Simon de Montfort, 6th Earl of Leicester
Simon de Montfort, 6th Earl of Leicester
He led the rebellion against King Henry III of England during the Second Barons' War of 1263–64, and subsequently became de facto ruler of England. During his rule, Montfort called two famous parliaments. The first stripped the King of unlimited authority, the second included ordinary citizens from the towns.[1] For this reason, Montfort is regarded today as one of the progenitors of modern parliamentary democracy.[2] After a rule of just over a year, Montfort was killed by forces loyal to the King in the Battle of Evesham.

Sir John Gage, Garter Knight (1479-1557)


The Most Noble Order of the Garter, founded in 1348, is the highest order of chivalry existing in England and is dedicated to the image and arms of St. George as England's patron saint. It is bestowed on recipients from British and other Commonwealth realms. After peerages (and after the Victoria Cross and George Cross), it is the pinnacle of the honours system in the United Kingdom. Membership in the order is limited to the Sovereign, the Prince of Wales, and no more than twenty-four members, or Companions. The order also includes supernumerary knights and ladies (e.g., members of the British Royal Family and foreign monarchs). Bestowing the honour has been described as one of the Monarch's few remaining truly personal, executive prerogatives.



The order's emblem, depicted on insignia, is a garter with the motto Honi soit qui mal y pense (Middle French: "shame upon him who thinks evil upon it") in gold lettering. Members of the order wear such a garter on ceremonial occasions.

Sir Richard & Lady Eleanor
The 14th-century memorial effigy in Chichester Cathedral which inspired Larkin's poem "An Arundel Tomb" (Note: The effigies in Chichester Cathedral are attributed to Richard FitzAlan and Eleanor of Lancaster. FitzAlan and Eleanor were actually buried in Lewes Priory. Although Larkin called the effigies a "tomb", they are actually a "memorial". See Talk, Distinction needs to be made: Not a "tomb" but a "memorial".) The plaque in the cathedral reads as follows: An Arundel Tomb The figures represent Richard Fitzalan III, 13th Earl of Arundel (ca 1307-1376) and his second wife Eleanor, who by his will of 1375 were to be buried together "without pomp" in the chapter house of Lewes Priory. The armour and dress suggest a date near 1375; the knight's attitude is typical of that time, but the lady's crossed legs, giving the effect of a turn towards her husband, are rare. The joined hands have been thought due to "restoration" by Edward Richardson (1812-69), but recent research has shown the feature to be original. If so, the monument must be one of the earliest showing the concession to affection where the husband was a knight rather than a civilian.
