Thanks a lot for the updates, An Ard Ri!
I find these day to day events quite fascinating; just yesterday, having read about the anniversary of the storm of the Tuileries Palace, I started a book on Revolution.

You're welcome

Of the 3 events the storming of the Tuileries Palace is the one I would not like to time travel back too!

No, neither would I. Neither as one of those who were in the Palace, and certainly not one of those storming it. And especially not as a Swiss guard.

Louis VIII is, to me, one of the most interesting French Kings. Not to mention, he's the only French Monarch who became King of England as well (even if the Treaty of Lambeth concluded he had never been a legitimate King). Had John I not died at the height of Louis' triumphs (making most English barons switch allegiance in favour of young Henry III), who knows, maybe there would be union of English and French Crowns?

His wife, Blanche of Castile, was even more fascinating: she was Queen (Regnant) of France in all but name not only during her Regency, but even after Louis IX came of age. And she certainly was more able than quite a few Kings before and after her.

I agree Artemisia,Louis VIII is highly interesting.Though his reign was brief he did have some legacy in the form of Blanche,Louis IX and Isabelle de France!
