Note

Elle a un rôle relativement effacé pendant la règne de François II puis elle est nommée Régente à l'avènement de Charles IX. Dans une situation très difficile d'intrigues politiques, elle sait montrer de grandes capacités.

Elle joue tout d'abord les Guise catholiques contre les Bourbons protestants. Puis elle pratique avec Michel de l'Hospital, son ministre, une politique de réconciliation (Edit de Tolérance, puis Paix d'Amboise). Elle conclut ensuite la Paix de Saint-Germain et marie sa fille Marguerite avec Henri de Navarre (futur Henri IV).

Elle s'inquiète vite de l'emprise de Coligny sur Charles IX et laisse faire les instigateurs de la Saint-Barthélémy.

Son influence décroîtra sous Henri III. (note rédigée par bsd concept pour le logiciel Heredis)

Note

De leur union naîtront dix enfants dont trois régneront. Catherine saura sauver la face devant la présence affichée et durable de la maîtresse d'Henri, Diane de Poitiers.
