Gender in the Merovingian World

Just wondering...

...whether there's anything in this strange constellation of facts.  When Thatcher became Prime Minister she presumed to quote St Francis.  When a pope was elected who took the name of Francis, after the saint, because of his love of the poor, Thatcher was dead within a month.  Some kind of exorcism, perhaps?

  1. Wonder how many historians in a few centuries time will publish the connection you have just made? Doubtless stranger things have happened.
