Brodequin - Trivia

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.

The brodequin was an instrument of torture designed to destroy the victim's legs by hammering wedges of wood or metal between the legs and boards tied tightly around them. In some cases the damage was so severe the marrow of the bones would flow freely from the wounds.
