But though they were always ready, the Danes had very bad memories and often used to forget that they had been paid the Danegeld and come back for It almost before they had sailed away.
By that time Ethelread was always unready again. Edward the Confessor was with difficulty prevented from confessing to all these and many other cnmes committed in hIS reign, as he was in the habit of confessing everything whether he had done it or not, and was thus a Weak King.

What would have happened If a Boadrcca had been the daughter of Edward the Confessor? Does It matter? Have you the faintest recollection of I Ethelbreth? What have you the famtest recollection of?

When William the Conqueror landed he lay down on the beach and swallowed two mouthfuls of sand. The Norman Conquest was a Good Thing, as from this time onwards England stopped being conquered and thus was able to become top nahan.
This was called the Feutile System, and in order to prove that it was true he wrote a book called the Doomsday Book, WhICh contained an inventory of aU the Possessions of all hIS subjects jafter reading the book through carefully William agreed WIth it and SIgned It, indicating to everybody that the Possessions mentioned m it were now his.
William the Conqueror is memorable for having loved an old stag as if It was his father, and was in general very fond of animals: Another very conquermg law made by Wilham I said that everyone had to go to bed at eight o'clock. Although in all these ways William the Conqueror r was a very strong king he was eventually. Henry tried to console himself for hIS loss by eating a surfeit of palfreys. Stephen, however, Soon discovered that she had been malchristened, too, and was unable to say for certain whether her name was Matilda or Maud.
After this Stephen and Matilda or Maud spent the reign escapmg from each other over the snow in nightgowns while ' God and His Angels slept. According to Henry's reformed system a man was tried first by a jury of Ius equals and only had to plunge his head into the ploughshares afterwards in order to confirm the JUry's opinion that he had committed the crime This was obviously a much Better Thing.
The Combat was a system by which m civil cases the litigants decided their dispute by mortal combat, after which the defeated party was allowed to fly the country. But Henry altered all this and declared that a Grand Jury must decide first what the parties were fighting about: Belloc was therefore made a Saint and the Knights came to be called the Canterbury Pilgrims.
Shortly afterwards Henry died of despair on receiving news that his sons were all revolting. All this was not only pious but a Good Thing, as many of the people who were burnt, bricked, tortured, etc, became quite otherworldly.
Nowadays people are not so pious, even sinners being de 6ied the benefits of fervent Religion. Whenever he returned to England he always set out again immediately for the Mediterranean and was therefore known as Richard Gare de Lyon. He had a A Wild KIng sword of enormous dimensions with which he used to practise cutting iron bars and anvils in half, whereas the Saladms had very sharp swords which were only useful for cutting cushions In half. In spite of which the Crusaders under Richard never got J erusalern back: Blondin eventually round him by singmg the memorable song or " touralay " called "0 RIchard et mon Droit" " Are you right, there, RIchard?
He was thus a Bad King. Indeed, he had begun badly as a Bad Prince, having attempted to answer the Irish Question1 by pulhng the beards of the aged Irish chiefs, which was a Bad Thing and the wrong answer. In spite of the King's efforts to prevent It the Bull succeeded in landing and gave orders that John himself was not to be born or marry or die except in Church porches ; that no one was to obey him or stand hun a dnnk or tell him the right time or the answer to the Irish Question or anything nice.
So at last John gave way and he and hIS subjects began once more to be born and to marry and to rue, etc. That no one was to be put to death, save for some reason- except the Common People. That everyone should be free- except the Common People. That everything should be of the same weight and measure throughout the Realm- except the Common People. That the Courts should be stationary, instead of following a very tiresome medieval official known as the King's Person all over the country.

Amongst his Merrie Men were Will Scarlet The Scarlet Ptmpemel , Black Beauty, White Melville, Little Red Riding Hood probably an outdaughter of his and the famous Friar Puck who used to Sit in a cowslip and suck bees, thus becoming so fat that he declared he could put his girdle round the Earth Robin Hood was a miraculous shot with the longbow and It is said that he could split a hare at paces and a Sheriff at He therefore spent his time blowing a horn and shooting at the Sheriff of Nottingham who was an outwit.
He always used to sound his hom first, particularly when shooting round a 28 AND ALL THAT corner; this showed his sportsmanship and also enabled him to shoot the Sheriff runmng, which was more difficult. Robin Hood was also very good at socialism and often took money away from rich clergymen and gave Sheriff running. He died very romantically.
This so confused the Londoners that they armed themselves with staves, jerkins, etc. Later, when he was in the Pope's Bosom, Henry further confused the People by presenting all the Bonifaces of the Church to Italians And the whole reign was rapidly becoming less and less memorable when one of the Barons called Simon de Montfort saved the situation by announcing that he had a memorable Idea.
The other Barons were, of course, all WIcked Barons. They had, however, many Important duties under the Banorial system. These were: To be armed to the teeth. To extract from the Villein' Saccage and Soccage, tollage and tallage, pillage and ullage, and, in extreme cases, all other banonal arnemues such as umbrage and pan age.

Be brutal AIl. Edward had them all amalgamated into one large Bench called the King's Bench, and sat on it himself. Edward I, who had already m his Saladin days piously decimated several thousand Turks at Nazareth, now felt so strong that he decided to Hammer the Scots, who accordingly now come right into History. LVVV n.. In answer to this Edward captured the Bruce and had him horribly executed with savage ferocity. Soon after, Edward died of suffocation at a place called Burrow-in-the-Sands and was succeeded by his worthless son Edward II.

Edward therefore pardoned them m spite of his private feelings that the original plan was more romantic still.
