      Catherine de Medici - Queen Consort of France - (1519-1589) Granddaughter of Lorenzo de Medici. Married the second son of Francis I, later King Henry II of France, in 1533. She allied herself with the Catholic party during the Wars of Religion and took part in planning the massacre of Saint Bartholomew’s Day in 1572. Her dominant role in French politics came to naught in the end, when her Valois dynasty was replaced by the Bourbons.

    Louis XVI (1754-1793; reigned 1774-1791) was a slow, well-meaning, but stubborn man. Like his grandfather Louis XV, he showed genuine concern for his subjects. He lacked a strong will and was the pawn of special interests. He paid for his weakness at the guillotine. He would have been an excellent constitutional monarch, had he been able to bring the Bourbons through the first two years of the Revolution.

    Henry Tudor (1547-1509) was a leading Lancastrian contender for the throne of England became King Henry VII. His is the father of Henry VIII and the grandfather of Elizabeth I.
