    • EMM

      Catherine de' Medici, 1556 possibly by Agnolo Bronzino, as Queen of France. "Her mouth is too large and her eyes too prominent and colourless for beauty", wrote a Venetian envoy as Catherine approached forty, "but a very distinguished-looking woman, with a shapely figure, a beautiful skin and exquisitely shaped hands".

      Catherine de' Medici. Queen Consort of King Henry II of France, became regent for her sons King Francis II and Charles IX and remained a powerful force during the reign of her 3rd son Henry III. The reign of her sons was a time filled with religious and political revolt and although considered ruthless, she was also 1 of the mst powerful women of the 16th century.
