The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman Book 4, Chapter 21 Summary

  • Francis the First of France wants Switzerland to be the godmother to his next child, and they agreeā€”but they insist on naming the child.
  • The name they've chosen is "Shadrach, Meschech, and Abed-nego" (three guys saved from burning to death by the power of God in the Hebrew Bible Book of Daniel). Yep, that's one name.
  • Hating the name, and unable to think of a way out of the situation, King Francis swears he'll go to war with them.
