    Marriage 1 Spouse Unknown Children

    1. Has Children Margaret CORNWALL b: ABT 1280 in Winchester, Southampton, England

    This particular Plantagenet is Richard, the First Earl of Cornwall… the second son of King John Lackland.

    He was born on 5 January 1209 at Winchester Castle, the second son of King John and Isabella of Angoulême. He was made High Sheriff of Berkshire at the age of only eight, was styled Count of Poitou from 1225 and in the same year, at the age of sixteen, his brother King Henry III gave him Cornwall as a birthday present. Richard’s revenues from Cornwall provided him with great wealth, and he became one of the wealthiest men in Europe. Though he campaigned on King Henry’s behalf in Poitou and Brittany, and served as Regent three times, relations were often strained between the brothers in the early years of Henry’s reign. Richard rebelled against him three times, and had to be bought off with lavish gifts… from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard,_1st_Earl_of_Cornwall.

    Walter was the illegitimate son of Richard’s mistress.

    Richard had the reputation of being a womanizer. His mistress, Joan de Valletort, was certainly the mother of at least two of his illegitimate children.

    Philip de Cornwall, was a cleric in 1248
    Joan de Cornwall, in 1258.
    Walter de Cornwall, was granted lands by his half-brother Edmund, and died in 1313.

    Richard’s father was King John of England.

    John (24 December 1167[1] – 19 October 1216[2]) was King of England from 6 April 1199 until his death.

    John was the youngest of five sons of King Henry II of England and Eleanor, Duchess of Aquitaine, and was their second

    King John

    surviving son to ascend the throne; thus, he continued the line of Plantagenet or Angevin Kings of England. Prior to his accession, he was Earl of Cornwall and Gloucester, but this title merged into the Crown when he became King.

    John’s oldest surviving brother, Richard, became king upon the death of their father in 1189, and John was made Count of Mortain (France). When Richard refused to honour their father’s wishes and surrender Aquitaine to him as well, John staged a rebellion. The rebellion failed, and John lost all potential claims to lands in France. John acceded to the throne as the younger brother of King Richard I, who died without issue.

    During his lifetime John acquired two epithets. One was “Lackland” (French: Sans Terre), because, as his father’s youngest son, he did not inherit land out of his family’s holdings, and because as King he lost significant territory to France.[3] The other was “Softsword” signifying his supposed lack of prowess in battle.[4]

    Apart from entering popular legend as the enemy of Robin Hood, he is perhaps best-known for having acquiesced – to the barons of English nobility – to seal Magna Carta, a document which limited kingly power in England and which is popularly thought of as an early step in the evolution of limited government.

    John’s parents were King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine

    Henry II, King of England

    Henry II (5 March 1133 – 6 July 1189), ruled as King of England (1154–1189), Count of Anjou, Count of Maine, Duke of Normandy, Duke of Aquitaine, Duke of Gascony, Count of Nantes, Lord of Ireland and, at various times, controlled parts of Wales, Scotland and western France. Henry, the great-grandson of William the Conqueror, was the first of the House of Plantagenet to rule England. Henry was the first to use the title “King of England” (as opposed to “King of the English”).

    Eleanor of  Aquitaine

    Eleanor succeeded her father as suo jure Duchess of Aquitaine and Countess of Poitiers at the age of fifteen, and thus became the most eligible bride in Europe. Three months after her accession she married Louis VII, son and junior co-ruler of her guardian, King Louis VI. As Queen of the Franks, she participated in the unsuccessful Second Crusade. Soon after the Crusade was over, Louis VII and Eleanor agreed to dissolve their marriage, because of Eleanor’s own desire for divorce and also because the only children they had were two daughters – Marie and Alix. The royal marriage was annulled on 11 March 1152, on the grounds of consanguinity within the fourth degree. Their daughters were declared legitimate and custody of them awarded to Louis, while Eleanor’s lands were restored to her.

    As soon as she arrived in Poitiers, Eleanor became engaged to the eleven years younger Henry II, Duke of the Normans, her cousin within the third degree. On 18 May 1152, eight weeks after the annulment of her first marriage, Eleanor

    Eleanor of Aquitaine

    married the Duke of the Normans. On 25 October 1154 her husband ascended the throne of the Kingdom of England, making Eleanor Queen of the English. Over the next thirteen years, she bore Henry eight children: five sons, two of whom would become king, and three daughters. However, Henry and Eleanor eventually became estranged. She was imprisoned between 1173 and 1189 for supporting her son Henry‘s revolt against her husband, King Henry II.

    Eleanor was widowed on 6 July 1189. Her husband was succeeded by their son, Richard the Lionheart, who immediately moved to release his mother. Now queen mother, Eleanor acted as a regent for her son while he went off on the Third Crusade. Eleanor survived her son Richard and lived well into the reign of her youngest son King John. By the time of her death she had outlived all of her children except for King John and Eleanor, Queen of Castile.

    Riding down
    Bur Dubai streets
    3AM prowlin’
    the animals begin to empty from
    their pens howlin’
    I am just a cowboy singing
    a lonesome cattle call

    The sun will be up soon
    work here is done
    discos deflated
    Singing my cattle call

    The wind blows slow
    ’round their slick animal legs
    Cowboys waiting to beg
    With their lonely cattle call

    Marshall tall in the saddle
    just call him Al Cid
    spurring his horse herding
    painted creatures unhid
    Lost in the cattle call

    Night wind blows up
    Coughing dust in the heat
    Feelin’ no lust
    more a need to retreat
    Whispered like a cattle call

    (No yodeling)

    Value has a different meaning

    Posted: February 21, 2010 in Poetry

    It’s an unremarkable day
    As on any other day
    with bulging wallets
    Dubai’s neatly trimmed
    walk the streets

    dreams packaged in glittering gold and sparkling
    hues of red,
    green,
    blue,
    pink,
    purple

    Dancing on the tip of a km high needle
    value reaches the zenith of abstraction

    Me, I keep my own treasure house
    and drink milk tea before bathing and getting dressed

    The First Cut

    Posted: February 20, 2010 in Poetry

    Blade rubbing against soft clean flesh
    I can do this
    the first

    cut

    Easy when you think about it
    Victory
    a red ribbon trailing
    down

    maybe just words
    maybe just thoughts
    fragments

    I warm to this idea

    Blog Entry of a Serial Killer #1

    Posted: February 19, 2010 in Poetry

    Does anything matter?
    My mother is crying

    She tried to raise a good son
    Hurt and confused

    All pain forgotten
    right now

    I feel for the starving children and families in the world,
    others say, that’s too bad, but I can’t
    do anything

    Feelings,
    demons that make sure
    I’d never be able to do that

    I am working on an encrypted journal
    very un-crackable, PGP

    Where I can speak of being sure
    sure about my thoughts
    sure about nothing
    a good position considering my circumstances
