  • 6. Education:
    Catherine de Medici had an unparalleled education making her one of the most intelligent woman of the renaissance.  Catherine attended convent schools in Rome and Florence and was studying to become a nun.  She entered the convent at age 5. She was well educated and studied art, music, architecture, Greek, Latin, and math.  Though she was planning to be a nun, Catherine was removed from the convent at age 14.  Catherine would not have made such a good queen if it were not for her wonderful education.
  • 7. Quote About Religion

  • 10. Professional life:
         
         Catherine de Medici was a very intelligent woman, but also a very good leader.  She was concerned about many things such as wars and religion, but one of her main concerns was keeping the French monarchy in power.  In the end she was one of the people who helped save the French monarchy.  To do this she married off one of her daughters to the leader of a strong country. Catherine helped her sons rule until they were of a noble age, but even after that she gave them advice and had a strong influence.  Catherine and her country fought in many battles such as two civil wars and The Massacre of St. Bartholomew's Day.  THe first civil war started in 1562, and Catherine fell in 1563.  The second civil war started in 1567, and ended in 1568. The Massacre of St. Bartholomew's Day started in Paris in 1572.  It ended later that year.  Though it was her sons who were in power, Catherine was a great and powerful leader. 
  • 11. Quote About Helping Her Son Rule
    “Since it has pleased God to deprive me of my elder son, I mean to submit to the Divine will and to assist and serve the King, my second son, in the feeble measure of my experience.”
