position of emphatic personal pronoun in sentence

I notice the recommended translations of 'who herself became Queen of France' are all 'qui elle-même devint reine de France'.

But I assume you could also write 'qui devint elle-même reine de France' ?

Or does this sound less natural to French ears?

Yes, you could Tom, but there is more emphasis on 'elle-même' as we have written it.

Bonne Continuation !
