Re: Diane was no Saint

Diane and Henri lived in the 16th century, which was much different from today. Mistresses were the norm rather than the exception. In fact, Diane's husband was the grandson of the King by his mistress. Nevertheless, Diane was a devout Catholic, and she felt the conflict between her beliefs and her lifestyle very keenly.
