Portrait in the style of a sixteenth century copperplate print. This depicts the historic meeting of King Henry VIII of England and King Francis I of France at the "Field of Cloth of Gold" in 1520. The kings are accompanied by their queens, Catherine of Aragon and Claude de France.
The Field of Cloth of Gold (French: Le Camp du Drap d'Or) took place from June 7-24, 1520, between Henry VIII of England and Francis I of France. It took place just outside of Calais. French diplomat Guillaume du Bellay wrote, in reference to the magnificence of the courtiers at the Field of Cloth of Gold, "Their expenses were so great that some bore their mills, their forests and their meadows upon their shoulders"

Wow! You're the first person I've met who idolized Queen Claude! I'm doubly glad you stumbled upon this illustration, then. A little bit of trivia for you: She is pregnant in this image.

Mhm! like one of my friends who used to watch after me told me all about this one french queen and never said a name, and only like, sometime last year I learned it was Claude De France, so I became obsessed with her, she was like a storybook queen to me ^^; and Oh I noticed that! I actual really liked that, all the pictures I see are just done of dolls or other things, and that she's pregnant here was something I hadn't seen before in an illustration of her :aww:
