About my penname: duchessina means "little duchess" and it is a reference to Caterina de'Medici, later Catherine, Queen of France. She was born in Italy in 1519, and orphaned that same year. Her father had been a Duke, and Catherine was his only child. She married at a young age; her husband was King Henry II of France. She was a cunning woman who kept three of her sons on the throne after their father's death.
