And Have You Heard of Anyone Since Sodom and Gomorrah Punished for Just that Reason?

One night Princess Palatine saw her husband rub a small medal with the Virgin some place where she would least expect. I guess the idea was to protect the part of the body with which Duke of Orleans took some considerable risks. Embarrassing situation! Duke knew that it was meaningless to explain the value or the function of a holly relic to his protestant wife. All he begged for was her discretion. Liselotte agreed. In exchange she asked not to deflower the relic. Three centuries later we know that she didn’t keep her promise. As for the Duke, history books are silent on whether he kept his end of the bargain.
