Energetic and outrageous, but a friend to the end.

Marguerite de Valois (1553-1615) known as Queen Margot, was the youngest daughter of Henry II and Catherine de Medici. She was the first wife of Henry IV. She was an eccentric personality of considerable gifts and talent. She maintained a center of intellectual activity in Paris later in life. She and Henry shared little in common and their marriage was annulled in 1699. They remained on good terms the rest of their lives.
