CBD theme day – Looking Out the Castle Window

Looking out the window of Blois Royal Castle. The porcupine is the symbol of King Louis XII, born in the castle in 1462. His motto was “Qui s’y frotte s’y pique” which is a play on words: se frotter means both literally to rub up against something and metaphorically to cross swords with them; se piquer means to be pricked.
Par une fenêtre du château royal de Blois. Le porc-épic est le symbole de Louis XII, né au château en 1462 et dont le devise était “Qui s’y frotte s’y pique”.
