Not quite so snuggly as the ones we've had on this theme - meet Agnes Sorel, mistress of Charles VII, and so beloved (ahem) that he basically invented the role of official royal mistress for her. He also gave her Loches, which is a very lovely town and castle I would very much like to receive from a boyfriend, tbh. And this tomb, also in Loches, to remember her by.
