So, a recent Daily Post prompt caught my eye so I decided to see if I could answer it.
Assemble your dream dinner guest list. Think of all the famous, or infamous, people living or dead, and pick 6 to share a fine meal with. Who do you pick? Why? What do you expect to happen?
I think I would have to invite the following six women from the pages of English history:
Empress Maude (or Mathilda, depending on whom you ask)
Eleanor of Aquitaine
Joan, illegitimate daughter of King John
Katarina of Aragon (Henry VIII’s first wife?)
I have chosen these six women because they are all strong women who stood firm for their beliefs and did not flinch in the face of danger.
As for what I would expect to happen, I’m not sure. They are from such differing time periods, though I know Eleanor knew her mother-by-law Maude and I wouldn’t be surprised if Katarina and Elizabeth had interactions since Katarina was married to Elizabeth’s father. I’m sure that I would probably do the majority of the talking, though.
