Lymond picspam!

Here are some pictures of people from Lymond's era, in The Game of Kings and Queen's Play
(No spoilers.)

Portraits of significant characters

Mary de Guise, mother of Queen Mary of Scotland


Queen Mary (about age 16) with Francois II, dauphin of France
   

Young Edward VI, son of Henry VIII, short time king of England and proposed husband for Mary


Henri II, King of France


Catherine de Medici, Queen Consort of France


Diane de Poitiers (Duchess of Valentinois), Henri's mistress


François Duc de Guise , brother of Mary de Guise


Anne de Montmorency, Constable of France


Louis de Bourbon, Prince of Condé


His brother Jean de Bourbon, Sieur d'Enghien




I love their little pointed frill collars - not yet the crazy ruffs of the Elizabethan period, but just enough to open up like a small flower at the neck.  Especially the two portraits of young Queen Mary where you can see her neck. 

And that's enough for now.
