  • Notes 
    • "[I]n captivity in England nineteen years, stern, severe but just, strengthened the Crown against the nobility and attempted to reform the Church and to establish the king's law throughout the country, skilled in music and poetry, murdered by rebels who sought to displace his line with that of the descendants of Robert II by his second wife."
