|House of Bourbon|
The House of Bourbon was founded in 1268 by Robert, Count of Clermont, a son of Louis IX of France. Robert's son Louis became the first Duke of Bourbon in 1327. The house first appeared in the second season of Reign. Under the Salic law, they are recognized as Princes of the Blood, with the contingent right of succession to the French throne. At the time period of Reign, it was headed by Antoine de Bourbon, King of Navarre and Duke of Vendome; his brother Louis de Bourbon, Prince of Conde, was another leading prince.
Season Two Edit
In Sins of the Past, Queen Catherine and Francis reveal that there is much bad history between the House of Valois, and the House of Bourbon, because the Bourbons plotted to take the throne of France while Francis was a sickly child.
Season Three Edit
In Extreme Measures, When Antoine returns to French Court to bargain for the life of his brother Louis Condé; Mary and Francis say that the only way they will let Conde live is if the Bourbons give up their claim to the throne of France. Later Queen Catherine visits the English Ambassador, demanding that he withdraw the deal he made with the King of Navarre, because she knows Elizabeth likes having a friend in Navarre with a claim to the French throne, who could one day take over France, and she will never let that happen. The clever Queen then blackmails Elizabeth and threatens to burn her name to the ground if the Ambassador does not comply.
