I did promise you an episode on Matilda of Tuscany, and here it is.
But, it is not mine. This episode is from the fantastic podcast “A History of Italy” by Mike Corradi. I cam across it when I was researching the Matilda Episode and I realised in horror, that if I wee to create a Matilda Episode, it would be very much like this one, only worse. So I asked Mike whether I could borrow his work.
Listening to Mike will give you a great though different perspective of the same events and I cget teh chance to lounge about the house, watch Netflix and eat crisps…..
