Averil duBois d'Avignon - updated 10/23/2005
Mistress Averil duBois d'Avignon was a 14th Century
Frenchwoman. Five years ago she disappeared and her identity was stolen
by a Persian lady from Tabriz. Fortunately this Persian lady is also a
calligrapher/illuminator, so no one has seemed to mind- least of all her
sister, Naquiba Bahiyyah, who is also from Northern Persia. One can only
hope that she will reveal her Persian name one day soon.
