Catherine de Medici & Family, a Portrait Retrospective

As part of the C.W. Gortner event for HFBRT I have put together a portrait slideshow of Catherine de Medici and her family. Being an ascetic person myself and always referencing pictures of the people I am reading about I thought give you a glimpse of Catherine and the people in her life.




  1. This is wonderful - thanks for pulling this together, Amy! I really enjoyed the slideshow.

  2. Great job! I really like seeing the age progression! Overall, a pleasant looking family, weren't they?

  3. Nice idea and a good job. The more I look into her life and the events that took place during it, the more interested I become.

  4. It's wonderful to see them as they were in life; one of the advantages of the era was a new trend toward realism in art, with the individual taking center stage. And you found a few portraits I'd not seen! Great post, thank you!

  5. This is so cool! Thanks for putting all this together!

  6. Freaking cool I love the one of young Catherine, she was pretty. I hate to say this but Diane was pretty too but to hell with her, cougar.

  7. Wow, what a neat feature, Amy! Thanks for the visual :)

  8. Catherine was pretty when she was young but unfortunately, Diane de Portiers (excuse sp) was a hottie! Poor Catherine!
