No - she was tortured on one (so called). Said wheel split apart and killed several people standing nearby, so her executors decided to chop her into bits. Instead of blood, she bled milk. I tend to believe (along with others) that she's another made up saint used to replace older things - in this case, fiery wheels (both of which appear to be symbols to do with the sun in British Celtic culture).

Who is catherine and did she invent the wheel?
No but they tried to break her on one, but the wheel broke, the monkey got choked and they all went to heaven in a little row boat.

Surely that's illegal! They must have been in a hurry to get her Will proved (or whatever the phrase is) and the loot divi'd out.

I don't think I'll bother writing a Will if that sort of thing is likely to happen... :eek!!!!:

I think that was a wee bit prior to the Second World War. About a hundred years, in fact.
Quite right IJ, wish I hadn't nentioned the monkey now, it's only a song after all...three six nine, the goose drank wine the monkey chewed tobacco on the street car line, the line broke, the monkey got choked.....
