Medieval Monday | Word for March 2023

Welcome to Medieval Monday! The word for March is Demesne.

From Merriam Webster Dictionary:

The word actually began as "demayn" or "demeyn" in the 14th century, when it was borrowed from Anglo-French property law. At that time, the Anglo-French form was "demeine." Later, the Anglo-French spelling changed to "demesne," perhaps by association with another term from Anglo-French property law: mesne, meaning "intermediate."

I see this as another opportunity to weave this particular word into one of my medieval stories. Perhaps a hunting event? A secret tryst? My writer's mind is spinning a tale.

Now let's take a peek to see what these Ladies of Medieval Monday have to share:

Until next Monday, share the medieval knowledge!
