"Original Watercolor - Anne Of Austria And The Duke Of Buckingham"
Original old watercolor showing Anne of Austria and the Duke of Buckingham in Amiens (Annotation in pencil on the back): Here are the details of "The Buckingham affair" In 1625, a matrimonial alliance was concluded between France and England. On May 11 Henriette-Marie of France, sister of Louis XIII, married by proxy the new king of England Charles I. The Duke of Buckingham, favorite of the late king, was responsible for escorting the princess. According to custom, the Court of France accompanies Henriette to the border. Anne of Austria is on the trip as well as the queen mother (Louis XIII stayed in Paris). It was during this trip that Buckingham made an urgent court to Anne. At the stage of Amiens on June 14, 1625, the Queen's friend the Duchess of Chevreuse arranged to isolate Anne and Buckingham from the rest of the Court. According to the Memoirs of Pierre de la Porte, valet of the queen, the duke is enterprising, Anne utters a cry. According to the Historiettes de Tallemant des Réaux, the duke "overturned the queen and scratched her thighs". The royal suite comes running as Buckingham disappears. Finally on June 22, 1625, the Duke of Buckingham embarked in Boulogne with the young wife of King Charles. The Amiens incident goes around the European Courts and fatally affects the self-esteem of Louis XIII, while the couple's marital relations are already strained. Buckingham is denied French soil. Later, La Rochefoucauld invents in his memories this story of ferrets offered to the duke, which will be taken up by Alexandre Dumas in Les Trois Mousquetaires. *** Original work in watercolor, very finely produced Dimensions 23 x 19.5 cm.
