"La Reine Margot, Louvre and Loire" France Things to Do Tip by Buckz

France Things to Do: 1,479 reviews and 1,983 photos

La Reine Margot is a film about one of French History's more colourful characters, Margeurite de Navarre. Her father, 3 brothers and husband were all kings of France. The royal residence was the Louvre, and the Chateaux of the Loire Valley were their playthings.
Scandal, Intrigue, accidents, assassination, Murder (?), Massacre, Civil Divide. The House of Valois excelled in all of the above- If there had been tabloid newspapers in their day, they would have filled them.
Read The travelogue on Catherine de Medici for some background to era .

Address: France
Directions: Chateaux d'Amboise, Chenonceau, Chaumont. Musée de Louvre.
Also found in the History of France from the Massacre of St Bartholemew's Day to the arrival of the Bourbons.
