Catherine de Medici

Originally uploaded by marymompics

On Henry’s death in 1559, Catherine forced Diane to swap houses. Catherine then went about running the country as Regent for her son Francois II and imposing her mark on Chenonceau. One can almost feel the battle of wills between Catherine and Diane in every aspect of the house and grounds.
