The Capetians with Justine Firnhaber-Baker

As far as ruling houses go, France’s Capetian dynasty easily gives the Plantagenets a run for their money in power, prestige, and scandal. This week, Danièle speaks with Justine Firnhaber-Baker about the fierce and fascinating Capetian dynasty, how they made medieval France, and how they changed the world.

Justine Firnhaber-Baker is a Professor at the University of St Andrews, where she focuses her research on France between the thirteenth and fifteenth centuries. Her new book is House of Lilies: The Dynasty that Made Medieval France.
