Love in a Time of War: Correspondence of the French Court in the Last Days of the Italian Wars : A CMEMS/PMRG Public Lecture Other events...
In the last campaigns of the Italian Wars, a conflict that had divided European states for more than fifty years, four key political protagonists in France exchanged letters. French campaigns against Habsburg forces in the north had separated the king, Henri II, from his queen, Catherine de’ Medici, his mistress, Diane de Poitiers, Duchess of Valentinois, and his chief military advisor, the constable Anne de Montmorency. In doing so, four individuals whose political fates were tightly interwoven in orientation around their monarch took to letters to express their hopes, desires and fears at war.

NB: This lecture follows the Perth Medieval and Renaissance Group Annual General Meeting (to which all are welcome), which begins at 6pm. The start time may vary slightly depending on the length of the meeting.
