Episode 18 - Ladies of Llangollen

Lady Eleanor Butler and Sarah Ponsonby

So many fairytales involve princesses trapped in castles forced to marry people they don’t love. Then the prince swoops in and saves the princess, and they run off together and live happily ever after. A fairytale right? Because real life doesn’t follow those carefully crafted narratives, filled with villains and moral themes. There’s no prince coming to rescue you. And happily ever after is never certain. Life is messy, and you can’t just run away from your problems like that.Unless of course, your name is Lady Eleanor Butler or Sarah Ponsonby. The two most celebrated virgins in Europe.
