[quote=""EC2""]Not about this book, but allied to the Simon de Montfort subject, I have been browsing a book titled The Death of Kings by Michael Evans. I've posted about it on another thread where he states that Jane Seymour had a C section. Anyway, he discusses the cult of Simon de Montfort and makes a very odd WTF statement. He's talking about cults that arose around places where bits of the dismembered de Montfort were taken after the Battle of Evesham, and goes on to say 'There is sadly no evidence of a cult based on his genitals.'
"sadly'??? Shakes head. :confused: :eek: [/quote]

Good thing, in my opinion. I would not like to see its pilgrim badge.
