Widowed Marie de Medici by ? (location unknown to gogm)

Marie was widowed by assassination in 1610. She was being crowned Queen of France and Henri IV's coach was stuck in traffic when the assassin struck.

Marie then immediately banished Henri IV's mistress Catherine Henriette de Balzac d'Entragues from court.
