Catherine de Medici
I've just finished reading a superb biography of Catrherine de Medici (St Bartholomew's Day massacre and all that) by Leonie Frieda. Cathy died at the end. And now that I come to think of it, so do all of my Aussie Notables. Sounds a bit morbid, I suppose, but I try to dispose of them as painlessly as possible.
