Nice introduction

I’ve just started reading Simon Schama’s A History of Britain.  William has won the Battle of Hastings (1066) and become king, but of course everything isn’t settled just yet.  Schama goes through the potential troublemakers:

“‘Eadric the Wild’ of Wales who was said to have married a fairy princess and introduced her to the king—‘Beauty, say hello to Beast, Beast, say hello to Beauty.’”
