King Francis I left his mark on the national culture of France as a royal patron of the arts. The design of the limited edition François I fountain pen pays homage to the life and work of the king of the French Renaissance. Splendid badges of royal power blend harmoniously with artistic expression. The Edition 4810 pen features a tiger eye stone, a reference to a charm worn by François I, contrasting with the precious black resin of the cap and barrel. Ornamental Renaissance motifs are masterfully engraved on the elaborately modeled clip and gold-plated rings, giving the pen its royal aura.
Francis I was the first Renaissance king of France, crowned in 1515 in the cathedral of Reims. During his reign, François Ier brought France to an artistic and cultural ascendancy. A passionate poet, he was known to improve the Royal Library and make himself available to the public. As the founder of the College de France in Paris, which still exists today, he introduced the study of Latin, Greek and Hebrew. His policy in 1536 helped the French dispense with Latin as the language of the bureaucracy. Famous artists were invited by Francis I to settle in France. Among them, Leonardo da Vinci, who brought the “Mona Lisa” to Paris and worked at the king's court until her death.
