The Serpent Queen’s Plot

The Serpent Queen reimagines Catherine de’ Medici’s reign. The series is based on Frieda’s biography of the ruler. The series will also take artistic liberties. Here’s Catherine’s rise to power. Catherine was orphaned as a baby, according to Britannica. Her uncle, the Pope, planned her 14th wedding. Catherine married Henry II in 1547. Despite Henry’s mistress, Catherine bore him children. Catherine’s firstborn son Francis II inherited the crown after Henry’s death. Catherine tried to gain power during the French Religious Wars. Calvinist Protestants, known as Huguenots, pushed for reform of the Catholic Church, endangering other political forces. Catherine de’ Medici and her son battled to maintain their monarchy control. As the monarchy passed to Charles IX and Henry, she utilized her status as queen consort to promote supporters, issue edicts, and arrange marriages. The Serpent Queen veers from historical facts to explore Catherine de’ Medici’s rumors. She was accused of witchcraft, assassinations, and the 1572 St. Bartholomew’s Massacre.

On July 28, 2022, The Serpent Queen’s official trailer (below) was made available on the Starz YouTube channel. The first words Catherine de’ Medici speaks, which also serves as the audience’s initial introduction to her character, are “If you don’t give your adversaries a lesson, they’ll never learn.” Viewers are given a condensed timeline of Catherine’s rise to power in the trailer. She breaks the fourth wall by talking directly to the audience and camera during the recount of her early years. She describes how, despite being a marriage of convenience arranged by the pope, she fell in love with Prince Henry. However, her joy was fleeting since she soon learned that her husband had fallen in love with someone else.
