FRANCIS FREDERICK ANTHONY (Duke of Saxe-Cob)
(1) Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld
VICTORIA MARY LOUISA.
FRANCIS I (King of France)(1) was born
on 12 Sep 1494 in Cognac, France. Francis I (of France) (1494-1547), king of
France (1515-47), remembered for his rivalry with the Habsburg Holy Roman emperor
Charles V, for his patronage of arts and letters, and for his governmental reforms.
Born at Cognac on September 12, 1494, Francis represented the Angoulême
branch of the Valois dynasty, succeeding Louis XII, the last of the Orleanist
branch, in 1515. His mother, Louise of Savoy (1476-1531), and his elder sister,
Margaret of Navarre, influenced his upbringing and remained close to him during
his reign. His first wife was Louis XII's daughter Claude (1499-1524).
The Valois-Habsburg Wars
In 1515 Francis personally won a spectacular victory over the Swiss at Marignano,
which enabled him to seize the Italian duchy of Milan. In 1519 he was a candidate
for the throne of the Holy Roman Empire, but the imperial electors chose Charles
of Habsburg instead. He then embarked on a war against Charles in Italy, but
was defeated and captured at Pavia in 1525. Imprisoned in Spain, he was ransomed
and returned to France in 1527. After another round of fighting, the two monarchs
made peace in 1529, and Francis married the emperor's sister, Eleanor.
Further inconclusive wars were fought against the Habsburgs in 1536-38 and 1542-44.
In this period the Catholic Francis did not hesitate to ally himself with German
Protestant princes and even with the Muslim Turks.
Religious and Financial Policies
Under his sister's influence Francis was sympathetic to Protestantism, especially
in its humanist form, when it appeared in France in the 1520s. In the 1530s,
however, he abandoned his earlier tolerance and became a persecutor of the French
Protestants. The king had concluded a concordat with the papacy at Bologna in
1516, thereby gaining greater control of the French Catholic church.
The cost of war obliged Francis to undertake extensive reforms. He floated government
bonds, punished royal fiscal agents who misappropriated funds, and twice reorganized
the treasury. He began openly to sell judicial and financial offices, creating
a new class of ennobled magistrates, which remained an important element in French
governmental and social structures until the French Revolution. The traditional
nobility served in his armies and flocked to court to secure the patronage of
the king or his favorites among the magnates. In this way factions arose, and
when the king died at Rambouillet on March 31, 1547, his reign had lost much
of its glamour.
Patronage of Art and Learning
Francis adopted the pose of a chivalric king, the first gentleman of his kingdom,
although his autocratic statecraft was informed by a shrewd realism. His patronage
of the arts was intended to augment the splendor of his court. He brought Leonardo
da Vinci and other great Italian artists to France to design and ornament his
châteaux. He employed the scholar Guillaume Budé in creating a royal
library and in founding professorships of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew, which formed
the Nucleus of the later Collège de France.

Francis II (of France) (1544-60), king of France (1559-60), born in Fontainebleau,
the eldest son of Henry II. In 1558 Francis married Mary, queen of Scots. Francis
was a mental and physical weakling and was dominated by François, duke of
Guise, and Cardinal Charles of Lorraine, the uncles of his wife. These two men,
who in effect were the rulers during Francis's brief reign, tried to repress
the growing political power of the Protestants in France. His death ended the
ascendancy of the Guises at court.

Frederick II (Holy Roman Empire) (1194-1250), Holy Roman emperor (1215-50) and
as Frederick I, king of Sicily (1198-1212).
Born in Lesi, Italy, on December 26, 1194, Frederick was the son of Henry VI
and grandson of Frederick I, Holy Roman emperor. He was made German king in 1196
and on the death of his father two years later became king of Sicily. When his
mother, Constance of Sicily (1146-98), acting as regent, died several months
later, the four-year-old prince was placed under the guardianship of Pope Innocent
III, the new regent of Sicily. Emperor Otto IV was deposed in 1211, and the German
princes selected Frederick to replace him. A contest for the imperial throne
ensued, because Otto was unwilling to relinquish the crown. Supported by the
papacy, to which he promised many concessions, and aided by the French, Frederick
was eventually secure in his title. He was crowned king of Germany at Aix-la-Chapelle
(now Aachen, Germany) in 1215 and Holy Roman emperor at Rome in 1220.
On his coronation Frederick made a number of elaborate promises to the church,
including a vow that he would go on a Crusade. He postponed the Crusade, however,
because of an outbreak of anarchy in Sicily and because of the resistance of
the Lombard cities, which in 1226 renewed the Lombard League, originally formed
against his grandfather, Frederick I. The following year Frederick annulled the
Treaty of Constance and put the Lombard cities under the ban of the empire. Threatened
several times with excommunication if he did not fulfill his coronation pledge,
Frederick determined to sail for Jerusalem in 1227. An epidemic forced him to
return three days after his departure, whereupon Pope Gregory IX declared him
excommunicated. In 1228 Frederick led the Fifth Crusade to the Holy Land, where
he took Jerusalem and concluded a 10-year truce with the sultan of Egypt. Having
married Yolande (1212-28?), the young daughter of the titular king of Jerusalem,
John of Brienne, and having assumed his title upon her death, Frederick was crowned
king of Jerusalem in that city in 1229.
He returned to Europe and spent many of his remaining years attempting to bring
the Lombards under subjection. During intermittent struggles with the papacy
he was excommunicated twice again, by Pope Gregory IX in 1239 and in 1245 by
Pope Innocent IV. His participation in costly wars in Italy caused him to neglect
the welfare of his German subjects. Frederick managed to establish peace, prosperity,
and order in Sicily, however, promulgating there in 1231 a comprehensive code
of laws, described as the best issued by any Western ruler since the reign of
Charlemagne. Frederick also made worthy contributions to learning in Italy. Because
he was a man of culture, he gathered scholars and men of letters at his Sicilian
court, which Dante called the birthplace of Italian poetry. The University of
Naples was founded by Frederick in 1224. For about a century after his death,
on December 13, 1250, the belief persisted that Frederick was still alive. According
to one famous legend, Frederick resides in a cave in the Kyffhäuser Mountains,
in the region of Thuringia, awaiting the summons of the German people to return
and restore peace in the empire. The legend was later interpreted to refer to
