Henry III - Henry of Winchester & Parliament



Just being guided to discover this image of Henry III with almond shape eyes and a look that is distinct....Finding this image, led me to discover this blog, sharing below the link.

HANK WHITTEMORE'S SHAKESPEARE BLOG

THE SHAKESPEARE AUTHORSHIP QUESTION IS ANSWERED BY THE AUTHOR HIMSELF IN HIS MAGNIFICENT MONUMENT OF THE SONNETS

During the 2012 London Olympics in London, there was a setting with newspaper headlines and writing, or at least this appeared to be.....One caught my eye 'TO BE OR NOT TO BE'.

The setting was showing various London landmarks...

The Olympics began in ancient Greece and today shared with the world the two elements of this and the first being the passing of the flame of harmony between people from all nations - a flame of peace between people that is with also the olive branch a symbol with historical roots that might have been lost.

The second aspect is to encourage people to reach their personal potential. This is not possible in a land that is focussed to profit and corrupts the Holy Laws - one that refuses justice with a low mentality that sit in positions that are supposed to be responsibility roles and yet there is recklessness too..What is worse the complex ties of loyalty even if people are betrayed creates deep rifts of division and rebellion.

Man has had in his mind to control people and even to enslave people because he has not evolved to realise that actually the liberator of people has been shown to be the same throughout the generations.

Being on this journey of discovery, I am just learning and now sharing some of my learning..We are given the mind with reasoning ability to question everything. We are given our intuition to listen to our internal process.

Henry III was of the House of Plantagenet and with the Plantagenets, being connected with the House of Lancaster, the French connection today is consolidated, even with the Channel Tunnel link.

Henry III (1 October 1207 – 16 November 1272), also known as Henry of Winchester, was King of EnglandLord of Ireland and Duke of Aquitaine from 1216 until his death.[1] The son of King John and Isabella of Angoulême, Henry assumed the throne when he was only nine in the middle of the First Barons' War. Cardinal Guala declared the war against the rebel barons to be a religious crusade and Henry's forces, led byWilliam Marshal, defeated the rebels at the battles of Lincoln and Sandwich in 1217. Henry promised to abide by the Great Charter of 1225, which limited royal power and protected the rights of the major barons. His early rule was dominated first by Hubert de Burgh and then Peter des Roches, who reestablished royal authority after the war. In 1230 the King attempted to reconquer the provinces of France that had once belonged to his father, but the invasion was a debacle. A revolt led by William Marshal's son, Richard, broke out in 1232, ending in a peace settlement negotiated by the Church.'

Just taking snippets from the Wikipedia report:

 Henry supported his brother Richard in his bid to become King of the Romans in 1256, but was unable to place his own son Edmund on the throne of Sicily, despite investing large amounts of money. He planned to go on crusade to the Levant, but was prevented from doing so by rebellions in Gascony.

The term "parliament" first appeared in the 1230s and 1240s to describe large gatherings of the royal court, and parliamentary gatherings were held periodically throughout Henry's reign.[110] They were used to agree the raising of taxes which, in the 13th century, were single, one-off levies, typically on movable property, intended to support the King's normal revenues for particular projects.

Despite the various charters, the provision of royal justice was inconsistent and driven by the needs of immediate politics: sometimes action would be taken to address a legitimate baronial complaint, on other occasions the problem would simply be ignored.[115] The royal eyres, courts which toured the country to provide justice at the local level, typically for those lesser barons and the gentry claiming grievances against the major lords, had little power, allowing the major barons to dominate the local justice system.[116] The power of royal sheriffs also declined during Henry's reign. They were now often lesser men appointed by the exchequer, rather than coming from important local families, and they focused on generating revenue for the King.[117] Their robust attempts to enforce fines and collect debts generated much unpopularity among the lower classes.[118] Unlike his father, Henry did not exploit the large debts that the barons frequently owed to the Crown, and was slow to collect any sums of money due to him

The royal court was formed round Henry's trusted friends, such as Richard de Clare, the brothers Hugh and Roger Bigod and Humphrey de Bohun and Henry's brother, Richard.[120] Henry wanted to use his court to unite his English and continental subjects, and it included Simon de Montfort, originally a French knight who had married Henry's sister Eleanor and become the Earl of Leicester, in addition to the later influxes of Henry's Savoyard and Lusignan relatives.[121] The court followed European styles and traditions, and was heavily influenced by Henry's Angevin family traditions: French was the spoken language, it had close links to the royal courts of France, Castile, the Holy Roman Empire and Sicily, and Henry sponsored the same writers as the other European rulers'

He spent £58,000 on his royal castles, carrying out major works at the Tower of London, Lincoln and Dover.[127][h] Both the military defences and the internal accommodation of these castles were significantly improved.[128] At Windsor, a huge overhaul of the castle produced a lavish palace complex, whose style and detail inspired many subsequent designs in England and Wales.[129] The Tower of London was extended to form a concentric fortress with extensive living quarters, although Henry primarily used the castle as a secure retreat in the event of war or civil strife.

With the making of the Da Vinci Code, it is interesting that there was apparently refusal to film at Westminster Abbey and so instead filming took place at Lincoln Cathedral. I noticed one day a sign post that has revealed in Lincolnshire 'Jerusalem has been named' And with Dover in Kent, the Archbishop of Canterbury would also be connected with Canterbury being in Kent.

A couple of years ago looking for something, I discovered the KentKard has been named in Izmir which was formerly named Smyrna or Smyrni. meaning myrrh. The KentKard is a travel card.

While sharing snippets of information and insight, if you are really interested to discover what is relevant to know, the truth beyond what is presented, there is always more to learn. Seek and you shall find. In this time, especially in these last couple of years I am discovering how everything is connected in some way...

In 2012, the Daily Mail published an article that Angiers are demanding the crown jewels as compensation. Reading people's comments, there were people who laughed not taking this seriously. The Custodian of the Crown of David should be preserving the Kingdom belonging to Jesus Christ.

Yesterday I came across the place name Winchester and thought, in Chester a building has been named 'GOD'S PROVIDENCE HOUSE. Outside clearly it is written GOD'S PROVIDENCE IS MINE INHERITANCE. Prince Charles holds the title Earl of Chester.  Manchester has been named..and if man is removed, Chester remains.It is not as if complete denial of God exists in this land, not everyone is seeking to discover the truth and do right by everyone. One day there will be less lust for power and more giving and consideration - correcting wrongs and ensuring that fairness and righteousness is done.

Peace be with you
