King Francis' Coronation took place in Viennese, France on 21 September 1559.


The coronation took place on 21 September 1559. The event was to celebrate the crowning of the new King of France, after the passing of the late, King Henry. His son, Francis II was crowed King, and his wife, Mary, Queen of Scots was crown Queen of France. Francis was given full reign of his kingdom as he was of age.

Before the celebration took place, there were no less than three days of huge celebrations that took place throughout the Kingdom. The, almost week long celebrations were all arranged by the Queen Mother, Catherine. This included, dancer, juggilers, court jesters, animals, acrobatics, physic and multiple balls to conclude each night.
