13 O’Clock Episode 144 – Gilles de Rais

On this installment, we’re going full-on historical horror and discussing the notorious 15th century French knight Gilles de Rais, a fantastically wealthy war hero who fought alongside Joan of Arc, but is also suspected of raping, torturing, and murdering over 100 children and believed to the the inspiration for Charles Perrault’s tale of Bluebeard. But how much of Gilles’s criminal rap sheet is actually verified? Some researchers think that the entire litany of murder and mayhem attributed to Gilles was nothing but an elaborate witch hunt to get a hold of his vast fortune, property, and power. Don your armor and break out the brioche as Tom and Jenny break down the fascinating case of the alleged real-life Bluebeard on episode 144.

13 O’Clock Episode 137 – The Lost Library of Ivan the Terrible

On this historical and mysterious installment, Tom and Jenny are delving deep beneath the Russian soil to uncover the legend of the lost library of Ivan the Terrible. This purported collection of priceless ancient books, including lost poems by Virgil and previously unknown works by the likes of Tacitus, Suetonius, and many more, was allegedly brought to Moscow by Sophia Paleologue, the niece of Constantine XI and the grandmother of Ivan the Terrible. It was claimed that an underground vault was built beneath the Kremlin to house the priceless items, but as the years went on, its whereabouts became lost. Archaeologist Ignatiy Stelletsky spent most of his professional life hunting the library, but unfortunately never found it. Does it really exist? Is it still lurking somewhere in the tunnels underneath the Russian capitol? Or was it destroyed or dispersed long ago? Grab your pickax and mining helmet, because we’re heading underground for episode 137.

13 O’Clock Episode 135 – Rasputin and the Romanovs

On this bloody and historical installment, Tom and Jenny are traveling back to early 20th century Russia to discuss the legends surrounding the influential holy man Rasputin, sometimes known as the “Mad Monk,” and the relationship he fostered with the Romanovs, the last imperial family of Russia, all of whom were gunned down in a cellar by Bolshevik guards in 1918. We’ll also briefly discuss the nebulous time period before the bodies of the Romanovs were discovered and identified, when numerous people came forward claiming to be escaped members of the Romanov family, most notably teenage daughter Anastasia.
