You can't use your children as pawns in your schemes to gain power. You have no power because I've taken it all away.

Charles [to Catherine]

I am Scottish. This country is in my blood as I know it is yours.


There can only be one Queen, and I had to choose mine.

Lola [to Elizabeth]

Claude: Honestly, mother! How many people have you killed?
Catherine: Shhh!

  • Permalink: Shhh!

Catherine: Oh, dear lord. You have a history.
Claude: History is a strong word. It was more of a...dalliance.

I know I've made mistakes. I lied to you. I chose power time and again and I gained everything I wanted. I'm Lord Chancellor of France. But it's all meaningless without you. Come home to me, Lola.


Leith: Have you ever wanted something so much that the fear of not getting it makes you wonder if you ever should have wanted it at all? That's how I feel about you.
Claude: Something we both want so deeply warrants a bit of fear. I don't want to live without you and after this I won't have to. No one will ever keep us apart again.

Prince Magnus [to Lola]: You are hereby banned from Denmark for life.
Elizabeth: It's a fate worse than death, apparently.

Elizabeth, men in general like to win.


France, I think I shall never see you again.


Well, your taste in men always did leave something to be desired.

Narcisse [to Catherine]

My dearest Mary. If you are reading this, you are leaving France to reclaim your Scottish throne. I always knew this day would come and I wish I could be at your side as you set sail to take back what is yours. In the darkest of times you were my conscience. Your heart was my light, Mary, and it burned so very bright for France. No matter how far you go, that light will burn forever.


Reign Quotes

My dear, this was not an act of passion. It was treason.

Queen Catherine

Love is irrelevant to people like us.
