"I am who I am. I want what I want. And I take what I want. If that scares you, if it repels you, then you're with the wrong man."
Prince Henri to Nicole Touchet

Prince Henri is the youngest son of King Henry and Queen Catherine of France. He is now the Dauphin of France, eagerly waiting to claim the throne after his older brother Charles.

Must See Episodes[]


Prince Henri was a very shy child. He never said much and seemed to fall in line with his older brother Charles. However, as he grew older, he gained confidence. By the time he reappeared in Season Four, he seemed like a completely different person. Henri displayed more leadership, resolve, and cunning than Charles, now the king of France, and quickly won over allies, among which were Lord Narcisse.

Although he never officially stated it, Henri acted as if he were the ruler of France by intervening in French politics and treating the court as if it were his own, much to the dismay of Charles and Catherine. Charles attempted to assert his authority over his younger brother, but unsuccessfully so, as Henri knew he had the backing of Spain and the love of the king's favourite, Nicole.


Early Life[]

Henri was the last son born to Queen Catherine and her estranged husband King Henry. He was surprisingly named after his father as he was their last son together, though it is very common in Royal family to do this, it was to the Courts understanding, the couple is, or had been for a long time, drifting apart. The naming of little Henri may have been the Queen's last effort to get the attention from the king that she was looking for.
