"And I, Barbara of Austria, neither young nor beautiful, would be the duke's second duchess before the pale December sun set." -The Second Duchess by Elizabeth Loupas
This sentence certainly conveys the meaning of the title all around. It kind of makes you feel bad for Barbara though being that she is neither young nor beautiful. Of course, since she is of the Hapsburg line of severely inbred royals, I guess it all makes sense.
