I pace the floors of my chamber.
Although I am pleased of the upcoming marriage of my daughter to the King of Scotland, I still have reservations.
First of all, my daughter and I have never been separated by so great a distance. I hope that Margaret , the Queen Mother, will show my child the love and compassion that she has known all her life.
Second, I do not trust that Henry VIII and his whore will be as kind.
How well I remember when the Boleyn girls were at my court.
Yes, I knew of Mary and Francis's affair.
I've always known of ALL his affairs.
I didn't worry so much about Mary because she was ,at heart, a simple girl who only thought of pleasure. She didn't spread her legs to my husband because she wanted to hurt me or usurp me.
She didn't flaunt it.
And through every affair Francis had, I knew that he loved me and he would have never placed another above me.

But Anne?
Oh, there is a difference between those sisters.
I remember well how Anne flirted with all the males in my court. Whether a nobleman or a stable hand, she flirted .
Promising them untold pleasure with her dark eyes.
She would smile at the King, licking her lips like a she wolf, so certain that he would move Heaven and  Earth just for the chance to share her bed.
Then, she would look at me with a knowing smile as though to say "I am the only person stopping YOUR husband from pursuing me."

She cared little if it caused pain to the wives. I know she never shared her bed with those men.
Oh, no>Not Anne.
She knew that her virginity would fetch a high price.
When I finally told Francis that she and her sister needed to return to their family, he did so.
Without a word, he sent them away like the low ranked women they were.

I remember well how Mary begged my pardon and then thanked me for never being cruel to her.
Like I said, a simple creature.
But Anne looked at me with those cold eyes >Oh, how she had begged to stay in France. That she felt more French than English.
That I was more of a mother to her than her own.
I can admit it : I felt a strange satisfaction in knowing that I was the one person who saw thru her facade.
Then, when she was sent back to that cold land of England, I was certain that her father would marry her off to that boor from Ireland and she would be far away.

But they say when Henry saw her, spoke with her, danced with her, it lit a fire in his heart and in his loins.
She promised him everything.....for the Crown.
And Henry, fool that he is, set aside a good woman.

"A divorce," I thought.
Made Anne a peer of the Realm.
A peer!
She , who comes from common stock, a peer.
Then, he wanted a divorce.
Lied about Katherine and Arthur being a true man and wife.
Forsook the Church.
All for that black-haired bitch.

Now, what will happen when a man wants to marry his mistress?
Are good wives to be cast aside?

And would she , in order to get revenge on me, entice James to one day set aside my daughter?

Oh,no. That will not happen.
That is why I sent my trusted servant, Rosette , to Scotland.
Pretty as a rose and twice as thorny, she will be  my eyes and ears at that court until I arrive there.
She will ingrate herself with the English staff when Henry arrives and she will tell me everything that I should know.

I walk to my desk and pick up a card from the deck laying there.
The Queen of Hearts.
The rumor is that Anne The Great Whore was the inspiration for the this queen.
I place the card the flame of my candle and watch it as it slowly burns.
As the fire gets closer to my fingers, I dropped the card in a small plate and smile as I watch the edges curl until, finally her hated face is burnt.

As Katherine left the room a young Messenger approached her with a letter.
"My lady a letter from your father requesting you accompany him and Queen Anne to the marriage in Scotland

I turn and smile at my son, the card now curled and blackened.
"It's nothing, my son. Just a card that reminded me of something unpleasant.."
I take his arm while he walks me to the window and I lean in , slightly closer, as though to whisper conspiratorially.
" I see that you are taken with young Katherine, my son. I know that a young man, especially a King, can be swept away by a pretty face."
We stop at the window and Henry looks at me.
"What is your meaning, Mother?," he asks.

" My meaning is that Katherine Tudor is not some servant girl that you can tumble and send on her way. She is the daughter of a King. And you must treat her as such. "
I look out of the window, seeing the beautiful gardens below.
" Katherine's father is no friend of France. YOU are France and therefore, he is no friend of yours. He is a vain and arrogant man. He will use any weakness you have to his advantage."

I smile gently.
"Yes, I do think it prudent to have eyes and ears at the court of Scotland. I do not think that Katherine would betray you. No, but her father will try to interrogate her for answers and she may, innocently, give him those answers to him.
As for Rosette, I have anticipated your idea of a well-placed spy. She left on one of the ships this morning.  She will be there under the guise of overseeing to our chambers and whatnot but she will be there mainly to make certain nothing undue should happen."

For a moment, I look at my son.
So strong and handsome, willing to do what he must to keep his people and his country safe.
Even Charlemagne himself would be proud of such a King.
I was suddenly struck by the urge to gently stroke a curl of his hair away from his eye : Henry always had the most beautiful eyes.

I pull myself back to the conversation.
" My son, you are a great King and perhaps more importantly, a good man. When your father died, who was I?
A lonely, crippled widow. Our enemies circled around us like a pack of hyenas, ready to take us down and seize your crown for their own. Yet," my eyes grew wet," You arose from the ashes like a phoenix and protected your siblings, your mother, and your people. You are everything your father hoped you would grow to be. I could die on this very spot and be able to rest knowing my life was well spent."

Henry took my hand and raised it to his lips. Then he raised his eyes to mine and said ," Maman"

"My Lion," I whisper the nickname I had given him at birth.

"Let us prepare , Your Majesty, " I say brightly. "Let us show Henry and his Great Whore all the splendor and glory that is France!"

"You are right mother.
"Thank you for sending Rosette to Scotland to spy for us do please keep me informed of any information she has and if there is a threat in Scotland to me.
"Father taught me many things about being king but it was you more than anyone else mother that made me the kind loving king that i am and i thank you.

"Let us prepare indeed we will show England the true beauty and glory of France and we will outshine them. I do hope you will accompany me mother to Scotland for the marriage of my sister.
