Never had this one before but seeing as the brewery is just a couple of miles away it would be rude not to. Knight of the Garter golden ale from the Windsor & Eton brewery. Very, very nice. Great hoppy light coloured ale that's not too strong and a pleasant bitter, limey aftertaste.3.8 ABV. #realale #windsorandetonbrewery #knightofthegarter #goldenale #hoppy #ale #hops #windsorand #maidenhead
#OTD 29th September 1558 George Brooke, 9th Baron Cobham died. He acted as Lieutenant-General in1544 when English forces invaded Scotland, and was made Deputy of Calais in June 1544. He was created a Knight of the Garter in 1549, and served on King Edward VI's Privy Council.

“We must look into ourselves, into the depths of our souls. We must become something we have never been and for which our education and experience and environment have illprepared us. We must become bigger than we have been, more courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook. We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice, owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community.” #knightofthegarter #giveustheteachingsofhismajesty #HaileSelassie #HaileSelassieI #SelassieI #LijTafariMakonnen #Tafari #RasTafari #Qedamawi #QedamawiHaileSelassie #ElectofGod #Negus #IlectofHIMself #NegusNegast #Janhoy #Amlak #Selah #KingSelassieI #LightoftheWorld #IyesusKristos #Jah #JahAlmighty #KingSelassie #LionofJudah #ElectofGod #ConqueringLionoftheTribeofJudah
“He who would efface the sacred work of Almighty God, he who would abuse the mysteries of God’s creation and discriminate between man and man whom God created equal, on the basis of colour, race, or creed, calls down upon himself disaster and ruin.” #knightofthegarter #giveustheteachingsofhismajesty #HaileSelassie #HaileSelassieI #SelassieI #LijTafariMakonnen #Tafari #RasTafari #Qedamawi #QedamawiHaileSelassie #ElectofGod #Negus #IlectofHIMself #NegusNegast #Janhoy #Amlak #Selah #KingSelassieI #LightoftheWorld #IyesusKristos #Jah #JahAlmighty #KingSelassie #LionofJudah #ElectofGod #ConqueringLionoftheTribeofJudah
“For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also. The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land. O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.” Psalms 95.3-7 #knightofthegarter #giveustheteachingsofhismajesty #HaileSelassie #HaileSelassieI #SelassieI #LijTafariMakonnen #Tafari #RasTafari #Qedamawi #QedamawiHaileSelassie #ElectofGod #Negus #IlectofHIMself #NegusNegast #Janhoy #Amlak #Selah #KingSelassieI #LightoftheWorld #IyesusKristos #Jah #JahAlmighty #KingSelassie #LionofJudah #ElectofGod #ConqueringLionoftheTribeofJudah

“Another basic element of Ethiopian Christian culture is the Holiness Of The Virgin Maryam, from whom Christ took the flesh being One with her. She is the female type of “priestly” human perfection, mother of God and partner of the Lord in his redemptive work. Without any sin, she was assumed in heaven in her body and soul, sitting at the right hand of Christ upon the Celestial Throne Of he Divinity. This event is celebrated to Ethiopian tradition on August 22 (Nahasse 16).” #NegusMesih #KingMessiah #knightofthegarter #giveustheteachingsofhismajesty #HaileSelassie #HaileSelassieI #SelassieI #LijTafariMakonnen #Tafari #RasTafari #Qedamawi #QedamawiHaileSelassie #ElectofGod #Negus #IlectofHIMself #NegusNegast #Janhoy #Amlak #Selah #KingSelassieI #LightoftheWorld #IyesusKristos #Jah #JahAlmighty #KingSelassie #LionofJudah #ElectofGod #ConqueringLionoftheTribeofJudah

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” Psalms 1 #knightofthegarter #giveustheteachingsofhismajesty #HaileSelassie #HaileSelassieI #SelassieI #LijTafariMakonnen #Tafari #RasTafari #Qedamawi #QedamawiHaileSelassie #ElectofGod #Negus #IlectofHIMself #NegusNegast #Janhoy #Amlak #Selah #KingSelassieI #LightoftheWorld #IyesusKristos #Jah #JahAlmighty #KingSelassie #LionofJudah #ElectofGod #ConqueringLionoftheTribeofJudah

The life and times of Edward of Woodstock known as the Black Prince.

Edward of Woodstock known as the Black Prince. Charismatic and strong military leader, whose victories over the French during the battle of Poitiers and Crecy made him a national hero for some time. Knighted for Crecy by his father Edward III. The tomb is decorated with a bronze sculpture representing Edward. His life was summarised by the epitaph on his tomb, which he had stated in his will. Thou, who silent passest by, Where this corpse interr’d doth lie Hear what to thee I now shall show, Words that from Experience flow: As thou art, once the world saw me; As I am, so thou once shalt be. I little could my death divine, When Life’s bright Lamp did sweetly shine; Vast wealth did o’er my Coffers flow, Which I as freely did bestow; Great Store of Mansions I did hold, Land, Wardrobes, Horses, Silver, Gold. But now I am all bereft, And deep in Ground alone am left: My once admir’d Beauty’s gone, My flesh is wasted to the Bone. A narrow House doth me contain, All that I speak is true and plain; And, if you should behold me here, You’d hardly think (I justly fear) That e’er the World to me, did bow, I am so chang’d and alter’d now. For God’s sake, pray to Heaven’s high King To shade my Soul with Mercy’s Wing, All those that try on bended knee To reconcile my God and me God place them in his Paradise Where neither Death can be, nor Vice. #canterburycathedral #edwardofwoodstock #blackprince #14thcentury #1376 #knightofthegarter #orderofthegarter #royal #thekingthatneverwas #epitaph #crecy #poitiers #charismatic #chivlary #canterbury #kent #thethreefeathers #tombstone #englishknight #capturingbritain #largerthanlife #history #historic #historical #mystery #sculpture #medieval #effigy

Wingfield, St. Andrew, Suffolk. John de la Pole, second Duke of Suffolk and his wife Elizabeth Plantagenet, sister of Edward IV. Detail showing the Duke resting on a Saracens head. John was the son of the famous political meddler William de la Pole. But unlike his father, John spent much of his life flying under political radar. Although allied through marriage to the House of York, John avoided the battles that led to Edward IV gaining the throne, instead he involved himself in local feuds with the Paston family. He did take part in the later battles at Barnet and Tewkesbury, but after retired again to his Suffolk estates. He avoided conflict with Henry VII even though his son, the Earl of Lincoln tried to seize the throne. He eventually died in 1492 and was commemorated with this magnificent tomb complete with armour, robes, coronet and Order of the Garter. #wingfieldchurch #suffolk #suffolkchurches #churches #churchesofinstagram #churchcrawling #architecture #architecturalphotography #medieval #medievalarchitecture #gothicarchitecture #delapole #warsoftheroses #henryv #medievaltomb #heraldry #plantagenet #plantagenets #houseofyork #houseoflancaster #orderofthegarter #dukeofsuffolk #coronet #knightofthegarter #knightinshiningarmour

Curious about the needlework stools we posted about last week? The stools are each stamped ‘F’ beneath a closed crown (indicating a royal) on the underside of the seat rales. The cypher is that of HRH Prince Frederick Lewis, Prince of Wales, KG, the eldest son of George II—shown here in a painting by Charles Philips.

Crediton, Holy Cross, Devon. The tomb of Sir John de Sully KG, and his wife Isobel. John was born in 1282, and had a long and distinguished military career. He was known as the 'hero of a hundred battles' and was present at Edward III's campaigns in Scotland in 1333. He also fought in many battles in the Hundred Years War, including Crécy and Poitiers. He fought with the Black Prince in Gascony, and also found time to go crusading in the Holy Land. He was appointed a Knight of the Garter by Edward III in 1362. At the end of his life, he gave evidence at the Scrope v Grosvenor case, at which his age was given as 105! He probably died a year later in 1388. #creditonchurch #devonchurch #hundredyearswar #medievalsculpture #medieval #churches #churchcrawling #tomb #crusaders #crusader #battleofcrécy #knightofthegarter

** Thomas Boleyn, Earl of Wiltshire and father of Mary, George and Queen Anne Boleyn and maternal grandfather of Queen Elizabeth I, died #onthisday - March 12 - in 1539 at Hever Castle. . . His servant Robert Cranwell wrote to Thomas Cromwell, “My good lord and master is dead. He made the end of a good Christian man. Hever, 13 March.” . . History has not been kind to Thomas Boleyn, he has often been portrayed as a cruel man who pimped out his daughters to the King. . . Yet there is no evidence for this, and I would like to share this brilliant article by Claire Ridgway of The Anne Boleyn Files "In Defence of Thomas Boleyn", which states how Thomas career was already going strong long before King Henry VIII showed an interest in his daughters. . . In fact, there is evidence that Thomas was not entirely happy with Anne’s relationship with the King. . . I think contemporary evidence shows us that Thomas was a highly intelligent, religious, Renaissance man, who simply wanted to give his children the best chance in life. . . Pictured is the fine brass tomb of Thomas Boleyn from my visit to Hever last October. Thomas is depicted in the robes of a Knight of the Order of the Garter. Above his right shoulder is the Boleyn family crest - the Falcon. . . Beside his grave is the grave of his son Henry, who died in infancy. . . https://www.theanneboleynfiles.com/in-defence-of-thomas-boleyn-father-of-anne-boleyn/
Here at Seal & Scribe, we swoon over a great coat of arms, so it's no wonder our heart skipped a beat when we saw this historic gem! Enjoy~ . #Repost @clairemiles86 ・・・ This rather impressive coat of arms comes from the drawing room of Hamilton Palace, the ancestral seat of the Dukes of Hamilton near Glasgow. You've probably never heard of it as it was condemned for demolition by 1921, but inside its magnificent walls lived treasures to rival the Royal Collection. - #sealandscribe , #englishart , #englishantiques , #familycrest #hamiltonpalace #glasgow #coatofarms #heraldry #knightofthegarter #nationalmuseumofscotland #edinburgh #edinburghcity #visitedinburgh #visitscotland #scotland #scottishhistory #history
In an English garden with Pink Floyd ummagumma David Gilmour and his black strat purchased at Manny's in NYC in May 1970 here on his Astoria house boat recording studio the garden being his Garrick's Lawn and the guitar being a Fender Custom Shop reproduction of his erstwhile iconic axe. David's harmonic sensibility combined with his vocal and his guitar idiomatic was the perfect counterpoint to Roger Waters libretto dismemberment of their shared but differentiated parental abandonment angst, a conflict fought at Abbey Road Studios 3 & 2 which resulted in 250m album sales and a career managed by producers as conductors and mediated by lawyers and fiscal fiduciary advisers to the Queen of England.

I'm thrilled to be giving a talk on Robert Dudley's Armour at the Lord Leycester Hospital in Warwick on the 18th January 2018. Notably, this spectacular armour is emblazoned with many of the heraldic motifs relating to notorious Earls of Warwick. The event is a part of a new series of 'Smart-Talks' held at the historic building in the centre of the town, for more info and how to buy tickets head to the Lord Leycester's website. @lordleycesterhospital #lordleycesterhospital #RobertDudley #ElizabethI #SirRobertDudley #ArmsandArmour #Armour #Steel #tudor #sixteenthcentury #RaggedStaff #Warwick #Warwickshire #EarlofWarwick #EarlofLeicester #history #talk #lecture #Bling #fashion #mensfashion #royalarmouries #garter #knightofthegarter #medieval #knight

This rather impressive coat of arms comes from the drawing room of Hamilton Palace, the ancestral seat of the Dukes of Hamilton near Glasgow. You've probably never heard of it as it was condemned for demolition by 1921, but inside its magnificent walls lived treasures to rival the Royal Collection. - The Drawing Room was restored and ‘improved’ by the 10th Duke, who added a very impressive, large black marble chimneypiece and his arms as a Knight of the Garter. - Alexander Hamilton , 10th Duke of Hamilton (1767-1852), based on contemporary accounts sounded like a bit of a twat - He was termed 'The proudest man in Britain' by his peers and was a renowned dandy, as well as believing himself to be the true heir to the Scottish throne. What do you expect from a man whose nickname was 'El Magnifico'? - In recognition of his own importance, it was his intention to build a mausoleum grand enough to be "the eighth wonder of world" as a fitting tribute to him. His coffin was the sarcophagus of an Egyptian princess, which had been purchased by the Duke for £11,000, an absolute bloody fortune at the time. - Unfortunately, when the old boy kicked the bucket, it became apparent that there was a considerable difference in height between the Duke and princess. The only way that they could fit him into the available space was to cut his legs off at the knees! - - - #hamiltonpalace #dukesofhamilton #hamilton #glasgow #drawingroom #coatofarms #heraldry #knightofthegarter #carving #woodencarving #duke #elmagnifico #nationalmuseumscotland #nationalmuseumofscotland #edinburgh #edinburghcity #visitedinburgh #visitscotland #scotland #scottishhistory #history #historygeek #historyandhighheels #historyinhighheels
The tomb of Sir William Parr (d.1483), Holy Trinity Church, Kendal. The Parrs originally came to Kendal through the marriage to an heiress of the de Ros family, who held part of the lordship of the town. Throughout the Wars of the Roses, the Parrs were closely linked with the Nevilles. The Earl of Salisbury had been granted the position of Steward of Kendal, after which the Nevilles and the Parrs attempted to assert their lordship more forcefully in Kendal. They were involved in a protracted legal battle with Margaret Beaufort over who held the rights to the barony. Sir William remained loyal to the Earl of Warwick until the latter rebelled against Edward IV for a second time in 1470 and was forced to flee for France. William Parr soon became a close friend of Edward, and was made a knight of the garter (you can see the garter symbol surrounding the coat of arms on his tomb) in 1474. He was invited to be a canopy bearer at the coronation of Richard III, but refused to attend and shortly after returned to Kendal where he died and was buried. ♔♔♔ #medieval #middleages #WarsoftheRoses #SirWilliam #Parr #knightofthegarter #garter #EdwardIV #Warwick #RichardIII #Kendal #Westmorland #Cumbria #England #Britain #HolyTrinity #church #chapel #tomb #heraldry #coatofarms #history #heritage

Although made in Northern Italy, this armor came from the armory of the Earls of Pembroke at Wilton House in Wiltshire. It was probably made for Sir William Herbert, First Earl of Pembroke (1501-1570), soldier and courtier in the service of the French King King Francis I, and subsequently three English monarchs: Henry VIII, Edward VI, and Mary - he was described as "of good naturall parts, but very colericque" and as a "mad fighting fellow" ... .

On This Day In History . 15 June 1519 . Henry Fitzroy, 1st Duke of Richmond & Somerset was born . . About Henry ; . ◾ Henry FitzRoy, 1st Duke of Richmond and Somerset was the son of King Henry VIII of England & his mistress, Elizabeth Blount, & the only illegitimate offspring whom Henry VIII acknowledged. . ◼ He was the younger half-brother of Mary I, future Queen of England (daughter of Katharine of Aragon), as well as the older half-brother of the future Queen, Elizabeth I (daughter of Anne Boleyn) & King, Edward VI (son of Jane Seymour). . ◼ Henry was given the surname FitzRoy to make sure that all knew he was son of the King (FitzRoy is an Anglo-Norman name originally meaning "son of the king".) . ◼ At the of age 14, on 28 November 1533 the Duke married Lady Mary Howard, the only daughter of Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk. Thomas Howard was an uncle of two of the wives of Henry VIII: Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard, . ◼ On 18 June 1525 Henry knelt before his father, & as the patent was read he was invested with the trappings of a duke. When he rose to his feet he was Duke of Richmond & Somerset. . ◼ To support his new status, Henry granted his young son an annuity of £4,845. Following the ceremony, what took place was a “great feasts & disguising”. Henry wished to celebrate his six-year-old son with customary extravagance. . ◼ Richmond was made Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland. . ◼ The Duke's promising career came to an abrupt end in July of 1536. He was reported ill with "consumption" (usually identified as tuberculosis, but possibly another serious lung complaint) in early July, & died at St. James's Palace on 23 July 1536. . ◼ The Duke's ornate tomb is in Framlingham Church, Suffolk. One of the houses at the local high school is named after him. . ◼ His father outlived him by just over a decade, & was succeeded by his legitimate son Edward, born shortly after Fitzroy's death. Most historians maintain that Edward, like Henry Fitzroy, died of tuberculosis. . . . #OnThisDayInHistory #Thisdayinhistory #TheYear1519 #d15jun #henryfitzroy #DukeofRichmond #DukeofSomerset #KnightoftheGarter #HenryVIIIofengland #HenryVIII #KingHenryVIII

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY 8 June 1376 . Edward, the Black Prince died aged 45 . . Why the Black Prince ? . ◼ Although Edward is often referred to as the "Black Prince", there is no record of this name being used during his lifetime, nor for more than 150 years after his death. He was instead known as Edward of Woodstock (after his place of birth), or by one of his titles. . . ◼ The "Black Prince" sobriquet is first found in writing in two manuscript notes made by the antiquary John Leland in the 1530s or early 1540s: in one, Leland refers in English to "the blake prince"; in the other, he refers in Latin to "Edwardi Principis cog: Nigri". . ◼ The name's earliest known appearance in print is in Richard Grafton's Chronicle at Large (1569): Grafton uses it on three occasions, saying that "some writers name him the black prince", and (elsewhere) that he was "commonly called the black Prince". . ◼ It is used by Shakespeare, in his plays Richard II (written c.1595) and Henry V (c.1599). It later appears prominently in the title of Joshua Barnes's The History of that Most Victorious Monarch, Edward IIId, King of England and France, and Lord of Ireland, and First Founder of the Most Noble Order of the Garter: Being a Full and Exact Account Of the Life and Death of the said King: Together with That of his Most Renowned Son, Edward, Prince of Wales and of Aquitain, Sirnamed the Black-Prince (1688). . . The origins of the name are uncertain, though many theories have been proposed., such as; . ⬛ that it is derived from Edward's black shield, and/or his black armour. . ⬛  his brutal reputation on the battlefield . ⬛ wearing his black armour, he was described in French as clad at the battle of Crecy "en armure noire en fer bruni" – in black armour of burnished steel" . . . #OnThisDayInHistory #ThisDayInHistory #TheYear1376 #PrinceEdward #TheBlackPrince #EdwardTheBlackPrince #EdwardofWoodstock #HouseofPlantagenet #Plantagenet # #KnightoftheGarter #DukeofCornwall #PrinceofWales #PrinceofAquitaine #History #EnglishMonarchy #BritishMonarchy #d8jun
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY . 8 June 1376 . Edward, the Black Prince, eldest son of King Edward III died aged 45 . . ◼ Edward died at Westminster Palace. He requested to be buried in the crypt of Canterbury Cathedral rather than next to the shrine, & a chapel was prepared there as a chantry for him & his wife Joan, Countess of Kent. (This is now the French Protestant Chapel, & contains ceiling bosses of her face & of their coats of arms.) . ▪ However, this was overruled after his death & he was buried on the south side of the shrine of Thomas Becket behind the quire. His tomb consists of a bronze effigy beneath a tester depicting the Holy Trinity, with his heraldic achievements hung over the tester. The achievements have now been replaced by replicas, though the originals can still be seen nearby. The tester was restored in 2006. . . ◼ Epitaph inscribed around his effigy; . Such as thou art, sometime was I. . Such as I am, such shalt thou be. . I thought little on th'our of Death . So long as I enjoyed breath. . On earth I had great riches . Land, houses, great treasure, horses, money and gold. . But now a wretched captive am I, . Deep in the ground, lo here I lie. . My beauty great, is all quite gone, . My flesh is wasted to the bone. .. . . . #OnThisDayInHistory #ThisDayInHistory #TheYear1376 #d8jun #PrinceEdward #TheBlackPrince #EdwardTheBlackPrince #EdwardofWoodstock #HouseofPlantagenet #Plantagenet #KnightoftheGarter #DukeofCornwall #PrinceofWales #PrinceofAquitaine #History #EnglishMonarchy #BritishMonarchy

This here is King Edward III of England, Founder of the Most Noble Saint George Order of the Garter. 🇬🇬 The Order of the Garter is Britain’s highest order of Chivalry awarded by the Monarch to fellow Knights of the realm but it also has been used with the functional tradition of honouring fellow international monarchs. Interestingly Chivalry, and in particular Knighthoods of this kind can be traced back to an invention of the Moors of North Africa, as was highlighted in the 19th Century by french literary historian Emile Theodore Leon Gautier. Also both King Edward III and his son Prince Edward ”The Black Prince” have been rumored in part of the hidden history of Britain to have been of African "Moor" heritage themselves. The oldest portraits from the Garter Book of 1430 and who exactly the artist may have been painting are fascinating to examine from this perspective. 🌍 New Blog Post : St George http://wp.me/p8hNGd-gr 💚💛❤ #hiddenhistory #SaintGeorge #KingEdwardIII #Rastafari #Investigation #Historicaloracle #Africa #HaileSelassieI #KnightoftheGarter #Ethiopia #England #halfthestoryhasneverbeentold

@Regrann from @philip_mould_gallery - This detail is taken from our late 16th-century portrait of Ambrose Dudley, Earl of Warwick (c.1530-1590) who, following a disastrous attempt to establish Lady Jane Grey as queen, was imprisoned in the tower of London accused of treason and sentenced to death. Although he was pardoned, he was treated with suspicion until the ascension of Elizabeth I, who made him a Knight of the Garter in in 1563. #dudley #knightofthegarter #portrait #ladyjanegrey #elizabethi #16thcentury #treason #warwick #detail - #regrann
