Her reign and the reign of her three sons were marked by Religious Wars between
the Catholics and the Protestants. Catherine tried to find a solution but she failed.
But without her it was uncertain that her sons remained their power.

She was one of the most powerful women in Europe in the 16th. century and has
done a lot for the arts in France.
