2: Inês de Castro

This week Vulgar History’s Internationale travels bring us to 14th century Portugal, where Inês de Castro (1325-1355) was kind of a big deal. Her charisma and cleverness were such that she made her way from lady in waiting to the Prince’s official mistress to the ZOMBIE QUEEN OF PORTUGAL. But you’ll have to listen to the episode to find out how that all happened. 

Make sure to take a look at instagram.com/vulgarhistorypod for pictures of the truly spectacular tombs mentioned in the episode!!
