21 September 1559
Francis is crowned King of France at Rheims Cathedral by Mary’s uncle, the Cardinal of Lorraine

“Out of respect for his father’s memory, Francis had issued his orders that no lady, save the Queen of Scotland, his spouse, should presume to appear in gold, jewels, or embroidery, or wear any other dress than black velvet or black silk made very plainly…Mary Stuart alone wore her jewels, and was arrayed in glorious apparel that day, amidst the sable train. She was not included in the coronation rite because, as Queen-regnant, it would have been beneath her dignity to submit to the forms prescribed for a Queen-consort of France, in which there was an exhortation admonishing the Queen ‘that she is crowned merely by the favor of her husband, and must undertake nothing without the sanction of the King.’ Now, Mary Stuart, by whose favour her spouse had recently received the crown-matrimonial of Scotland, could not take any such vow; she therefore contented herself with gracing with her presence, as an independent Sovereign, the consecration of her royal husband…”

- Agnes Strickland, The Life of Mary Queen of Scots, Volume I

* Note: some sources attribute Francis’s coronation date as 19 September 1559
