Three Queens


Terror of the Faithful
"Narcisse can force me to do anything, to sign anything. I have lost control of my country!"
King Francis


The Royal Wild Child Returns
Young, reckless and provocative Princess Claude (Rose Williams) makes asurprise visit home, torturing her already haunted mother, Catherine. Francis is pressured by Narcisse to act against his conscience or risk his throne and his wife. Mary finds a new ally in Condé. Francis confides in Bash and hatches a plot that involves an uncertain Lola. Kenna mistakes Claude for a newfound friend, while Greer returns earlier than expected from her wedding tour.


Sebastian: And Mary?
King Francis: She can never know. She must be able to deny on oath before God that she knew anything. It's the only way to keep her safe.

Princess Claude: I remember you too. Now close your mouth.

Queen Catherine: You already smell of Whiskey!

Princess Claude: Married, and a baby! Or should I not mention those in the same sentence?

King Francis: Narcisse can force me to do anything, to sign anything. I have lost control of my country!

Josephine: How do I go back to my husband now?
Louis Condé: Discreetly.

Queen Mary: Unfortunate my husband isn’t giving me what I want. So I’ve come to ask you instead.

Sebastian: Why are you giving Claude gifts?
Lady Lola: Because she's a princess, and your sister. I think we can be friends.

Lady Kenna: This castle used to be fun.
Sebastian: Well on behalf of France, I'd like to apologize for the plague, famine, and religious violence.

Queen Catherine: I don’t need this. Not today.

Princess Claude: How did Bash and Kenna get together?
King Francis: It's a very romantic story actuarially. Father threatened to kill them both if they didn’t marry.

Narcisse: You asked me what I liked about baths. I suppose it's the vulnerability, the sense of comfort one feels covered, embraced, when in fact one is quite exposed. Why are you here?

King Francis: A compromised king is not a king at all.

Lady Lola: Do not seek to take before I give!

Queen Mary: Oh spare me your lies and excuses! You're not the man that I fell in love with and you're not the King I want to rule beside. You are a coward!
King Francis: Mary, everything that I have done...
Queen Mary: Enough, enough! I gave you a chance, I waited for the man I fell in love with to return, but that man is dead and I am finished waiting for him!
King Francis: If that is what you truly believe then perhaps you should return to Scotland. Leave me. Leave France.
