Vingt-et-un tableaux représentent les gloires et luttes de l’épouse de Henri IV, tandis que les trois autres peintures sont des portraits d’elle et de ses parents. – 👈 Le tableau que vous pouvez voir en glissant vers la gauche se nomme L'Apothéose d'Henri IV et la proclamation de la régence de la reine, ‪le 14 mai‬ 1610.
