With Anna Cusack

Very little is really known about Joanna of Navarre. What we do know is that she must have led an extraordinary life; first a Princess of Navarre, then the Duchess of Brittany, then she married Henry IV and became Queen of England, only to finally be accused and imprisoned for being a Witch during the reign of Henry V.
