This is the original Gouache painting by Ron Embleton.

Francis, 2nd Duke of Guise (February 17, 1519 - February 24, 1563) was a French soldier and politician. Guise was the son of Claude of Guise and his wife Antoinette of Bourbon. His sister Mary of Guise was wife of James V of Scotland and mother of Mary I of Scotland.

He led the French to victory over Germany at Metz in 1552 and captured Calais from the English in 1558. Guise was one of the leaders of the Catholic faction in the French Wars of Religion, and his massacre of Huguenots at Wassy-sur-Blaise on March 1, 1562 marked the starting point of that conflict.

He was assassinated by Huguenot fanatics in 1563.
