A Murderess Affair

Hello and welcome to A Murderess Affair. It’s black history month and to celebrate we’re talking about Stephanie St. Clair, who battled hardcore mobsters, police-both corrupt and not, and other gangsters who tried to take over the piece of New York she’d carved out for herself and taken control of. She’s probably one of the most badass women in history and I’ve been really looking forward to covering her story.

A Murderess Affair

Today we’re talking about Fredegund the Assassin Queen-probably one of the most hysterically evil people I’ve had the fortune of reading about. In a nutshell, Fredegund was the epitome of every evil mistress or wife. A consort who gained the affection of a king, she either killed or hired someone to kill any who may get in the way of her and later, her son's reign.

Ick ick ick ick ick okay guys this one is a gross one today, like even I was hesitant about covering this one because it’s really messed up so consider this your overall warning about Omaima Nelson and how she murdered her husband.

About

My name is Gabrielle, and this is the podcast where I talk about women in history known for mayhem and murder. 

I've been a true crime fan for a long time, probably starting from when I was entirely too young. One of the things that I've noticed is that a lot of the movies, books, tv shows, and podcasts are dominated by stories of men. What else is new, right? 

But, that's how the idea for this podcast was born. With a desire to share the stories of women, both past and present, that oftentimes get overlooked in the world of true crime. After all, feminism is about gender equality, and women can be murderers too. 

Take a look around, find some murderesses that maybe you've never heard of before, and if you have any questions, comments, concerns, or recommendations, feel free to reach out on the contact page! I'd love to hear from you. 

Stay spooky friends!
