The Prince of the Blood


Acts of War
"You did this to us. To France. For all that you claim you are trying to protect us, I have lost all faith in you. And the man I thought you were."
Queen Mary


Rising Tensions Leads to Bloodshed
Tensions escalate between Mary and Francis when The Vatican inquisitors perform barbaric acts on anyone suspected of being a Protestant. After a brave proclamation, Lord Condé is abducted, resulting in a precarious situation with a surprising group of assailants. Catherine experiences an annoying setback when she plays matchmaker on behalf of a reluctant Claude (Rose Williams), while Narcisse offers a stranded Lola an innocent horse ride back to the castle, where a dark secret involving Francis is revealed.


Queen Catherine: Rise and shine Claude! The only people in bed past noon are drunks & recreates.

Princess Claude: I have no interest being married. Now, or ever. My brother is the king! I don't see why I have to become the property of any man.

Queen Catherine: Have the servants poor you a bath, you smell. Gamey.

King Francis: Do not threaten the Crown. And if what you say is true. We will find these explosive. Even if I have to bleed it out of you.

Lord Narcisse: Oh wait, what is that? I see in the distance? Is that someone coming to your aid...No. Sorry. Perhaps it's a very big wolf.
Lady Lola: You're the wolf.

Lady Lola: Are you suggesting we meet in secret? Like thieves. Or adulterers.
Lord Narcisse: Well fruit often taste sweeter when it's forbidden.

Princess Claude: I slept with her Fiancé. Just once!. On a dare.

Queen Catherine: I couldn't convince the Count of your chastity, but surely God can.

Queen Catherine: Oh the things I have done for you, how I have protected you. You think that I don't love you. You don't see! In my way I have mothered you more than any of my children.

Louis Condé: A minister much beloved by his flock. The people know nothing of the dire threat he has made. If the minister is killed, the people can use his death as justification for almost any bad act. They would create... Queen Mary: A martyr. Louis Condé: And his death would inflame even the most pacifist of Protestants.

Queen Mary: You did this to us. To France. For all that you claim you are trying to protect us, I have lost all faith in you. And the man I thought you were.
