I Am A Rock

~Livin' the Lemon Lyman Life~ About me: I'm a 20-something college student and I'm crazy about classic films, classical music, The West Wing, British TV shows, and history (I could list more things but I think that covers the basics) ;-)

2/9 - Catherine de Medici, Queen Consort of France

"I ask you, what could a woman do, left by the death of her husband with five little children on her arms, and two families of France who were thinking of grasping the crown—our own [the Bourbons] and the Guises? Was she not compelled to play strange parts to deceive first one and then the other, in order to guard, as she did, her sons, who successively reigned through the wise conduct of that shrewd woman? I am surprised that she never did worse."

~Henry IV of France
