Catherine de Medici Debate

Catherine abandoned policy of moderation

Catherine, on 7 January 1569 in Saint Maur-les- Fosses talked to Alaya about the council meeting she had just had, she tells him that she is carrying the whole burden of government herself and that she is scandalised by council members who only want her to make peace. This shows that at this time Catherine no longer supported a policy of toleration, which could have helped result in further wars. This could suggest bad ruling on her part as she seems to want to ignore the advice of everyone else and seems to think she rules alone even though she has no real authority.
