On this Valentines Day it is very important that women keep their virtue... Cisit the link above. :)

When the French King Louis XIV died, his heart was preserved. Many years later it was eaten by William Buckland, the Dean of Westminster, who saw it sitting in a jar on the mantelpiece at a home he was visiting, and mistook it for a pickled walnut.

Hm. I guess I'll call myself fortunate for not having been exposed to many disembodied hearts.

I wonder if he ate the whole thing.

I never know what to believe. Of Buckland, Wikipedia says:

Not only was his house filled with specimens - animal as well as mineral, live as well as dead - but he claimed to have eaten his way through the animal kingdom, the most distateful items being mole and bluebottle. Panther, crocodile and mouse are among the dishes recorded by his dinner guests. Augustus Hare, a famous English raconteur and contemporary, recalled, “Talk of strange relics led to mention of the heart of a French King preserved at Nuneham in a silver casket. Dr. Buckland, whilst looking at it, exclaimed, ‘I have eaten many strange things, but have never eaten the heart of a king before,’ and, before anyone could hinder him, he had gobbled it up, and the precious relic was lost for ever.” The heart in question is said to have been that of Louis XIV.

Oooh. Interesting!

So the intention and circumstances of the heart eating are in question. I'll do more research.

Either way...eeeeeew.

lol I love that vid :D I wonder what someone from the era of real videos like that would think of it.

About heart, I was all ugh because it was a heart and who the heck eats pickled anything besides actual pickles?! Then I laughed at the size difference in a heart and walnut and wondered if all kings hearts were that size :)

ALSO, why would they pickle his heart?!

ah see I was thinking of other nasty pickled items like pickled pigs feet..I have never and will never try them...well not w/out some huge cash payoff at the end ;) Anyway, my original thought was that it was in a clear container still in the pickling juice....blah..just saying that makes my stomach hurt.
