Following his assassination in 1610, she was the regent for her son King Louis XIII of France. The construction and furnishing of the Palais du Luxembourg,which she referred to as her Palais M├ędicis, formed her major artistic project. The site was purchased in 1612 and construction began in 1615, to designs of Salomon de Brosse. Her court painter was Peter Paul Rubens.
