The wedding between the Princess Marguerite de Valois and Henri King of Navarre was intended to be a celebration that would at last bring peace to the warring Catholics and Huguenots in France. Instead, it was a precursor for the infamous Massacre of Saint Bartholomew.By the time the bloodshed had abated, none was seen as guiltier of creating the horrors of that night than the Queen Mother - Catherine de Medici.Seventeen years later, as Catherine's life hangs in the balance, the mob threatens to drag her body through the streets.To them she is no longer Queen Mother, merely the second Jezebel in history to be thrown to the dogs.
