Early lifeEdit

Prince Francis and his father King Henry always had a bit of a distinct relationship with each other. Knowing full well, his half brother Sebastian was always his father's favourite, put a dark cloud on Francis. Though he was his mother, Catherine de' Medici, favourite child, Francis always wanted a closer relationship to his father.

As Francis got old, he stopped trying to get close to his dad, and they would often disagree a things. Thought this was the case between himself and his father Sebastian and Francis always had a great relationship with each other.

Season OneEdit



Prince Francis: She had skinny legs, a missing front tooth, and opinions.
King Henry: I'm sure the adult tooth has come in and the opinions you can ignore. Is that right, Catherine? [1]

Prince Francis: She's not just an alliance. She's a girl. [16]

King Henry: I'm intrigued by how much you care for a girl you claim you don't want to marry. [16]

King Henry: She's here doing her job and her job is waiting for me to decide when you should marry her. [16]

Prince Francis: I think we both know my mother and Diane have a way of making life very difficult when they wish. Even for a king.[17]

King Henry: As King I've learned when to be very clear about when to state my terms. [16]

King Henry: Well that’s what Kings do. We make promises to everybody. And whatever works for the realm we keep. Otherwise, it never happened. Lesson for today. [17]

King Henry: Win or lose, you will answer for it. That's what kings do. [17]
