with Caroline Rayman

Catherine, who came in 1533 at an early age from Florence to marry the French prince Henry, suffered terribly at the French court. She was looked down on by everyone except her father-in-law King Francis I and throughout her marriage had to endure the fact that her husband loved someone else and indeed spent most of his time with her. However, as you will learn, Catherine triumphs in the end.

Caroline Rayman has worked in England, Italy and America conducting cultural tours for Patrons of American Arts Institutions visiting private collections and gardens throughout Great Britain and Europe
