Ireland 1300 A.D., A Tale of Honour, Violence and Justice
Honour was all important in Ireland in 1300 A.D. When a miller, Walter de Capella, insulted the mistress of John Thebaud it sparked a row between the two men. This row escalated and within a few short weeks a vicious and ultimately violent feud broke out.
