Henrietta Maria (1609-1669), Queen of Charles I, married in 1625; her Catholicism alienated many of her English subjects. She gave strong, loving support of Charles I during his troubles, and practical assistance during the Civil War by personally bringing munitions from France, and pawning her jewellery to raise funds.
