There Was A Real Romeo And Juliet

The love story of Heloise and Abelard is one of history’s great Romeo and Juliet tales, except with a whole lot more castration. The pair met when Heloise was a young, brilliant scholar and Abelard was her tutor. Happily ever after, right? Wrong. Heloise’s uncle didn’t take kindly to the match, and after the two married in secret, he gave them a gruesome wedding “present.

He and his friends broke into Abelard’s room one night and castrated him, severing the union and, obviously, other parts.
