Born into scandal and passed over for the throne several times, Little Jeannette finally got herself a throne at the age of 16, albeit not the one she had probably wanted... Nonetheless, Joan made the best of a bad situation and proved herself just as good as (if not better than) her male usurpers... that is, until a certain plague came knocking.
Memento mori. - Remember, you will die.
The main source for this episode (aside from Ben's extensive plague knowledge) was Elena Woodacre's 2013 book "The Queens Regnant of Navarre". Would highly recommend checking it out to learn more about Joan I, Joan II and their descendant queens!
