King's Evil

Resource Toolbox

So called from the legend according to which the power of healing this disease was bestowed by Saint Remigius upon the French Kings. Edward the Confessor was the first King of England to cure by his touch this affliction. It is tuberculosis of the lymphatic glands and sometimes of bones and joint surfaces, with slowly suppurating abscesses and fistulous passages, the inflamed structures being subject to a cheesy degeneration.
