Bad marriages often end in divorce, seldom do they lead to war.
Women had few rights in the medieval Kingdom of the Franks. One brave woman defied everything expected of her to take control of her life.
In twelfth century, Ermengarde, heiress to the rich Viscounty of Narbonne, escaped from her political marriage to her powerful overlord, found allies, and waged war against him.
My forthcoming book is a historical fiction, based on the life of Ermengarde of Narbonne (1127?-1197).
