I was wrong. What I asked of you, the backward step. You must know. I want the sameFrancis
world as you do, the better one, and the only way to field it is together. We do greater things when we act as one, when we trust each other as equals. This is not a coronation for a King. It is for a King and Queen.
You have a delicate peace to maintain. That is a King's work. And I have a mess to clean up and that is, if you ask your nobles, a woman's work. But, this time, since I got you into this, I don't mind doing it.Mary
You lie to your guests and then you threaten them with weapons? We will not be treated this way!Herr Shuller
Mary, this is not about my vanity, this is about my legitimacy! I am a new King trying to fillFrancis
the shoes of a man those people feared. I don't need their fear, but I need their respect. How can I
ask them for it if I can't even get it from you?
Narcisse: An advisor of my choice or regrettably there is no deal.
Catherine: I shall get my grain elsewhere.
Narcisse: You didn't come here because your heart bleeds for your starving countrymen. What are you hiding?
Catherine: Perhaps I'm hiding a bleeding heart.

Don't pretend this is about money. You have all the money you need. You want power.Catherine
You want revenge. But how could I possibly help you? I'm irrelevant.
Narcisse: It's must be hard. Once a Queen, now the Queen Mother. Decorative, like an expensive
vase, yet a great deal more relevant.
Catherine: I'm not the only one. There's a new day coming, and you are on the wrong side.
Mary: How dare he? Calls his men lazy while they starve and they grieve. Take his land and be done with it!
Francis: And in doing that I anger every French nobleman two days before they gather here to put the crown on my head. Mother was right about one thing. Narcisse wants revenge for his son's death and withholding grain is how he's getting it.
Kenna: It's not fair! Where's our new chateau? You're the King's Deputy! I love Lola like a sister but the idea that an unnamed baby has been granted vast holdings. Since when is there any land
Bash: There isn't. Not within two days ride of the job you begged me to take at the castle.
Kenna: How could I. Do you know what a title like would have meant to me? Baron Sebastian
instead of Bastard Sebastian?
Kenna: In other words, we cannot begrudge Lola and her child any of the gifts they may receive if it makes like easier for them than it was for you and your mother.
Bash: In those words exactly.

Mary: Are all powerful men so insecure?
Francis: A few. Many. Most.
- Permalink: A few. Many. Most.
Mary: What good does it do to pretend to be strong it it bankrupts us?
Catherine: Truly, Francis, I don't know why she's even in this conversation. Didn't you promise the
nobles you'd muzzle her?
