Mark the year and mark the night When Severn shall re-echo with affright The shrieks of death through Berkley's roofs that ring. Shrieks of an agonising king. She-wolf of France, with unrelenting fangs, That tearst the bowels of thy mangled mate!
Isabel. The Spanish form of Elizabeth. The French form is Isabelle.
