Victoria of France
|Victoria of France|
24 June 1556|
17 August 1556 (age month 23 days)1|
|Father||Henry II of France|
|Mother||Catherine de' Medici|
Their mother's confinement came on June 24, 1556. Although Joan died in the womb, Princess Victoria survived the birth—only to die a little more than a month later.
Because their birth very nearly cost their mother her life, the king's physician advised the king that there should be no more children; therefore, Henry II stopped visiting his wife's bedroom and spent all his time with his longtime mistress, Diane de Poitiers.
