Mary Queen of Scots, Catherine de’ Medici & Elisabeth de Valois

Not Just the Tudors


Mary Queen of Scots, Catherine de’ Medici & Elisabeth de Valois

Three powerful Renaissance queens all lived together at the French court for many years. They were bound together through blood and marriage, alliance and friendship — bonds that were tested when they were forced to scatter to different kingdoms. 

In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Professor Suzannah Lipscomb talks to Leah Redmond Chang — author of Young Queens: The gripping, intertwined story of Catherine de’ Medici, Elisabeth de Valois and Mary, Queen of Scots — to find out more about these three women who lived their lives at the mercy of the state.

This episode was produced by Rob Weinberg.
