[quote=""Misfit""]Is there any chance that's the Mabel Talvas that Valerie Anand had in The Disputed Crown? She was quite delightfully evil with her poisonous drafts and bumping people off.[/quote]

Yes, that would be the dame in question. I have since read that a lot of what's written about Mabel Talvas is propaganda by monks who hated her, but I've never investigated further for myself.
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Histoire de Guillaume le Mareschal
