THE REAL BLUEBEARD: The Life of Gilles de Rais By Jean Benedetti
THE REAL BLUEBEARD
The Life of Gilles de Rais
By Jean Benedetti
This gripping tale explores the life of Gilles de Rais with an authoritative grasp of the historical context surrounding the real life figure of this well-bred French soldier who once fought alongside Joan of Arc - he was later convicted of the sexual abuse, torture and murder of 140 children. He was hanged and burned, then his body was placed in an iron casket. What led this wealthy Marshal of France, owner of extensive lands and great houses, to turn to sorcery, sexual deviancy and horrific murders? This book investigates extensively the true story of the medieval Nobleman who practiced a secret life of black magic and debauchery unequaled in the annals of history.
