Charles the Mad | Medieval Archives PodcastA few podcast episodes ago we featured the crazy Kings and Queens of the medieval era. Kings made of glass, singing and laughing while battles raged in the kingdom. A Queen who embraced her dead husband nightly and was so jealous she forbid other women from being around his corpse!

Last week author Andrea Cefalo featured The Maddest Medieval Monarchs week on her blog. If you haven’t read her blog head over to You can read the first chapter of her book, The Fairytale Keeper, and even order online. Or you could read about the six strangest medieval diseases with some gnarly pictures!

You can also connect with Andrea via her Facebook page, follow Andrea on Twitter, view her pictures on Pinterest and check out her book on Goodreads.
