    Possibly the woman in whose honour the Order of the Garter was originated.
    Said to be the lady who dropped her garter at a Court Ball in 1349 when dancing with King Edward III.
    Tradition says that to cover the lady's embarrassment King Edward picked up the garter, and with the words, 'Honi soit qui mal y pense', (roughly translated as 'shame on anyone who thinks evil of this'), buckled it on to his leg.
