Parthenai (or Parthenay), Anne de

Parthenai (Or Parthenay), Anne De

an accomplished and pious lady, the wife of Anthony de Pons, count of Marennes, was duchess of Ferrara, daughter of Louis XII, and one of the brightest ornaments of the court of Renee de France. She was a protectress of learning, and was herself, on account of her abilities and accomplishments, the delight of every society into which she entered. She understood Greek and Latin, and took great pleasure in conversing with theologians and reading the Scriptures, which induced her to turn Protestant, and to give succor to the Reformed cause.
