Description
Set against the backdrop of Renaissance France, this true story of love, intrigue, and betrayal recounts the lifelong devotion of King Henri II for his mistress Diane de Poitiers, a beautiful aristocrat 19 years his elder. Henri's wife was Catherine de' Medici, an unattractive but wealthy heiress who brought half of Italy to France as her dowry. And though Catherine loved Henri completely, the king never wavered in his affection for the beautiful Diane. Taking as her motto "hate and wait," Catherine lived for the day Diane would die. Fate, however, had a different plan. Princess Michael of Kent, herself a descendant of both Catherine and Diane, imbues this seldom-told story with an insider's grasp of royal life.
