Thomas of Franken, Prince Consort of Arendaal


Thomas of Franken married the young Aren Queen Beatrix I, then aged 16, when he was 23 years old. The couple's relationship was fairly typical of an aristocratic couple, with a degree of genuine affection underlying their obviously political union. He proved an ardent supporter of Beatrix during her rule. Upon meeting her for the first time he declared her to be "the most beautiful girl in Europe, perhaps in the world."

Despite his reputation as a man of fairly loose morals, he respected and was devoted to his wife and children. Like Beatrix he dotted on his children to the point of spoiling them. The indulgence of their parents would later be blamed for their children's numerous virtues and vices.


Thomas of Franken's wife, Queen Beatrix I


After Queen Beatrix I's death, Thomas was despondent. He wrote a toucing epitaph in her honour, part of which read: "The world has lost its most precious jewel, the dearest and greatest of all. Her mind was of a clarity unrivaled in this age, her face of a luminosity unparalleled. Her eyes were of a fire, a spirituality, a brilliancy I have never seen in any other woman. Her soul was love, compassion and beauty incarnate."


The first meeting of Thomas, Prince of Franken and Beatrix I of Arendaal

During the reign of his son, Edvard IV, Thomas divided his time between Emyn Arnen and his estates in Fjordholm, where he lived with two of his mistresses, Adélaïde de Olympe and Elisabeth de la Tour, both of whom he provided for generously in is final will and testament.

As Prince Consort, and later as father of King Edvard IV, Thomas attained distinction as a diplomat and general.
