I had travelled from where I was in Bavaria and had now arrived in France where I was to marry the French King Francois I. As my carriage approached I stepped out and was accompanied by my sister Isabella of Austria who had come for the coronation. I waited to be greeted by the French court.

The French Court had been informed of the arrival of the princess Eleanor from Spain and as my father got ready to meet her I went down to the courtyard where her royal highness had just arrived and I approached and bowed.

"Welcome Princess Eleanor to France my father has sent me to greet you as he readies himself for your arrival. I am Prince Henri of France and the Dauphin and I trust that your journey was a safe and not challenging one here? I asked as she approached.

I stepped out of the carriage with my sister and I looked at the fine prince who had come to meet me.

"My journey here was not challenging thank you your highness and I am please to meet you and I hope I do not disappoint your father my lord? This lady here next to me is my sister Isabella of Austria and she will be staying a while. How long will it be before i meet the King my lord?

I compose myself before replying to the princess.

"I can assure you now your highness that my father will not be dissappointed when he sees you for your are a great beauty and please forgive I do not mean to offend you if this does I am just complimenting you. The King is ready to receive you soon your Highness as he is just speaking with some ambassadors please allow me to show you and your ladies into the palace and to your chambers." I say to her as i nodded towards the princess's sister.
