Welcome to Medieval Mistress Month! We are excited to let our Apple Dumpling Shops loose and talk about some pretty peachy mistresses. To kick it off, Karamia tells Emily about Agnes Sorel, the original ORIGINAL royal mistress to King Charles VII, who ruled the country (while Charles was in the corner being creepy); invented fashion and forks; and was the victim of a 600-year-old secret mercury poisoning plot. So grab your Meade and your favourite fur coat, and please help us figure out what century we are actually in.
