The ageing Catherine de' Medici has arranged the marriage of her beautiful Catholic daughter Margot to the uncouth Huguenot King Henry of Navarre Margot still desperately in love with Henry de Guise refuses to utter her vows But even Catherine is unable to anticipate the carnage that this unholy union is to I always think that read about history is fascinating It always makes me wonder how is possible to humans searching for power and wealth do whatever they want not caring if their acts will bring suffering for people And history is almost all the time about that One wanting power than another one thinking that hisher believes are true and the other not It's so crazy and so sad And i read about St Bartholomew's Day massacre  i think that it was an abominable act Catherine de' Medici didn't want to lose her power as ueen Regent on throne and as Philip of Spain was constantly uestioning her faith she decides to use Charles' mental disorder and bring the killing on the huguenots The cruelty that happened during days on France was  totally full of terror and butchery Catherine's decision makes Charles become even crazy and sick He became the mad King She use all her power to keep the throne so Henry can become a King She plots against the lifes of innocents she doesn't care for Margot she doesn't care for no one just Henry Seriously i think Catherine was the Evil on earth A mother that instigate the cruelty to scare her sick son to make him become even mad a mother that wanted the sons dead so she could place her favorite on throne and a mother that would beat a daughter till she loose consciousness that's impossible to don't see her as an evil woman Of course besides that there're so many assassinating by her command But at the end she did so many bad deeds to put her ALL Henry on throne and it was a huge disappointment Henry was a fop useless person As his mother Henry was also hated by french people All Henry cared was to keep his extravagances while the french people were starving After reading this trilogy i believe the House of Valois were the wickedest family who ever ruled on France Catherine never was loved and because of that her only wish was to rule to have power She was indeed a Madame Serpent the ueen Jezebel That was another excellent reading
