"Let him act like a King. You won't marry her until I say."
Queen Catherine

Catherine and Francis have a very close relationship. Francis is her favourite son and she watches over him closely. Catherine would do anything for her son, including murder. Catherine made him, the man he is today.

Early HistroyEdit

Prince Francis was born, the heir to the French kingdom but was never close to his father, as he favoured his older half brother Sebastian. Catherine, perhaps to compensate for the lack of love he received from his father always tried to make sure Francis had the best of things, and freedom to grow into a strong and caring young man.

Season OneEdit

Catherine was the one to assure Francis, he did not have to marry the Scotish Queen until he was ready, ignoring her husbands demands. However Catherine was very excited for the two to get married. They were close in age, both attractive and she knew they already got along. As far as royal engagments go, Mary Stuart was an excellent choice in her eyes. [1]

Catherine - Pilot

However Catherine's views quickly changed when Nostradamus had a vision, claiming if they wed it would end in Francis' death soon after. So Catherine realized the easiest way to strip Mary of her right to wed her son was to prove her loss in virtue. She convinced a young scottish gentlman to give mary a possioned glass on whine. When she went to bed that night she would sleep like the dead. In that time Colin MacPhail would rape her, and soon after Catherine would call into question Mary's maidenhood, once it could no longer be proven the treaty between the countries would fall apart.[1]

However this did not go to plan and Mary hadn't drank the wine. Catherine then had to get rid of anyone that could link her to the crime and had Colin killed, twice.[2]

Thus began the 6 month long adventure between Mary and Catherine, over Francis.
