 Jane de Belleville ~ alias Jeanne de Montfort, Jeanne de Clisson, Jane de Belleville, “The Flame” and ”The Lionesss of Brittany”
 Year Active: 1343Country of Origin: FrenchA French noblewoman who turned against her country when her beloved husband was executed by the French as a spy. With vengeance in her heart, she sided with the English in the 1345 invasion of Brittany. Seeking to enter the fray herself, she purchased and prepared three ships with money from the sale of her possessions. She was a ruthless mistress of revenge at sea and on land, and no ship or town near the coast of Normandy was safe from her wrath. With a flaming torch in one hand and a sword in the other, she must have been a fearsome sight to behold, as she burned whole Norman villages to the ground.
