The Colors of the Medieval World...
One of my readers asked me about the colors of the medieval era (from the 5th through 15th centuries). And this got me to thinking. For my own medieval stories, my research told me the people preferred bright colors and scarlet was often the color of nobility, including the English, French, Scots and Danes. But now I look to the source of those colors. See more.
Ever wonder what a daunting task it would be to set a romance in the time of revolution? What was I thinking, setting a romance in the French Revolution? Egads.
That bloody episode in France’s history saw thousands of people executed, not just Marie Antoinette, King Louis XVI and Maximilien de Robespierre’s political rivals, but also nobles, clergy, bourgeoisie and peasants lost their heads to the guillotine.
Well, to begin with, I had no choice.
