charles, seni severim bilirsin. ama su catherine of braganza’ya cektirdiklerin? ya da soyle diyeyim, o korkunc metresin barbara villiers’in catherine’e cektirdikleri? sen de adeta bir 2000’lerin modern turk erkegi gibi eli kolu bagli durdun; o iblis barbara’ya tamam bibisim, sen bilirsin kukisim diye musamaha kapisini actikca actin. ama catherine her seferinde dusuk yapmasina ve danismanlarinin israrlarina ragmen ragmen bosamayip arkasinda durmus olmani takdir etmiyorum sanma.

“Catherine of Braganza was the Portuguese queen-consort of Charles II. Plans for the king to marry one of the Portuguese princesses originated during his childhood, but it was not until 1662, two years after the Restoration, that Charles and Catherine were married. Her impressive dowry included Tangier, Bombay and £300,000. Catherine was constantly upstaged during her marriage by the king’s many mistresses. One of the ways in which she could separate herself from the licentious court was to promote her virtues and her position in her portraiture. This is a version of Jacob Huysmans’s portrait of her with various regal accoutrements (an orb, crown and an ermine-lined robe). This emphasises her role as queen, a position none of the king’s mistresses could hold.”
