PICT9306ac French King Henri III Riding His Horse to or from Italy
I was very happy indeed to meet him for the first time by this large painting; This king used to stop in Ancy-le-Franc castle during his trips to or from Italy and this large painting is above the chimney of the main room; He has been decapited with an axe because he was gay by the fanatic munk Jacques Clément who will be punished in the same manner; I am also a Jacques Clément and a gay, funny destiny no? And here totally amazed in front of MY King! We were only four persons with a pleasant and erudite young guide (also on survey that we did not take pictures inside the castle; When I revealed my name and my surname, I got immediately a special permission to photography the king because of this complete homonymy; On my side, I should never have killed this great Mecene, a King who brought in France the best Renaissance Artists from Italy including Michaelangelo!!!
