Women’s Studies Speaker Series: “The Royal Love Triangle of Henri II, Catherine d’Medici and Diane de Poitiers”
Henri II ruled France at the height of the Renaissance, but the woman who ruled him was not his wife. Instead, his mistress, Diane de Poitiers, wielded political and social influence. The king’s queen, Catherine d’ Medici, was a political outsider who came into her own only after her husband’s death. This unconventional relationship offered some surprising benefits to both women. Professor Kathleen Wellman teaches history at Southern Methodist University. Free and open to the public.
