The humid, cobbled streets of New Orleans’ French Quarter have their fair share of shadowy stories, but none are as notorious as that of Micaela Almonester, the beautiful Baroness de Pontalba. This Creole blueblood’s life was filled with decadent balls, palatial estates, and one infamous crime.

Plug in your headphones and learn all about New Orleans' "Bullet-Proof Baroness" but take care: It doesn’t get more Southern Gothic than this.
