False of heart = liar or traitor
Light of ear = quick to listen to lies and gossip
Clotpoles = idiots
Tedious minxes = tiresome wanton women

Remember that, in Period, insults were considered an art form.  During a

insult contests - though somehow I cannot believe that a bunch of Vikings,
cabin fever, an abundance of mead and beer, and the ready availability of
live steel was really such a good idea.

Nunc est bibendum.
Politicians prefer unarmed peasants.
