Noble Friends,

On this date in 1343 Olivier de Clisson was found guilty of treason and 
beheaded at Les Halles in Paris. As a result, his wife, Jeanne de 
Clisson, sold their holding, bought a fleet of ships, and took to the 
sea as a pirate to seek revenge against King Philip VI of France and the 
nobility: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_2 . What a woman! Someone 
definitely not to be messed with.

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, That Crazy Scot
