The Price
"I’m Catherine de' Medici, Queen mother of France. Perhaps you've heard of me."
Queen Catherine


Mary And Francis Fight For His Legacy
When King Antoine unexpectedly returns to Court, Mary must help Francis hide his weakening condition long enough to secure his family’s future. With the Throne in jeopardy and time running out, they must turn to an unlikely ally in need of redemption



Prince Charles: I may be young, and inexperienced, but I promise I’ll give you an heir.

King Francis: You are the prettiest vampire that ever lived.

Queen Mary: I am just as strong and stubborn as Elizabeth. I will not live in fear of her.

Princess Claude: I expect you’ll be wearing that when we play cards tonight.

Queen Mary: Are you trying to blame a woman for a man’s choices?

Lord Narcisse: From now on, you're only allowed to dream about me.
Lady Lola: As you wish, Lord Narcisse.

Lord Narcisse: Will you marry me?
Lady Lola: To marry you, is to defy my king, risk Catherine's wrath, and the judgment of my friends. And yet, you make me feel stronger than I’ve ever felt before. I can't believe I’m saying this, but yes. Yes I’ll marry you...Someday we will. But for now, we must keep it a secret.
Lord Narcisse: For now.

Lord Narcisse: I have many children of my own you know. Some of them turn out quite well.

Lady Lola: As long as Francis has doubts, so will I.

Lady Lola: For so long I thought my life belonged to a king. Now I’ve realized, my life really belongs to me son.

Princess Claude: God I wish mother were here. She handles tragedy with ruthless clarity.

Princess Claude: Actually there is someone who shares mothers’ talents.
Lord Narcisse: I will not help you with this.
Princess Claude: Why not!

Lord Narcisse: She is actually dead in’t she?
Prince Charles: Her eyes rolled back in her head!

Prince Charles: You want me The Dauphin to get you a bucket of water?!

Queen Catherine: Greer had one of her girls watching him, but unfortunately the poor thing can’t read.

Queen Catherine: You must be Nicolas.
Nicolas: How’d you get in here?
Queen Catherine: I’m Catherine de' Medici, Queen mother of France. Perhaps you've heard of me.

Nicolas: And Elizabeth will never give up Navarre.
Queen Catherine: Yes she will. Because I have something to trade. My silence.

Queen Catherine: Withdraw your offer or I will burn Elizabeth’s name to the ground.

Queen Catherine: I don’t have much to live for these days, but I would still die for my children.

King Francis: A measure of a man is what he does when no one is looking.

King Antoine: Have you gone mad!?
King Francis: Don’t misjudge me. I am my father’s son.

Queen Catherine: She does have her moments doesn't she. I’ll look after her.

Queen Catherine: I’m sorry I wasn't the mother you wanted me to be. I did my best.
King Francis: I know. In your own way.

Queen Mary: Don Carlos. It was your spies who got that information to me wasn’t it.
Queen Catherine: Well, I knew you couldn’t leave France empty-handed.
