Badass of the Week

Isabella of France

"No man ever excited her resentment who did not perish under its effect;
the king himself forming no exception to this fact."

Sharon sent me a link to the story of Isabella. It is told in a very understandable manor, not like what you find in those stuffy history books. It gives you a real feeling for the times. She makes all these modern tough talking punks look like pantywaists. Go read the whole thing.

WTF is "an understandable manor"?
A book by Agatha Christie like "The Tradegy At Marsdon Manor" ?
