|9 aNamely, that being quarrelsome is more important than actually accomplishing anything.
CHAPTER 41 Thanks to Charlemagne, though, the Frogs had discovered that rule by the bdivine right of kings is the way to go,
2 Especially if you have a tendency to break up into quarrelsome factions, because quarrels about divine right make for plenty of cwars,
3 dWhich means lots of glory all round,
4 eAnd is why the Frogs are so superior to everyone else.
5 For a long time, the Frogs sort of specialized in being quarrelsome with others.
6 For example, they quarreled with the fpope in Rome and set up their own gpope,

4 Which may help explain why they eventually allowed Joan of Arc to have a lot of glory that was normally reserved exclusively for French men.
CHAPTER 71 Joan of vArc was a teenage peasant girl who couldn't read or write, but who had religious wvisions about saving France from the English in battle.
2 Naturally, this made perfect sense to the Frog generals, who were running out of ideas about how to score against England,
