"j'ai mon siège en la chambre de la Reine": Louise de Coligny at the French Court (1594–1620)

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The letters of Louise de Coligny, Princess of Orange, offer significant insights into how she negotiated her position at the court of Henry IV. A relative and friend of the King, she returned to the court as a widowed foreign princess ten years after the assassination of her husband William "the Silent." I have written elsewhere about her skillful use of letters to exert influence on behalf of family members and in support of her Huguenot faith. In this paper I will concentrate on Louise's accounts of her activities at court as they relate to her political goals and to her own status. Her letters touch on women's and family networks, rivalry and reputation, material culture and court entertainments, and take us to formal events, as well as to private meetings with the King and into the chambers of the queen, Marie de Médicis.
