Henry VIII of England and Charles I of Spain & (as Charles V) the Holy Roman Empire. Francis helped to usher in the French Renaissance as a major patron of the arts.

Francis I (French: François Ier) (12 September 1494 – 31 March 1547) was a Valois monarch who ruled as King of France from 1515 until his death. He was the son of Charles, Count of Angoulême and Louise of Savoy and succeeded his childless cousin Louis XII. A generous patron of the arts, he initiated the French Renaissance by attracting, in his Château de Chambord, many Italian artists, including Leonardo da Vinci

Francois I (English:Francis I), King of France ... By the time he ascended the throne in 1515, the Renaissance had arrived in France, and Francis became an enthusiastic patron of the arts. At the time of his accession, the royal palaces of France were ornamented with only a scattering of great paintings, and not a single sculpture, either ancient or modern. During Francis' reign, the magnificent art collection of the French kings, which can still be seen at the Louvre Palace, was begun.

Jean Clouet (1485 - 1541, French)

Portrait of Madeleine de Valois, daughter of François I of France and Queen Claude. Attributed to Jean Clouet, c. 1522. 16.8 x 13.3 cm, oil on panel transferred to canvas. Private Collection, Courtesy of The Weiss Gallery, London (The inscription ‘Charlotte de France’ was added in the seventeenth-century.) Madeleine (1520-1537) was François and Claude’s second daughter and fourth child. The portrait probably depicts Madeleine around the age of two. She was considered to be a sickly child and appears to have contracted tuberculosis at a young age. Owing to this, François was reluctant to marry her off, though in October 1536 James V of Scotland visited the French court looking for a French bride and selected her. The couple married at Notre Dame in January 1537; Madeleine’s wedding ring – a great table diamond – cost around 1100 crowns. Shortly after the wedding the couple progressed to Scotland, though Madeleine fell ill at Rouen, thus delaying the journey. By May they set out again for Scotland. However the celebrations in Scotland for the new queen were short-lived. Madeleine’s heath rapidly declined and she died in her husband’s arms on 7th July 1537. She was buried Holyrood Abbey. The portrait is currently on display at the Horace Walpole and Strawberry Hill exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum, 6 March - 4 July 2010.

Margaret of Anjou, wife of Henry VI and Queen of England at the start of the Wars of the Roses. Margaret of Anjou (French: Marguerite; 23 March 1430 – 25 August 1482) was the wife of King Henry VI of England. As such, she was Queen of England from 1445 to 1461 and again from 1470 to 1471. Born in the duchy of Lorraine into the House of Valois-Anjou, Margaret was the second eldest daughter of René of Anjou and Isabella, Duchess of Lorraine.

Another portrait of Margaret of Anjou, Queen of England, to King Henry VI (1455). Margaret was reputedly very beautiful, and this portrait would attest to this. An extraordinary woman who, in a foreign land, rallied support for her weak husband King Henry VI, and effectively led the Lancastrian war effort. Ultimately, she lost: her son killed in battle; her husband murdered and she herself banished to France by Henry's rival, Edward of York.

Quentin Massys, Portrait of a Woman, 1520

Portrait of a Woman oil on wood painting by Quentin Massys (Netherlands), 1520. Now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Scholarship has associated Massys’s painting style with several notable Flemish masters including van Eyck and Hans Memling, although the occasional influence of Dürer and even Leonardo can be detected in his works. However, recent technical studies have demonstrated an extraordinary level of innovation in his works. Massys experimented with particular pigments (such as kesselbraun or Van Dyke brown) in order to produce a particular color or effect in his paints. The complex structure of his works, even in the case of his tempera paintings, is further demonstrated by the intricate detail found throughout his brocaded patterns, jewels, and architectural designs. Signature characteristics of Massys’s technique include the use of a dry brush to create tonal transitions and the application of fabric to the surface of still-wet paint to create textured effects.

Portrait of Sultan Ahmet I (r. 1603–17), Ottoman period (ca. 1299–1923), early 17th century, Turkey. This painting is one of a series that seems originally to have been collected or perhaps even painted for one particular album. Only one of the portraits has an inscription identifying the ruler represented (Sultan Selim); the others, like this one, have a cartouche at the top of the miniature which perhaps was meant to contain an inscription. http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/works-of-art/44.30
