The night before King Louis XII died Louise was residing at Amboise and was awoken by a powerful storm and was filled with dread and wrote in her journal that she 'waited for the day to break' and with that came a messenger covered in mud from Paris to announce that 'The King is dead,long live the King' .
Before Louise went to Mass she wrote in her journal 'The First day of January I lost my husband and this the first day of January my son became King of France'.

Louise wasted no time and set out for Paris the following day and went to the Hôtel des Tournelles where she had the royal physicians examine Queen Mary to make sure she was not pregnant. Mary Tudor was in in accordance to the French custom La Reine Blanche in mourning for 6 weeks of solitude at L'Hôtel des Tournelles.

The newly divorced Josephine was created Duchess of Navarre by the Emperor a title which made no sense to me as Navarre was a kingdom.

The Imperial Divorce

The Navarre in question was the Chateau de Navarre in Normandy which was gifted to Josephine by Napoleon together with an implicit wish that she'd spend more time there and at Malmaison than in Paris.

Ah that makes more sense I though it was a snub to the Bourbons who were monarchs of both France and Navarre.

Marie de Brabant is one of the few French queen who were not buried at St Denis but was instead buried at the now destroyed Couvent des Cordeliers de Paris. The chapel was ransacked and desecrated in 1793 and nothing remains now.
