Too Long; Didn't Read

Eight days after the funeral of the old queen, Bertrand of Artois came to Joan, distraught, dishevelled, in a state of agitation and confusion impossible to describe. Joan went quickly up to her lover, asking him with a look of fear to explain the cause of his distress. “I told you, madam,” cried the young baron excitedly, “you will end by ruining us all, as you will never take any advice from me.” “For God’s sake, Bertrand, speak plainly: what has happened? What advice have I neglected?” “Madam, your noble husband, Andre of Hungary, has just been made King of Jerusalem and Sicily, and acknowledged by the court of Avignon, so henceforth you will be no better than his slave.”
