Ha,I never copped that,I would imagine it was typographical error and Anne of Lorraine died in 1576.

A very fascinating woman who was manipulated by her family particularly her two uncles if what I have read is correct.

Poor Claude was married off as a pawn to the House of Lorraine

Which 2 uncles do you refer to?

Those Guise brothers were really some of the most powerful men in France and from what I've read Catherine couldn't stand them

In particular the Cardinal of Lorraine was a constant thorn in her side!

I have read that Catherine de Medici was like an evil presence
dominating the French monarchy a malignant presence that eventually led to the French Revolution and the end of 1000 years of the French Monarchy while the British Monarchy went on and thrived............. even in the present day .

Of course there was the attack on the Knight Templars and the torture and murder of their leader by a former French King and that de Molay put a curse on the French Monarchy ......................

Eventually King Philip's Inquisitors succeeded in making Jacques de Molay confess to the charges.
On 18 March 1314, de Molay and de Charney, recanted their confessions, stating they were innocent of the charges and they were only guilty of betraying their Order by confessing under duress to something they had not done.
They were immediately found guilty of being relapsed heretics, for which the punishment was death.
This effectively silenced the other Templars. Philip continued to pressure and threaten the Pope to officially disband the Order, and things came to a dramatic end in 1314 with the public execution by burning of leader Jacques de Molay, and Geoffroi de Charney.

Much has been written on Catherine and most of it not very nice,if anything Catherine is one of the most maligned historical figures and history has not been too kind to her.

I think it is sad that when a woman does disgusting things like Catherine did they are excused, blamed on men not being nice to her or something else. If a woman does shady things hold her accountable just like the men.
