Alice Chaucer with Michèle Schindler

Much ink has been spilled on Geoffrey Chaucer, but there’s another Chaucer that should be showing up on our radar, as well. This week, Danièle speaks with Michèle Schindler about the life and times of Alice Chaucer.

Michèle Schindler studied at Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität and is the author of Lovell our Dogge: The Life of Viscount Lovell, Closest Friend of Richard III and Failed Regicide, and the forthcoming work What is Better Than a Good Woman: Alice Chaucer, Commoner and Yorkist Matriarch, both of which are published by Amberley Publishing.
