Character description

Petronilla or Petronella de Meath (c. 1300 – 1324) was the maidservant of Dame Alice Kyteler, a fourteenth century Irish noblewoman. She was accused of being an accomplice to witchcraft with her mistress and was flogged and eventually burned at the stake on 3 November 1324, in Kilkenny, Ireland. She was the first case in Ireland's history of death by fire for the crime of heresy.
