I rub my hands together to alleviate the bit of anxiety I feel. "I am sure of that mon ange... I admit It is good to see Marguerite again as it has been so long, I just wish the treaty was already signed vous ne pensez pas?"

I watch as wine is poured and parchments and quill holders are placed strategically upon the negotiating table and await Francis' presence.

I am ready to begin the negotiations whenever you are Your Majesty. I still have a hold of Katherine's hand as I take a goblet filled with sweet French wine that I am fond of. I look to Francois with a curious look, What if you and the King of England have bad blood towards each other again? What position do you think that I should take on the matter. I clear my throat, My Kingdom has been cut in half, literally, as the northern part is now in Spanish hands. I want reassurance that you will come to my aid if I do decide to side with you during a conflict with England for I fear that King Henry will want to invade my Kingdom as a result.

I look down and shuffle the parchments before me, collecting my thoughts before sitting back and resting my hand on my cheek. "Your Majesty... If I may say so, Le Roi Henri has his hands quite full with this matter with the pope... whether he remains with his current queen or with the lady Anne, he has made an enemy of the papacy, but more importantly, with Spain and l'empereur." I shift and lean forward.

"He has no will to make war with the entire continent-count on that!... In turn, the Spanish invaders who now occupy Northern Navarre also find themselves surrounded by France. The aggressors are now trapped. I tell you now, that if you sign this treaty, I shall deliver an ultimatum to l'empereur... leave Northern Navarre, or face the combined forces of a free Navarre to the South and France to the North!"

I lean in close to Francois, Don't forget that I am also married to his dear youngest sister and would assume that I will always side with him.  I lean back, glancing at the crowd gathered, breathing deeply.  I turn only my head to look at him once more, I will do what I feel is best for my Kingdom, at least what little is left of it.  France is much more mighty than England and our alliance and friendship in the sense of brotherhood shall make us a force to be reckoned with!

You do have a point though.  England is caught up in the nonsense of a Royal Divorce.  Personally, I believe that the Pope should not grant it.  I pray for God to set Henry straight!  I look through the papers along with Francois.  I am still learning the art of Kingship.  I was thrust into it so quickly that my head still spins.

I can see Francis wishing to be bold and diplomatic at once. He will learn this with experience... I must be careful and not overplay my hand and sound neither overly patronizing nor pessimistic.

"Oui, while I hold great affection for the Lady Anne as we became close the time she spent at my court, I believe mon frere makes a grave error... Rome and l'empereur are quite a formidable force to be up against at once!... his hands shall be too full to commence hostilities with you in the foreseeable future... l'empereur and his thirst for conquest is our true mutual enemy. Together we can defend against any aggression on his part, if this treaty is signed and sealed."

I take my seat and my face takes on a cold expression. Now was not the time for pageantry and show, it was the business of ruling that took precedent. I had been raised to understand that all Kings had an agenda and would require something from my husband's kingdom. "And what would your Majesty require for helping defend our Nation?"
Scanning the document in front of me, I look for anything that wouldn't be to our benefit...or to my taste. I remember my lesson from the sisters at Poissy; everything comes at a cost.

I raise my eyebrow and turn my head to La Reina Katherine, a slow smile spreads across my face. "Mais oui, is that not why we call it negotiation, votre Majesté?" I say and fold my hands, looking pointedly at Francis.

"A completely free Navarre under your strong rule votre Majesté, represents a bulwark... a buttress upon our South and Westen flank... if we sign un alliance pour la sécurité, it would mean that in the event of hostilities with l'empereur or any other foreign invader, that France may count on the co-operation of the Kingdom of Navarre to attack or defend from that region... this is most important to us as it would allow me to greatly decrease the troop strength on our Southern border to be used elsewhere." I turn back to La Reina Katherine with a more serious expression in my eyes and tone of voice.

"You see votre Majesté... what I seek is what you seek... trust."

I look to Katherine then back to Francois as his words sink in. Those are most agreeable terms indeed Your Majesty. My troops can defend and can be spread across France if needed. I take a drink of my wine when a thought suddenly crosses my mind. I propose another addendum to the Peace Treaty... I clear my throat, I propose that we also enter our children into a marriage to cement said alliance. I place my hand on Katherine's belly, My unborn child whether a boy or a girl to wed a child of yours?

I listen to the conversation carefully, and I decided to not take a tone out of my mouth, I looked very calmed at my husband then at Queen Katherine, I hoped that there will be clearance in this matter.

Knowing that my husband will make good decision, and take full responsibilities on his actions, my thought were at my niece Juana and her mother, what will happen with them if something goes wrong.

Then the matter of marrying our children made me a bit stressed, but I still didn't want to talk, I waited for François to make decisions.

I sit back and cast a glance at Claude, that I may glean her reaction in all of this, before turning back to his majesty Francis. Nodding my head and placing both palms down upon the table. "Votre Majesté... I am of the firm opinion that a marriage between our families shall create a bond between our two kingdoms that shall last generations... I endorse it whole-heartedly."

My head snaps in the direction of Francis and with widened eyes, I look at him.... Taking a quiet breath, I look down. Shutting my eyes for a moment....I attempt to remain calm. We were discussing the marriage of a child I was carrying it. I had heard of marrying children from the cot, but never the womb.
Forcing myself to smile graciously, I lift my head but feel uncomfortable sitting....Sighing and inclining my head, I breath slowly.

Then it is settled on the marriage but if we conquer lands, they should be evenly divided between us. Katherine's grip on my hand tightens and he face spells out that she must be in pain. I look at her, Do you need to go and lay down my love? I ask with concern, fearing that maybe our child is about to arrive.

Nodding, looking pale. I stand up slowly....I smile faintly at my hosts. "Your Majesties, must ask that you excuse me....I am not feeling at all well."

After seeing Queen Katherine leaving the room I look at the Kings "Your Majesties I am going to follow Queen Katherine, please proceed" I smile at them as I leave the room.
