Jeanne II, Tainted Queen

I found this very interesting, and wish to thank Sharon for allowing me to reblog it.

What was equally interesting to me was that the Count Odo of Burgundy mentioned in this article must have been a distant but direct descendant of Count Odo who was both a rival and an ally to Charles Martel in the 8th century. I am currently writing the screenplay, but after that will work on the novel “The Franks”, where Odo is a significant character both in repelling the Muslim invasion of central and northern Europe and in the early formation of the empire Martel’s grandson, Charlemagne, would someday inherit.
