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…

Anyone who fought as a Jacobite back in the early Eighteenth Century was loyal to Catholic James and his line of successors. But what’s that got to do with the title of this piece? Simply that 10th…
