Sample Book Insights: #1 The crusades were running down, and the English prince Edward took the cross in 1270 to go and help out his fellow Christians in the Holy Land. #2 The English prince, Edward, was left to defend Jerusalem on his own. He was quickly defeated by the Saracens, and while his wife tried to save him, he had to accept the terms of peace. Another of the long series of crusades had come to an end. #3 When Edward returned to England in 1274, the people were excited to see him and his wife, Eleanor. They had not taken to Eleanor when she first came to England as a girl bride, but they now welcomed her with open arms. #4 The coronation of Edward was rushed because he had so many things on his mind. The King’s Bench in Westminster Abbey, where he was proclaimed king, was decorated with marble brought from the Holy Land for the occasion.

Download or read book Castles of Wales PDF or another Format written by John Davis and published by Pen and Sword History. This book was released on 2022-04-30 with total page 252 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1277, Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, Prince of Gwynedd, met with Edward I of England in Aberconwy to finalise a treaty that would change the fate of both nations. His hand forced by Edwards invasion earlier that year, Llywelyns acceptance of the terms confirmed not only short-term peace but also that the rule of Wales would pass to Edward on his death. To augment his rising dominance, the English king embarked on a building project that saw the rise of some of the most recognisable fortresses in Europe. Quite literally, an Iron Ring of castles. Even before the construction of Edwards infamous Iron Ring, castles were by no means rare in Wales. Both before and simultaneous to William the Conquerors establishment of timber and stone fortresses in the south and borderlands, a process continued by many of his descendants, native structures also existed. Though often more palatial than protective, such constructions proved decisive to the ongoing wars and were often chosen as sites for future castles. Just as had been the case in England, the story of the castle crosses many centuries. Many began as Roman forts, whereas others date from more modern times. While many are now romantic ruins, others remain cherished family homes, if not hotels or museums. By adopting an identical approach to that seen in Castles of England, the purpose of this book is to throw light on the stories behind them. For as long as there have been castles in Wales, there have been mysteries within their walls. Murders that remain unsolved, treasures unfound, prisoners left to rot in the darkest pits and valiant warriors whose heroic deeds have become a cherished part of the Welsh identity. From blood-soaked heroes to long-lost legends, despotic pirates to wailing hags, Castles of Wales offers a fresh investigation into many of its fascinating fortresses. No country has more castles per square mile than Wales. Even today, there are more than 200 to be enjoyed. Inspired by such a rich tapestry of tales, this book provides an essential introduction to the nation many regard as The Land of Castles.

Book excerpt: Gold, jewels, art, land, culture and more - all man has ever had to offer has been up for grabs. All pretense of goodness and morality is dropped the moment a quick bit of 'Loot' is to be had. Whether for the risk, the rush, greed or just desperate necessity, the magnetic pull for ill-gotten plunder is just too strong. What is 'Loot' but the art of swindle, plunder and graft? Rare treasures and exquisite goods are wasted just as fast as pilfered, then lost, or hidden in secret, squirreled away, some never to be found again. Where could all this hidden 'Loot' be? Fortunately, modern man has been afforded the time and resources to ponder enticing mysteries such as these. Rather than carve out a ravaging path of 'Loot' and plunder, most of us challenge convention by peaceably seeking after the truth bound in these legends. Perhaps, in the process, we will even turn up a hidden trove for ourselves.

This book was released on 2007 with total page 663 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "England of the Plantagenet kings was a turbulent place. In politics it saw Simon de Montfort's challenge to the crown in Henry III's reign and it witnessed the deposition of Edward II. By contrast, and as relief, it also experienced the highly successful rules of Edward I and his grandson, Edward III. Political institutions were transformed with the development of parliament, and war, the stimulus for some of that change, was never far away. Wales was conquered and the Scottish Wars of Independence started in Edward I's reign, while Crecy and Poitiers were English triumphs under Edward III." "Beyond politics, the structure of English society was developing, from the great magnates at the top to the peasantry at the bottom. Economic changes were also significant, from the expansionary period of the thirteenth century to years of difficulty in the fourteenth, culminating in the greatest demographic disaster of historical times, the Black Death." "Embracing politics and government, kingship, the structure of society, France, Scotland, and Wales, as well as areas such as the environment, the management of the land, crime and punishment, Michael Prestwich's survey casts the Plantagenet past in a new and revealing light."--BOOK JACKET.
