The story of the homesick Italian girl who became the most feared
woman in sixteenth-century France.. Sullen-eyed and broken-hearted,
fourteen-year-old Catherine de' Medici arrives in Marseilles to
marry Henry of Orleans, second son of the King of France. On the
promise of a dowry fit for a king, Catherine has left her true love
in Italy, forced into trading her future for a stake in the French
crown. Amid the glittering fetes and banquets of the most immoral
court in sixteenth-century Europe, the reluctant bride becomes a
passionate but unwanted wife. Humiliated and unloved, Catherine
spies on Henry and his lover, the infamous Diane de Poitiers. And,
tortured by what she sees, Catherine becomes dangerously occupied
by a ruthless ambition destined to make her the most despised woman
in France: the dream that one day the French crown will be worn be
a Medici heir...
