Last Dueling Post

'Tis the end of my dueling kick, and it's just a short one today. Found in Barbara Holland's Gentlemen's Blood, page 72.

There was a duel between two aristocrats in the early 18th century, both of whom died on the field of honor. “The butchered bodies were taken home. It was said that Lady Mohun was furious because her husband’s corpse was laid on a valuable bedspread and quite spoiled it”.

And they say aristocrats don't marry for love.
