Walter de Lacy was in conflict with Joce de Dinan. Walter and one of his knights, Arthur, were captured and held as prisoners at Ludlow Castle.
Arthur fell in love with the beautiful young Marion de Bruer - one of the ladies of the Castle.She helpfully arranged for Arthur and Walter to escape from their imprisonment. But, Arthur returned to the Castle to see his lover Marion and whilst they met secretly in her chamber, soldiers of Walter de Lacy followed him into the Castle and slaughtered the entire garrison.
Marion was distraught. She killed her treacherous lover with his own sword, then threw herself out of a window, and suffered a broken neck.
Imagine standing here in your armour and chain mail,waiting for the boiling oil to come over the wall.
