The series starts as a story that Medici narrates to a maid. Scenes of both the past and present are shown. Catherine de Medici was born to a higher-class family, but due to her parents contracting venereal diseases, both of them passed away when she was young. She grew up in a catholic orphanage as a poor servant. But as she was of a noble family, she was married off to a son of Francis I

Medici, although plain in appearance, had a very smart brain. Her luck wasn’t always good either, and she’d end up in bad situations all the time. Her determination and resilience, accompanied by her intelligence, could be held responsible for the power she gained as time went on. Her husband Henri II, who later became King Henri II, was not a brave man. It was Catherine’s guidance that made him participate in a battle and win it. Henri also had an older lover and a mistress Filippa, with whom he had a daughter.
