Henriette d’Entragues

Ambitious, haughty and pretty, Henriette schemed her way into Henry IV’s bed. She knew how to manipulate Henry’s weaknesses and played a game of hot and cold until she had him in the palm of her hand.

Upon Henry’s assassination Henriette was exiled from court. She lived another 23 years and died unmourned and alone.

Note: While she was alive Henriette was referred to as a “malignant wasp”.

Note on Lenticular: The rocks represent the impossible situation Henriette put Henry in by making him sign a document promising to marry her. Her rich dress and impossible jewels symbolize her ostentatious greed.

Most peoples first contact with lenticulars is the “blinking eye” prize in a box of Cracker Jacks. All Bourbon lenticulars measure 8 inches by 10 inches. They are made to order and come in editions of 10. Framing is not included.
