Title of Special Interest

Lordship Title of Billing, Northamptonshire

 

William the Conqueror combines the two Billing lordships and grants them to his half-brother Robert Count of Mortain as a reward for his support in the invasion fleet for which he supplied 120 ships and fought in the Battle of Hastings. The transition of Robert’s lands and titles to his son and heir William were not seamless, as a result William's relationship with King Henry is strained. Henry offers him the hand in marriage of Mary of Scotland (daughter of King Malcolm III) which he refuses. Frustrated and angry he leaves England for Normandy. There he joins forces with the Duke of Normandy, and together they attack several of King Henry’s holdings in Europe. William is imprisoned in the Tower of London, all his lands and titles are stripped from him.

Penny for the Robert…

November 8, 2019

Everyone’s heard of Guy Fawkes. Let’s face it, we’ve all chanted, “Penny for the Guy…” and watched fireworks popping in the sky because of him. However, what many people forget is that he wasn’t the only person involved in the Gunpowder Plot. Far from it! In fact, the real mastermind behind the conspiracy was a…

King John and the Crown Jewels – Are we awash with wishful thinking?

October 12, 2019

King John, a royal well known for losing things… including much of England to the French, the respect of his barons (leading to his signing of Magna Carta), and… some believe… the crown jewels. Add to the mix that he’d been excommunicated too, and one starts to get the picture of a king out on…

The Death of William the Conqueror – An Explosive Affair

September 9, 2019

William the Conqueror… a name that trips off the tongues of even primary school children. He turned Britain on its head, shaped the history of England for ever more, and has since been a household name for centuries. But bearing in mind the fact that he invaded England back in 1066 and took over, the…

The Wars of the Roses – The Final Thorny Exchange

August 22, 2019

The Battle of Bosworth Field, 1485; the end of 331 years of Plantagenet rule, and the beginning of the Tudor dynasty. As if it were staged for a soap opera, it had everything from politics and treachery, to brutality and brinkmanship. If one chucks in a slain king whose body is found over five hundred…

The Battle of Northampton – Drama, treachery, and the risk of treason

July 10, 2019

York and Lancaster. Two powerful English factions, each with an extraordinarily fanatical following. Religion; politics; a mentally unstable king; large egos; and competing lust for power in abundance. It was a heady mix that had been bubbling for many years during The Wars of the Roses, and on 10th July, 1460 yet another head to…
