Dragon Tales
"Duchess" Lizzy Fleete

“Duchess” Lizzy Fleete

is Alabama Renaissance Faire's resident unworthy poor beggar, groveler, carrot- enthusiast, kisser of feet, praiser of magnificence, and footstool to Royalty. Having grown up in the somber shadow of the Fleet Debtor’s Prison, Lizzy learned fine manners from  the incarcerated noble-folk while running errands for a coin. After losing her carrot farmer husband (or possibly just misplacing him on purpose), Lizzy became a member of the unworthy poor, and sought a career as a lowly minion and beggar.
