1343 Jane de Belleville, alias Jeanne de Montfort, Jeanne de Clisson, “The Flame” and ”The Lionesss of Brittany,” was a sea-faring terror.
A French noblewoman who turned against her country when her beloved husband was executed by the French as a spy.
With vengeance in her heart, she sided with the English in the 1345 invasion of Brittany.
With a flaming torch in one hand and a sword in the other, she must have been a fearsome sight to behold, as she burned whole Norman villages to the ground.
