The youngest daughter of Henry IV of France and Marie de Médicis, Henrietta Maria married Charles I in 1625. She gave the King loyal and loving support, but her Catholicism alienated many of her English subjects. She contributed much practical assistance during the Civil War by personally bringing munitions from France and pawning her jewellery to raise funds.
