The Jacquerie Blood Bath
While the heir apparent, Charles the Wise of France, has been in the provinces, the Jacquerie (Peasant) Revolt has been building in Paris led by Étienne Marcel, a representative for the merchants. When Charles returns to Paris, Marcel murders two nobles in an attempt to cow him but Charles the Wise is made of sterner stuff. He escapes Paris as the farmer, Guillaume Cale, organizes a peasant army to join Marcel in the rebellion. The revolt will be put down within months when Charles the Wise and King Charles II of Naverre (also known as Charles the Bad) strike back. Charles the Bad will negotiate with the peasants like Bruce Willis "negotiates" with terrorists in the movies. It's a slaughter. The blood of the peasants will flow for weeks thereafter as the nobles rout out the rebellious and send them to the gibbet or hang them from any convenient tree. By June 24th, 20,000 of the Jacquerie rebels are dead.      
Edward's Heart, Isabella's Soul
Do you remember Queen Isabella? She was the wife of King Edward II of England, She had him put to death by having a red hot poker shoved up his... well... it was painful. She ALSO had King Edward's heart cut out and set aside in a small chest... so to speak. She was eventually sidelined by her son, King Edward III and packed off to a nunnery. Now she has died at the age of 62. At her request, she will be buried in her wedding dress along with her husband's heart. She will finally have in death what she could not have in life... his undivided heart.

(BOOK) quote="Above all, they saw the complicity in lawlessness of the knight who, if he could not pay a brigand's demand for ransom, took service with his company for a year or two, 'so easy it was to make out of a gentleman a brigand.' No plan of revolution, but simple hate ignited the Jacquerie."
