Considered an immigrant, common and plain, Catherine de Medici is married into the 16th century French court as an orphaned teenager expected to bring a fortune in dowry and produce many heirs, only to discover that her husband is in love with an older woman, her dowry is unpaid and she is unable to concieve. Yet, with her intelligence and determination, she manages to keep her marriage alive and masters the bloodsport of the monarchy better than anyone else, ruling France for 50 years.

I love a good historic story with some spicy characters and writing, and this fills that need.
The Serpent Queen has just enough irreverence to make what could have been a boring period story,  a lot more interesting, emphasizing Catherine de’ Medici’s cunning , over being prim and proper.

Re: The Serpent Queen [Drama, History]

checklist
1) we have "done" Catherine the Great ( The Great with elle Fanning)
2) Now its Catherine De Medici's turn
3) Next? Lucrezia Borgia?

I like it. I can watch pretty much anything in the genre but this is definitely toward the top end so far.
