a bit of useless trivia: ercole II d'este, the husband of renee de france was the son of lucrezia borgia, the infamous :)

also, their daughter anna d'este was married to the duke of guise and her royal blood was also part of the plan to put the guise's on the throne during the three henris war...

Having a similar discussion over in the Tudor thread, I would like to start here a new one on the intimacy of this rare couple...

Did they ever consummate their marriage?? I really think they did, as Louis had been forced by Louis XI to sleep with her...

In what way was this lady deformed? Was it skin lesions/scarring from smallpox or something else?

She was lame, very small and hunchbacked. She was certainly those things but these deformities have been enhanced or lessened by her admirors or detractors all through history, so it's difficult to tell to what extent she was deformed...

Thats why I asked what her deformities were ;) No reason why they physically couldn't consummate the marriage.

Great thread!!!

Jeanne is also known as "Jeanne la Boiteuse" she was born in 1464 and she was engaged to Louis when he was 23 month and she was 6 days, the infant parents signed and engagement contract on may 19 1464 at the castle of Blois. her first five yeras she  lived at the castle of Amboise, but her malfornity became to apparent and she was sent to the castle of Liniere in the region of Berry. It is said that she smallpox had done a lot of harm to her face, and she was quite ugly due to that fact. And so it seems that she was aldo sterile, since she did not grew up with her young husband. She was basecally raised by Fran├žois de Beaujeu et Anne de Culan and she received a quite good education! Louis and Jeanne were married 12 years after the engagement, but Louis was he was king asked for an annulment. Afte rthe anulment Louis made her duchess of Berry, she lived in Bourges and had a convent founded there. She became a nun and died february 4 1505. She was made a saint in 1950.

It just goes to show, that if you had the right connections and pushed the right buttons, a royal divorce was relatively easy to achieve. Of course Jeanne "went quietly", unlike Catherine of Aragon!

Louis got Brittany (and sadly only daughters). Jeanne got sainthood.

Somehow the whole business seems a bit tacky!  :P
