Anne de Pisseleu
Diane de Poitiers
Diane and Catherine DeMedici
| Francois I became King in 1515. He was first married to Claude in 1514, and had seven children. In 1530, he wed his second wife, Eleanor of Spain. During 1533, he is undergoing an extensive tour of his kingdom. In late May and in June of 1533, his travels took him to the village of Lyon. He is traveling with his family, including his eldest son, the Dauphin Francois II, whom is the heir apparent to the throne. He is also accompanied by his son, Henry II; and his betrothed, Catherine De Medici. Catherine De Medici came to live in the house of Francois I in 1533. The mistress of the king, Anne de Pisseleu, the Duchess d'Etampes (Miss Manners) and Diane De Poitiers, the tutor and mistress of Henry II, also accompany the court. There is animosity between Diane and Anne due to Anne being given the title of Duchess d'Etampes. |
