Sample text:

“Why do this, Henry?!  You have the crown of France as soon as my father dies.”

“Do I have the crown in truth, Catherine?  The moment I go back to London your darling little brother Charles will declare himself king of France and all this will be for nothing!” scowled Henry.

“Perhaps that should tell you something, Henry.  This is a war you can fight – but never win.  All it can do is give popular support to Charles’ cause.  How can you not see that?”

“Do you wish to see your father?”

“What does that have to do with anything?”

“It is a question, now answer it plainly.  I have little time for your courtly games.”

Catherine eyed him, “I will not enter Paris unless you do.  Which is to say I do not expect to see it again.”

“Faithless creature, aren’t you?”

“Hardly.  I know where my home is – and who my allies are.  My mother taught me well.”

“Women!” exclaimed Henry with frustration.  “You all think you rule the world and all the men in it!”

“Pardonnez-moi, Henri roi d’Angleterre – but who started this war and who is fighting it?  Not one woman was consulted in this.  No, Henry of England – this is your war.”

Henry collapsed into a chair, “Must we fight again, Kate?”

“Must you war with France?”

Exhaustion filled Henry’s eyes “Old argument!”
