Joan I became Queen of Navarre at 18 months old, and Queen of France at 12 years old. Due to her age and gender, she was prevented from taking a very active role in either kingdom. Her life saw an endless barrage of men trying to dim her light - from the cold man she married, to the foes invading her lands, to the vindictive bishop who may have cursed her with witchcraft. But throughout her tragically brief existence, Joan handled herself with a grace and dignity that set the bar high for the next generation ... not least her sole surviving daughter, Isabella "the She-Wolf" of France.
Joan's episode serves as a nice prelude to that of her husband, Philip IV, whom many of our listeners have been looking forward to since the start! Now that we're back on schedule with our recordings, expect that episode to be released next week!!
