Way to go, Louise

According to the World Post, archaeologists have recently unearthed a really well-preserved corpse of a French noblewoman who died back in the 17th century. Evidently, they found her husband’s heart neatly tucked in around her feet. Now I prefer to believe Louise de Quengo got pissed off royal and ripped it out while hubby, Toussaint, was still breathing, then quickly joined the neighborhood convent to avoid prosecution. Of course, we’ll never know, but it would be a great story.
