214: The Murder of William Cantilupe in Medieval England w/ Melissa Julian-Jones - A True Crime History Podcast Most Notorious! A True Crime History Podcast

    • True Crime

We're back again to the Hundred Years War in this episode of Most Notorious - this time in England. Sir William Cantilupe, a battle-hardened knight who had recently been acquitted of murdering his brother Nicholas, was discovered dead in a lonely field in May of 1375, in what appeared to be a staged crime scene.

And it was his wife Maude and their household staff whom authorities would soon accuse of committing the horrific deed.

My guest is Melissa Julian-Jones, author of "Murder During the Hundred Year War: The Curious Case of William Cantilupe". She talks about the dark and dramatic family tale, and offers some theories on why William Cantilupe might have been targeted for murder.
