to be suffered that the young king, their master 2, 14/ 23

by his office and the King's favor. These two 2, 15/ 31
as hatred both unto the Queen's party -- in 2, 15/ 32
point accorded together with the Duke of Gloucester: that 2, 16/ 1
would utterly remove from the King's company all his 2, 16/ 2
his mother's friends, under the name of their enemies 2, 16/ 3
enemies. Upon this concluded, the Duke of Gloucester, understanding 2, 16/ 4
of Gloucester, understanding that the lords which at that 2, 16/ 4
that time were about the King intended to bring 2, 16/ 5
purpose to pass without the gathering and great assembly 2, 16/ 8
open war -- whereof the end, he wist, was 2, 16/ 9
doubtful, and in which, the King being on their 2, 16/ 9
his part should have the face and name of 2, 16/ 10
by divers means, caused the Queen to be persuaded 2, 16/ 11
persuaded and brought in the mind that it neither 2, 16/ 12
also should be jeopardous, the King to come up 2, 16/ 13
studied upon but about the coronation and honor of 2, 16/ 15
coronation and honor of the King, if the lords 2, 16/ 15
of the King, if the lords of her kindred 2, 16/ 15
kindred should assemble in the King's name much people 2, 16/ 16
people, they should give the lords atwixt whom and 2, 16/ 17
this people, not for the King's safeguard -- whom 2, 16/ 19
they should assemble on the other part much people 2, 16/ 22
And thus should all the realm fall on a 2, 16/ 24
roar. And of all the hurt that thereof should 2, 16/ 24

King; and over that, the Duke of Gloucester himself 2, 17/ 3
himself and other lords, the chief of his band 2, 17/ 3

so reverently, and to the Queen's friends there so 2, 17/ 4
nothing earthly mistrusting, brought the King up in great 2, 17/ 6
sober company. Now was the King in his way 2, 17/ 7
thither. Where remained behind the Lord Rivers, the King's 2, 17/ 12

between these dukes and the Lord Rivers, a great 2, 17/ 16
great courtesy departed, and the Lord Rivers lodged, the 2, 17/ 18
the Lord Rivers lodged, the dukes secretly with a 2, 17/ 20
a great part of the night. And at their 2, 17/ 22
at their rising in the dawning of the day 2, 17/ 23
in the dawning of the day, they sent about 2, 17/ 23
attendant, when many of the Lord Rivers' servants were 2, 17/ 27
also into their custody the keys of the inn 2, 17/ 29
custody the keys of the inn, that none should 2, 17/ 29
And over this, in the highway toward Stony Stratford 2, 17/ 30
toward Stony Stratford, where the King lay, they had 2, 18/ 1
other license; forasmuch as the dukes themselves intended, for 2, 18/ 5
dukes themselves intended, for the show of their diligence 2, 18/ 5
their diligence, to be the first that should that 2, 18/ 6
that day attend upon the King's Highness out of 2, 18/ 7
in hand. But when the Lord Rivers understood the 2, 18/ 8
the Lord Rivers understood the gates closed and the 2, 18/ 8
the gates closed and the ways on every side 2, 18/ 9
-- he determined, upon the surety of his own 2, 18/ 17
to set distance between the King and them, and 2, 18/ 20
himself, they tarried not the end of his answer 2, 18/ 23
to horseback and took the way to Stony Stratford 2, 18/ 27
-- where they found the King with his company 2, 18/ 27
about them. To whom the Duke of Buckingham said 2, 19/ 1
array they came to the King, and on their 2, 19/ 3
picked a quarrel to the Lord Richard Grey, the 2, 19/ 7
the Lord Richard Grey, the King's other brother by 2, 19/ 8
saying that he, with the Lord Marquis his brother 2, 19/ 9
Marquis his brother and the Lord Rivers his uncle 2, 19/ 10
had compassed to rule the King and the realm 2, 19/ 10
rule the King and the realm, and to set 2, 19/ 11
to set variance among the states, and to subdue 2, 19/ 11
to subdue and destroy the noble blood of the 2, 19/ 12
the noble blood of the realm. Toward the accomplishing 2, 19/ 12
of the realm. Toward the accomplishing whereof, they said 2, 19/ 13
whereof, they said that the Lord Marquis had entered 2, 19/ 13
Marquis had entered into the Tower of London and 2, 19/ 14
and thence taken out the King's treasure, and sent 2, 19/ 14
and sent men to the sea. All which things 2, 19/ 15
purposes and necessary, by the whole Council at London 2, 19/ 16
say. Unto which words the King answered, "What my 2, 19/ 18
Yea, my liege," quoth the Duke of Buckingham, "they 2, 19/ 21
these matters far from the knowledge of your good 2, 19/ 23
And forthwith they arrested the Lord Richard and Sir 2, 19/ 24
Thomas Vaughan, knight, in the King's presence, and brought 2, 19/ 24
King's presence, and brought the King and all back 2, 19/ 29
they sent away from the King whom it pleased 2, 19/ 31
not. And at dinner the Duke of Gloucester sent 2, 20/ 3
his own table to the Lord Rivers, praying him 2, 20/ 4
enough. And he thanked the Duke, and prayed the 2, 20/ 5
the Duke, and prayed the messenger to bear it 2, 20/ 5
it to his nephew the Lord Richard, with the 2, 20/ 6
the Lord Richard, with the same message for his 2, 20/ 6
therefore could bear it the better. But for all 2, 20/ 9
this comfortable courtesy of the Duke of Gloucester, he 2, 20/ 10
of Gloucester, he sent the Lord Rivers and the 2, 20/ 11
the Lord Rivers and the Lord Richard, with Sir 2, 20/ 11
Sir Thomas Vaughan, into the north country into divers 2, 20/ 12

Gloucester took upon himself the order and governance of 2, 20/ 15
order and governance of the young king, whom with 2, 20/ 16
he conveyed upward toward the city. But anon the 2, 20/ 17

matter came hastily to the Queen, a little before 2, 20/ 18
Queen, a little before the midnight following, and that 2, 20/ 18
following, and that in the sorest wise: that the 2, 20/ 19
the sorest wise: that the King her son was 2, 20/ 19
what. With which tidings the Queen in great flight 2, 20/ 26
her own infortune, damning the time that ever she 2, 20/ 27
that ever she dissuaded the gathering of power about 2, 20/ 28
gathering of power about the King, got herself in 2, 20/ 28
got herself in all the haste possible, with her 2, 20/ 29
her daughters, out of the Palace of Westminster, in 2, 20/ 30
she then lay, into the sanctuary, lodging herself and 2, 21/ 1
her company there in the abbot's place. Now came 2, 21/ 2
long after midnight, from the Lord Chamberlain unto the 2, 21/ 4
the Lord Chamberlain unto the Archbishop of York (then 2, 21/ 4
were gone back with the King's Grace from Stony 2, 21/ 10
I assure him," quoth the Archbishop, "be it as 2, 21/ 14
by and by after the messenger departed, he caused 2, 21/ 15
he caused in all the haste all his servants 2, 21/ 16

yet before day, unto the Queen. About whom he 2, 21/ 19
more, some breaking down the walls to bring in 2, 21/ 24
walls to bring in the next way -- and 2, 21/ 24
carry a wrong way. The Queen herself sat alone 2, 21/ 25
sat alone, alow on the rushes, all desolate and 2, 21/ 26
desolate and dismayed, whom the Archbishop comforted in the 2, 21/ 29
the Archbishop comforted in the best manner he could 2, 21/ 29
her that he trusted the matter was nothing so 2, 21/ 30
out of fear by the message sent him from 2, 22/ 3

them, we shall on the morrow crown his brother 2, 22/ 7
you. And here is the Great Seal, which in 2, 22/ 9
it unto you, to the use and behoof of 2, 22/ 11
therewith he betook her the Great Seal, and departed 2, 22/ 12
home again, yet in the dawning of the day 2, 22/ 12
in the dawning of the day. By which time 2, 22/ 13

full of boats of the Duke of Gloucester's servants 2, 22/ 14
about as specially in the city, the people diversely 2, 22/ 17
specially in the city, the people diversely divining upon 2, 22/ 17
either for favor of the Queen or for fear 2, 22/ 19
not so specially against the other lords as against 2, 22/ 25
other lords as against the King himself, in the 2, 22/ 26
the King himself, in the disturbance of his coronation 2, 22/ 26
then, by and by, the lords assembled together at 2, 22/ 27
London. Toward which meeting, the Archbishop of York -- 2, 22/ 28
suddenly had yielded up the Great Seal to the 2, 22/ 30
the Great Seal to the Queen, to whom the 2, 22/ 30
the Queen, to whom the custody thereof nothing pertained 2, 22/ 31
without especial commandment of the King -- secretly sent 2, 22/ 32
-- secretly sent for the Seal again, and brought 2, 22/ 32
it with him after the customable manner. And at 2, 23/ 1
And at this meeting the Lord Hastings, whose troth 2, 23/ 2
Hastings, whose troth toward the King no man doubted 2, 23/ 3
needed to doubt, persuaded the lords to believe that 2, 23/ 4
lords to believe that the Duke of Gloucester was 2, 23/ 4
his prince, and that the Lord Rivers and Lord 2, 23/ 5
and Lord Richard, with the other knights, were, for 2, 23/ 6
attempted by them against the dukes of Gloucester and 2, 23/ 7
their surety, not for the King's jeopardy; and that 2, 23/ 10
should remain than till the matter were, not by 2, 23/ 12
matter were, not by the dukes only, but also 2, 23/ 12
but also by all the other lords of the 2, 23/ 13
the other lords of the King's Council, indifferently examined 2, 23/ 13
that they judged not the matter too far forth 2, 23/ 16
forth, ere they knew the truth; nor, turning their 2, 23/ 16
their private grudges into the common hurt, irritating and 2, 23/ 17
unto anger and disturbing the King's coronation, toward which 2, 23/ 18
King's coronation, toward which the dukes were coming up 2, 23/ 19
they might peradventure bring the matter so far out 2, 23/ 20
things equal, yet should the authority be on that 2, 23/ 23
on that side where the King is himself. With 2, 23/ 24
With these persuasions of the Lord Hastings (whereof part 2, 23/ 25
of part he wist the contrary), these commotions were 2, 23/ 26
especially by that that the dukes of Gloucester and 2, 23/ 27
so shortly on with the King, in none other 2, 23/ 29
his coronation -- causing the fame to be blown 2, 23/ 30
were taken had contrived the destruction of the dukes 2, 23/ 32

of the realm, to the end that themselves would 2, 24/ 1
alone demean and govern the King at their pleasure 2, 24/ 2
their pleasure. And for the colorable proof thereof, such 2, 24/ 3
proof thereof, such of the dukes' servants as rode 2, 24/ 3
servants as rode with the carts of their stuff 2, 24/ 4
were harnesses, which at the breaking up of that 2, 24/ 6
away), they showed unto the people all the way 2, 24/ 8

albeit that it made the matter to wise men 2, 24/ 11
unlikely (well perceiving that the intenders of such a 2, 24/ 12
yet much part of the common people were therewith 2, 24/ 14
to hang them. When the King approached near to 2, 24/ 16
King approached near to the city, Edmund Shaa, goldsmith 2, 24/ 16
Mathew, sheriffs, and all the other aldermen in scarlet 2, 24/ 18

thence, accompanied him into the city, which he entered 2, 24/ 20
city, which he entered the fourth day of May 2, 24/ 21
fourth day of May, the first and last year 2, 24/ 22
of his reign. But the Duke of Gloucester bore 2, 24/ 23
sight so reverently to the Prince, with all semblance 2, 24/ 24
of lowliness, that from the great obloquy in which 2, 24/ 25
great trust that at the Council next assembled, he 2, 24/ 26
assembled, he was made the only man chosen, and 2, 24/ 27
to be Protector of the King and his realm 2, 24/ 29
or were it folly, the lamb was betaken to 2, 24/ 30
lamb was betaken to the wolf to keep. At 2, 24/ 30
At which Council also, the Archbishop of York, Chancellor 2, 25/ 1
which had delivered up the Great Seal to the 2, 25/ 2
the Great Seal to the Queen, was thereof greatly 2, 25/ 3
thereof greatly reproved, and the seal taken from him 2, 25/ 3
experience, and one of the best-learned men, undoubtedly, that 2, 25/ 7
appointed unto divers rooms. The Lord Chamberlain and some 2, 25/ 9
were it so that the Protector so sore thirsted 2, 25/ 11
so sore thirsted for the finishing of that he 2, 25/ 11
that if he deposed the one brother, all the 2, 25/ 14
the one brother, all the realm would fall to 2, 25/ 15
realm would fall to the other, if he either 2, 25/ 15
liberty. Wherefore, incontinent, at the next meeting of the 2, 25/ 17
the next meeting of the lords at the Council 2, 25/ 18
of the lords at the Council he proposed unto 2, 25/ 18
an heinous deed of the Queen, and proceeding of 2, 25/ 20
of great malice toward the King's Councillors, that she 2, 25/ 21
should keep in sanctuary the King's brother from him 2, 25/ 22
but to bring all the lords in obloquy and 2, 25/ 28
obloquy and murmur of the people -- as though 2, 25/ 29
to be trusted with the King's brother that by 2, 25/ 30
King's brother that by the assent of the nobles 2, 25/ 30
by the assent of the nobles of the land 2, 25/ 30
of the nobles of the land were appointed, as 2, 25/ 31
land were appointed, as the King's nearest friends, to 2, 25/ 31
King's nearest friends, to the tuition of his own 2, 25/ 31
his own royal person. "The prosperity whereof standeth," quoth 2, 26/ 6
tender youth take in the company of ancient persons 2, 26/ 9
ancient persons, but in the familiar conversation of those 2, 26/ 10
man thinketh that loveth the King), let him consider 2, 26/ 14
it redoundeth greatly to the dishonor both of the 2, 26/ 16
the dishonor both of the King's Highness and of 2, 26/ 17
walk far) -- that the King's brother should be 2, 26/ 20
worst to send unto the Queen, for the redress 2, 26/ 25
unto the Queen, for the redress of this matter 2, 26/ 26
such as both tendereth the King's weal and the 2, 26/ 27
the King's weal and the honor of his Council 2, 26/ 27
please him to take the pain. Which I doubt 2, 26/ 32
will not refuse, for the King's sake and ours 2, 27/ 1
ours, and wealth of the young duke himself, the 2, 27/ 1
the young duke himself, the King's most honorable brother 2, 27/ 2
thereby shall be ceased the slanderous rumor and obloquy 2, 27/ 4
obloquy now going, and the hurts avoided that thereof 2, 27/ 5
quiet grow to all the realm. And if she 2, 27/ 6
by mine advice, by the King's authority fetch him 2, 27/ 9
honorably treated that all the world shall, to our 2, 27/ 12
lordships anything perceive to the contrary. For never shall 2, 27/ 16
your better advices." When the Protector had said, all 2, 27/ 19
Protector had said, all the Council affirmed that the 2, 27/ 19
the Council affirmed that the motion was good and 2, 27/ 20
and reasonable, and to the King and the duke 2, 27/ 20
to the King and the duke his brother honorable 2, 27/ 20
cease great murmur in the realm, if the mother 2, 27/ 22
in the realm, if the mother might be by 2, 27/ 22
deliver him. Which thing the Archbishop of York, whom 2, 27/ 23
others as were of the spiritualty present, that it 2, 27/ 28
that should turn to the great grudge of all 2, 27/ 30
displeasure of God, if the privilege of that holy 2, 27/ 31
dedicated to God (for the proof whereof they have 2, 28/ 5
they have yet in the abbey Saint Peter's cope 2, 28/ 5
consecrate. "And therefore," quoth the Archbishop of York, "God 2, 28/ 9
earthly, enterprise to break the immunity and liberty of 2, 28/ 11
sanctuary, that hath been the safeguard of so many 2, 28/ 12
of my devoir, but the mother's dread and womanish 2, 28/ 18
womanish fear shall be the let." "Womanish fear? Nay 2, 28/ 19
Nay, womanish frowardness!" quoth the Duke of Buckingham. "For 2, 28/ 20
Would God some of the men of her kin 2, 28/ 23
none of her kin the less loved for that 2, 28/ 25
that we should hate the King's noble brother, to 2, 28/ 28
to suffer him from the King as any of 2, 28/ 32
if she refuse in the deliverance of him to 2, 29/ 9
of him to follow the counsel of them whose 2, 29/ 9
fear her own shadow? The more she feareth to 2, 29/ 13
feareth to deliver him, the more ought we fear 2, 29/ 14
so great a mischief, the sanctuary would little let 2, 29/ 22
him somewhere out of the realm? Verily, I look 2, 29/ 27
mindeth it as we the let thereof. And if 2, 29/ 28
letting her alone), all the world would say that 2, 29/ 30
therefor. For verily, since the privileges of that place 2, 30/ 3
that such men as the sea or their evil 2, 30/ 8
their bodies out of the danger of their cruel 2, 30/ 10
creditors. And also, if the crown happen (as it 2, 30/ 11
which never fall from the craft after they once 2, 30/ 15
thereto, it is pity the sanctuary should serve them 2, 30/ 16
bade to take from the altar and kill them 2, 30/ 18
there need we not the sanctuaries that God appointed 2, 30/ 19
that God appointed in the Old Law. For if 2, 30/ 20
pardon serveth, which either the law granteth of course 2, 30/ 22
granteth of course or the king of pity may 2, 30/ 22
And then see, on the other side, what a 2, 30/ 26
in two places especially: the one at the elbow 2, 30/ 29
especially: the one at the elbow of the city 2, 30/ 29
at the elbow of the city, the other in 2, 30/ 30
elbow of the city, the other in the very 2, 30/ 30
city, the other in the very bowels. I dare 2, 30/ 30
well avow it: weigh the good that they do 2, 30/ 31
that they do with the hurt that cometh of 2, 30/ 31
set their hands to the amendment -- as though 2, 31/ 4
and Saint Peter were the patrons of ungracious living 2, 31/ 5
run in debt, upon the boldness of these places 2, 31/ 8
only a safeguard for the harm they have done 2, 31/ 16
and no breach of the privilege. The residue, since 2, 31/ 19
breach of the privilege. The residue, since so long 2, 31/ 20
to let us of the fetching forth of this 2, 31/ 25
serveth always to defend the body of that man 2, 31/ 28
take hurt, that liberty the king, the law, and 2, 32/ 4
that liberty the king, the law, and very nature 2, 32/ 4
-- there needeth he the tuition of some special 2, 32/ 7
special privilege; which is the only ground and cause 2, 32/ 8
whose innocence, to all the world his tender youth 2, 32/ 10
goods, why should not the king, leaving his body 2, 32/ 23
body at liberty, satisfy the party of his goods 2, 32/ 23
his goods even within the sanctuary? For neither king 2, 32/ 24
with that, divers of the clergy that were present 2, 32/ 27
agreed plainly that by the law of God and 2, 32/ 28
of God and of the Church, the goods of 2, 32/ 29
and of the Church, the goods of a sanctuary 2, 32/ 29
and stolen goods to the owner, and only liberty 2, 32/ 30
get his living with the labor of his hands 2, 32/ 31
his hands. "Verily," quoth the Duke, "I think you 2, 32/ 32
Saint Peter's church by the arm. And if nobody 2, 33/ 2
yet is there at the leastwise some fear. And 2, 33/ 7
And therefore, as for the conclusion of my mind 2, 33/ 10
breaketh no sanctuary." When the Duke had done, the 2, 33/ 20
the Duke had done, the temporal men whole, and 2, 33/ 20
and good part of the spiritual also, thinking none 2, 33/ 21
hurt earthly meant toward the young babe, condescended in 2, 33/ 22
it all best, in the voiding of all manner 2, 33/ 24
manner of rumor, that the Lord Cardinal should first 2, 33/ 24
will. And thereupon all the Council came unto the 2, 33/ 26
the Council came unto the Star Chamber at Westminster 2, 33/ 26
Chamber at Westminster. And the Lord Cardinal, leaving the 2, 33/ 27
the Lord Cardinal, leaving the Protector with the Council 2, 33/ 27
leaving the Protector with the Council in the Star 2, 33/ 27
with the Council in the Star Chamber, departed into 2, 33/ 27
Star Chamber, departed into the sanctuary to the Queen 2, 33/ 28
into the sanctuary to the Queen, with divers other 2, 33/ 28
-- were it for the respect of his honor 2, 33/ 29
were it for that the Protector intended not in 2, 33/ 31
wise serve her. When the Queen and these lords 2, 34/ 6
come together in presence, the Lord Cardinal showed unto 2, 34/ 7
it was thought unto the Protector and unto the 2, 34/ 8
the Protector and unto the whole Council that her 2, 34/ 8
that her keeping of the King's brother in that 2, 34/ 9
in that place was the thing which highly sounded 2, 34/ 9
sounded, not only to the great rumor of the 2, 34/ 10
the great rumor of the people, and their obloquy 2, 34/ 10
obloquy, but also to the importable grief and displeasure 2, 34/ 11
grief and displeasure of the King's royal majesty. To 2, 34/ 11
sanctuary -- as though the one brother stood in 2, 34/ 15
danger and peril of the other! And he showed 2, 34/ 15
he showed her that the Council therefore had sent 2, 34/ 16
her to require her the delivery of him, that 2, 34/ 17
might be brought unto the King's presence -- at 2, 34/ 18
do great good to the realm, pleasure to the 2, 34/ 21
the realm, pleasure to the Council, and profit to 2, 34/ 21
comfort and honor to the King but also to 2, 34/ 24
King but also to the young duke himself, whose 2, 34/ 24
and recreation; which thing the lord esteemed not slight 2, 34/ 26
nor any stranger for the convenience of their both 2, 34/ 29
other. "My lord," quoth the Queen, "I say not 2, 34/ 31

in the company of the King, his brother. And 2, 35/ 2

forwearied, and weaked, waxeth the less able to bear 2, 35/ 13
denieth, good madam," quoth the Cardinal, "but that Your 2, 35/ 18

yet more convenient that the Duke of York were 2, 35/ 23

the Queen. "And yet the case is not like 2, 35/ 33
is not like; for the one was then in 2, 35/ 33
then in health, and the other is now sick 2, 35/ 33

made a countenance to the other lord that he 2, 36/ 32
then said he to the Queen that he nothing 2, 36/ 33
under arrest should, upon the matter examined, do well 2, 37/ 1
I trust that?" quoth the Queen. "In that I 2, 37/ 3
near of kin to the King? And how far 2, 37/ 6
this maketh me much the more farther to deliver 2, 37/ 11
madam," quoth he, "and the farther that you be 2, 37/ 12
be to deliver him, the farther be other men 2, 37/ 13
lord his uncle, for the tender love he beareth 2, 37/ 19
away." "Ah, sir," quoth the Queen, "hath the Protector 2, 37/ 21
quoth the Queen, "hath the Protector so tender zeal 2, 37/ 21
which neither is in the plight to send out 2, 37/ 24

would no longer dispute the matter. But if she 2, 40/ 12
were content to deliver the Duke to him and 2, 40/ 13
to him and to the other lords there present 2, 40/ 13
a resolute answer to the contrary, he would forthwith 2, 40/ 16
could nothing perceive what the Protector intended; troth, if 2, 40/ 21
they should perceive toward the child any evil intended 2, 40/ 23

And forasmuch her seemed the Cardinal more ready to 2, 40/ 25
depart than some of the remnant, and the Protector 2, 40/ 26
of the remnant, and the Protector himself ready at 2, 40/ 26
And over that, of the Cardinal's faith she nothing 2, 41/ 7
should yet make them the more warily to look 2, 41/ 10
look to him, and the more circumspectly to see 2, 41/ 11
of trust. And at the last she took the 2, 41/ 12
the last she took the young duke by the 2, 41/ 13
the young duke by the hand, and said unto 2, 41/ 13
hand, and said unto the lords: "My lord," quoth 2, 41/ 13

was privy to all the Protector's counsel even from 2, 42/ 29
Protector's counsel even from the beginning, and some of 2, 42/ 30
beginning, and some of the Protector's friends said that 2, 42/ 31

when he had imprisoned the Queen's kinsfolk, and gotten 2, 43/ 4
hands, then he opened the rest of his purpose 2, 43/ 6
he thought meet for the matter, and especially to 2, 43/ 7
matter, and especially to the Duke -- who being 2, 43/ 7
more than half increased. The matter was broken unto 2, 43/ 9

he least suspected. For the state of things and 2, 43/ 26
state of things and the dispositions of men were 2, 43/ 26
suchlike, being beaten into the Duke's mind, brought him 2, 43/ 28
where he had repented the way that he had 2, 43/ 30
he go forth in the same; and since he 2, 43/ 30
and determined that since the common mischief could not 2, 43/ 33
it was agreed that the Protector should have the 2, 44/ 1

But the Protector and the Duke, after that that 2, 44/ 15
that they had set the Lord Cardinal, the Archbishop 2, 44/ 16

trust showed unto Catesby the mistrust that others began 2, 46/ 18
began to have in the matter. And therefore he 2, 46/ 18
their motions might with the Lord Hastings diminish his 2, 46/ 19

many lords assembled in the Tower and there sat 2, 46/ 29

King's coronation, of which the time appointed then so 2, 46/ 30
so near approached that the pageants and subtleties were 2, 46/ 31

first about nine of the clock, saluting them courteously 2, 47/ 3
them, he said unto the Bishop of Ely, "My 2, 47/ 6

a mess of strawberries. The Protector set the lords 2, 47/ 10
strawberries. The Protector set the lords fast in communing 2, 47/ 10

At this question all the lords sat sore astonished 2, 47/ 24
wist himself clear. Then the Lord Chamberlain, as he 2, 47/ 26
as he that for the love between them thought 2, 47/ 26
they were. And all the others affirmed the same 2, 47/ 29
all the others affirmed the same. "That is," quoth 2, 47/ 29
others with her," meaning the Queen. At these words 2, 47/ 30
these words many of the other lords were greatly 2, 47/ 31
that favored her. But the Lord Hastings was in 2, 47/ 31
as he was of the taking of her kindred 2, 48/ 3
devised that himself should the same day be beheaded 2, 48/ 6
at London. Then said the Protector, "Ye shall all 2, 48/ 6
well they wist that the Queen was too wise 2, 48/ 14
as that concubine whom the King, her husband, had 2, 48/ 17
since his birth. Nevertheless, the Lord Chamberlain (which from 2, 48/ 19

or do rise in the night's rest by reason 2, 50/ 12

but an enemious scorn. The same morning, ere he 2, 51/ 1
to accompany him to the Council, but of truth 2, 51/ 2
of truth sent by the Protector to hasten him 2, 51/ 2
knight, when it happed the Lord Chamberlain by the 2, 51/ 5
the Lord Chamberlain by the way to stay his 2, 51/ 5
whom he met in the Tower street, broke his 2, 51/ 7
But so little wist the other what he meant 2, 51/ 10
anything pass me than the vain surety of man's 2, 51/ 13
near his death. Upon the very Tower wharf, so 2, 51/ 14
Tower wharf, so near the place where his head 2, 51/ 14

At which other time the Lord Chamberlain had been 2, 51/ 19
unto King Edward by the Lord Rivers, the Queen's 2, 51/ 20
by the Lord Rivers, the Queen's brother, in such 2, 51/ 20
that he was for the while (but it lasted 2, 51/ 21
long) far fallen into the King's indignation, and stood 2, 51/ 22
met this pursuivant in the same place, that jeopardy 2, 51/ 29
before talked thereof in the same place while he 2, 52/ 1
That meant he by the lords of the Queen's 2, 52/ 6
by the lords of the Queen's kindred that were 2, 52/ 6
but nothing aware that the axe hung over his 2, 52/ 8
here. And lo how the world is turned: now 2, 52/ 11
stand mine enemies in the danger (as thou mayest 2, 52/ 11
surety." O good God, the blindness of our mortal 2, 52/ 13
too much. Now flew the fame of this lord's 2, 52/ 23
lord's death swiftly through the city, and so forth 2, 52/ 23
every man's ear. But the Protector immediately after dinner 2, 52/ 24
set some color upon the matter, sent in all 2, 52/ 26
matter, sent in all the haste for many substantial 2, 52/ 26
substantial men out of the city into the Tower 2, 52/ 26
of the city into the Tower; and at their 2, 52/ 27
their coming, himself, with the Duke of Buckingham, stood 2, 52/ 27
constrained them. And then the Protector showed them that 2, 52/ 31
Protector showed them that the Lord Chamberlain and others 2, 52/ 31
suddenly destroyed him and the Duke there, the same 2, 53/ 1
and the Duke there, the same day, in the 2, 53/ 2
the same day, in the Council. And what they 2, 53/ 2
knowledge before ten of the clock that same forenoon 2, 53/ 4
God helped them that the mischief turned upon them 2, 53/ 6
though no man mistrusted the matter which of truth 2, 53/ 9
man believed. Yet for the further appeasing of the 2, 53/ 10
the further appeasing of the people's mind, he sent 2, 53/ 10
after dinner, in all the haste, one herald of 2, 53/ 11
to be made through the city in the King's 2, 53/ 12
through the city in the King's name, containing that 2, 53/ 13
King's name, containing that the Lord Hastings with divers 2, 53/ 14
purpose had before conspired the same day to have 2, 53/ 16
day to have slain the Lord Protector and the 2, 53/ 16
the Lord Protector and the Duke of Buckingham sitting 2, 53/ 16
of Buckingham sitting in the Council, and after to 2, 53/ 17

rule the King and the realm at their pleasure 2, 53/ 18
matter was there in the proclamation devised to the 2, 53/ 20
the proclamation devised to the slander of the Lord 2, 53/ 20
to the slander of the Lord Chamberlain, as that 2, 53/ 20
an evil counselor to the King's father, enticing him 2, 53/ 21
things highly redounding to the diminishing of his honor 2, 53/ 22
his honor and to the universal hurt of his 2, 53/ 22
other things as in the vicious living and inordinate 2, 53/ 24
lay nightly, and namely the night last past, next 2, 53/ 27
so that it was the less marvel if ungracious 2, 53/ 28
now put unto by the most dread commandment of 2, 53/ 30
most dread commandment of the King's Highness and of 2, 53/ 30
treason, and also lest the delaying of his execution 2, 53/ 32
death politicly repressed, all the realm should by God's 2, 54/ 2
prepared before. For all the time between his death 2, 54/ 7
between his death and the proclaiming could scant have 2, 54/ 7
scant have sufficed unto the bare writing alone, all 2, 54/ 8
adventure. So that upon the proclaiming thereof, one that 2, 54/ 9

the Protector sent into the house of Shore's wife 2, 54/ 14
she had -- above the value of two or 2, 54/ 17
laid unto her, for the manner sake, that she 2, 54/ 18
was of counsel with the Lord Chamberlain to destroy 2, 54/ 19
heinously to her charge the thing that herself could 2, 54/ 21
not deny, that all the world wist was true 2, 54/ 22
this vicious world for the amendment of men's manners 2, 54/ 26
manners -- he caused the bishop of London to 2, 54/ 26
open penance: going before the cross in procession upon 2, 54/ 27
and lovely, namely while the wondering of the people 2, 54/ 32
while the wondering of the people cast a comely 2, 54/ 32
when they considered that the Protector procured it more 2, 55/ 5
longed. Which was haply the thing that the more 2, 55/ 12
haply the thing that the more easily made her 2, 55/ 12
made her incline unto the King's appetite when he 2, 55/ 13
he required her. Howbeit, the respect of his royalty 2, 55/ 14
of his royalty -- the hope of gay apparel 2, 55/ 15
tender heart. But when the King had abused her 2, 55/ 17
to him altogether. When the King died, the Lord 2, 55/ 20
When the King died, the Lord Chamberlain took her 2, 55/ 20
took her; which in the King's days, albeit he 2, 55/ 21
though men should guess the beauty of one long 2, 55/ 29
scalp taken out of the charnel house. For now 2, 55/ 30
and not without disport. The King would say that 2, 56/ 5
properties diversely excelled: one the merriest, another the wiliest 2, 56/ 7
one the merriest, another the wiliest, the third the 2, 56/ 8

the wiliest, the third the holiest harlot in his 2, 56/ 8
could get out of the church lightly to any 2, 56/ 9
were to his bed. The other two were somewhat 2, 56/ 10
nameless and to forbear the praise of those properties 2, 56/ 11
of those properties. But the merriest was this Shore's 2, 56/ 12
Shore's wife, in whom the King therefore took special 2, 56/ 13
whose favor, to say the truth (for sin it 2, 56/ 14
it were to belie the devil), she never abused 2, 56/ 14
comfort and relief. Where the King took displeasure, she 2, 56/ 16
she was content with the deed itself well done 2, 56/ 22
able to do with the King, or for that 2, 56/ 23
of and set among the remembrances of great matters 2, 56/ 28
see her. But meseemeth the chance so much the 2, 56/ 30
the chance so much the more worthy to be 2, 56/ 30
she is now in the more beggarly condition, unfriended 2, 56/ 31

and his council that the self day in which 2, 57/ 15

and too nigh to the Queen. Now, when the 2, 58/ 2

while the lords of the realm were about him 2, 58/ 6

But now was all the study by what means 2, 58/ 10
be first broken to the people in such wise 2, 58/ 12
highly desirous) should frame the city to their appetite 2, 58/ 19
were in authority among the people for opinion of 2, 58/ 20
-- cleric, brother to the Mayor -- and Friar 2, 58/ 23
Friar Penker, Provincial of the Augustinian friars; both doctors 2, 58/ 23
before greatly esteemed among the people; but after that 2, 58/ 26
never. Of these two, the one had a sermon 2, 58/ 27
sermon in praise of the Protector before the coronation 2, 58/ 27
of the Protector before the coronation, the other after 2, 58/ 27
Protector before the coronation, the other after; both so 2, 59/ 1
and come down in the midst. Doctor Shaa by 2, 59/ 3
for very shame of the world, into which he 2, 59/ 6
after come abroad. But the friar forced for no 2, 59/ 6
so it harmed him the less. Howbeit, some doubt 2, 59/ 7
not of counsel of the matter before the coronation 2, 59/ 8
of the matter before the coronation, but, after the 2, 59/ 9
the coronation, but, after the common manner, fell to 2, 59/ 9
St. Mary's Hospital at the Easter after. But certain 2, 59/ 11
was of counsel in the beginning, so far forth 2, 59/ 12
he should first break the matter, in a sermon 2, 59/ 13
which he should by the authority of his preaching 2, 59/ 14
of his preaching incline the people to the Protector's 2, 59/ 14
incline the people to the Protector's ghostly purpose. But 2, 59/ 14
But now was all the labor and study in 2, 59/ 15
labor and study in the devise of some convenient 2, 59/ 15
convenient pretext for which the people should be content 2, 59/ 16
be content to depose the Prince and accept the 2, 59/ 17
the Prince and accept the Protector for king. In 2, 59/ 17
things they devised. But the chief thing and the 2, 59/ 18
the chief thing and the weighty of all that 2, 59/ 18
seem disabled to inherit the crown by the Duke 2, 59/ 21
inherit the crown by the Duke of York, and 2, 59/ 21
Duke of York, and the Prince by him. To 2, 59/ 21
Edward sounded openly to the rebuke of the Protector's 2, 59/ 24
to the rebuke of the Protector's own mother, which 2, 59/ 25
and directly, but that the matter should be touched 2, 59/ 30
point to speak all the truth, for fear of 2, 59/ 31
of his displeasure. But the other point, concerning the 2, 59/ 32
the other point, concerning the bastardy that they devised 2, 59/ 32
declared, and enforced to the uttermost. The color and 2, 59/ 34
enforced to the uttermost. The color and pretext whereof 2, 59/ 34
in peaceable possession of the realm, determining himself to 2, 60/ 3
for himself and for the realm), he sent over 2, 60/ 5
sent over in embassage the Earl of Warwick, with 2, 60/ 5
between King Edward and the king's daughter of Spain 2, 60/ 8
Spain. In which thing the Earl of Warwick found 2, 60/ 9
Earl of Warwick found the parties so toward and 2, 60/ 9
without any difficulty, brought the matter to very good 2, 60/ 11
happed it that in the mean season there came 2, 60/ 12
suit by petition to the King, Dame Elizabeth Grey 2, 60/ 13
Bedford ere she married the Lord Woodville, her father 2, 60/ 16
Henry made knight upon the field that he had 2, 60/ 21
for he was at the same field slain. After 2, 60/ 23
After which done, and the Earl of Warwick being 2, 60/ 24
in his embassage about the fore-remembered marriage, this poor 2, 60/ 25
made humble suit unto the King that she might 2, 60/ 29
in jointure. Whom when the King beheld and heard 2, 61/ 5
promises, she well espied the King's affection toward her 2, 61/ 19
that she durst somewhat the more boldly say her 2, 61/ 21
to be his concubine. The King, much marveling of 2, 61/ 25
set her virtue in the stead of possession and 2, 61/ 27
to say nay. Notwithstanding, the Duchess of York, his 2, 61/ 35
therewith that she dissuaded the marriage as much as 2, 62/ 1
to his estate by the affinity, and great possibility 2, 62/ 4
otherwise do, standing that the Earl of Warwick had 2, 62/ 6
marriage many more commend the maiden's fortune than the 2, 62/ 13
the maiden's fortune than the master's wisdom. And yet 2, 62/ 13
great difference as between the king and this widow 2, 62/ 16
and maidens also; whereas the only widowhood of Elizabeth 2, 62/ 23
high disparagement -- to the sacred majesty of a 2, 62/ 27
in his first marriage." The King, when his mother 2, 63/ 1
to be made for the respect of God, where 2, 63/ 6
where his grace inclineth the parties to love together 2, 63/ 7
in his, than for the regard of any temporal 2, 63/ 8
unprofitable. For he reckoned the amity of no earthly 2, 63/ 10
necessary for him as the friendship of his own 2, 63/ 11
bear him so much the more hearty favor in 2, 63/ 12
requisite, he would find the means to enter thereinto 2, 63/ 16
his kin, where all the parties could be contented 2, 63/ 17
never love, and for the possibility of more possessions 2, 63/ 18
of more possessions lose the fruit and pleasure of 2, 63/ 19
bound to marry by the appointment of a guardian 2, 64/ 1
strange lands, is often the occasion of more trouble 2, 64/ 4
you. And as for the bigamy, let the bishop 2, 64/ 17
for the bigamy, let the bishop hardily lay it 2, 64/ 17
was forbidden a prince." The Duchess with these words 2, 64/ 19
nothing appeased, and seeing the King so set thereon 2, 64/ 20
Dame Elizabeth Lucy, whom the King had also, not 2, 64/ 24
gotten with child. Wherefore the King's mother objected openly 2, 64/ 27
of her conscience, that the King was sure to 2, 64/ 28
obstacle was made in the matter that either the 2, 64/ 30
the matter that either the bishops durst not, or 2, 64/ 30
bishops durst not, or the King would not, proceed 2, 64/ 31
would not, proceed to the solemnization of this wedding 2, 64/ 31
were clearly purged and the truth well and openly 2, 64/ 32
that she was by the King's mother and many 2, 64/ 34
she was ensured unto the King, yet when she 2, 65/ 1
solemnly sworn to say the truth, she confessed that 2, 65/ 2
there was none impediment, the King with great feast 2, 65/ 8
her boon. But when the Earl of Warwick understood 2, 65/ 13
a great puissance against the King, and came so 2, 65/ 15
was fain to void the realm and flee into 2, 65/ 17
Where he remained for the space of two years 2, 65/ 23
was delivered of Edward, the prince of whom we 2, 65/ 25
spoken. In which meantime the Earl of Warwick took 2, 65/ 26
and that muchwhat by the power of the Earl 2, 65/ 29
by the power of the Earl of Warwick, which 2, 65/ 29
and favor with all the people, that he made 2, 65/ 31

Easter Day field slew the Earl of Warwick with 2, 66/ 3
and so stably attained the crown again that he 2, 66/ 5

about this marriage somewhat the more at length because 2, 66/ 9
because it might thereby the better appear upon how 2, 66/ 10
how slippery a ground the Protector built his color 2, 66/ 11

Paul's Cross signify to the people that neither King 2, 66/ 18
King Edward himself nor the Duke of Clarence were 2, 66/ 18

by other persons by the adultery of the Duchess 2, 66/ 21
by the adultery of the Duchess, their mother. And 2, 66/ 21
Elizabeth Lucy was verily the wife of King Edward 2, 66/ 22
King Edward, and so the Prince and all his 2, 66/ 22
that were begotten upon the Queen. According to this 2, 66/ 23
this device, Doctor Shaa the Sunday after at Paul's 2, 66/ 25
when he had shown the great grace that God 2, 66/ 29
in right generation after the laws of matrimony, then 2, 66/ 30
that grace, and for the punishment of their parents 2, 66/ 31
their parents were for the more part unhappy, which 2, 66/ 32
which though some, by the ignorance of the world 2, 66/ 34
by the ignorance of the world and the truth 2, 66/ 34
of the world and the truth hid from knowledge 2, 66/ 34

truth coming to light, the rightful inheritors be restored 2, 67/ 3
inheritors be restored and the bastard slip pulled up 2, 67/ 4
he had laid for the proof and confirmation of 2, 67/ 5
examples taken out of the Old Testament and other 2, 67/ 7
he to descend into the praise of the Lord 2, 67/ 8
into the praise of the Lord Richard, late Duke 2, 67/ 8
calling him "father to the Lord Protector," and declared 2, 67/ 9
Lord Protector," and declared the title of his heirs 2, 67/ 9
of his heirs unto the crown, to whom it 2, 67/ 10
whom it was, after the death of King Henry 2, 67/ 10
lawfully begotten, was only the Lord Protector. For he 2, 67/ 12
never lawfully married unto the Queen, but was before 2, 67/ 14
King Edward himself nor the Duke of Clarence among 2, 67/ 23
that were secret in the household were reckoned very 2, 67/ 24
reckoned very surely for the children of the noble 2, 67/ 24
for the children of the noble duke, as those 2, 67/ 24
was far off. But the Lord Protector, he said 2, 67/ 27
princely behavior as in the lineaments and favor of 2, 67/ 29
of his visage" represented "the very face of the 2, 67/ 30
the very face of the noble duke his father 2, 67/ 30
This is," quoth he, "the father's own figure; this 2, 67/ 30
is his own countenance, the very print of his 2, 67/ 31
print of his visage, the sure, undoubted image, the 2, 67/ 31
the sure, undoubted image, the plain, express likeness of 2, 67/ 32
before devised that in the speaking of these words 2, 67/ 33

to the sermonward, to the end that those words 2, 68/ 2
have been taken among the hearers as though the 2, 68/ 3
the hearers as though the Holy Ghost had put 2, 68/ 3
had put them in the preacher's mouth, and should 2, 68/ 4
and should have moved the people even there to 2, 68/ 4
device quailed, either by the Protector's negligence or the 2, 68/ 7
the Protector's negligence or the preacher's overmuch diligence. For 2, 68/ 7
overmuch diligence. For while the Protector found by the 2, 68/ 8
the Protector found by the way tarrying lest he 2, 68/ 8
prevent those words, and the Doctor, fearing that he 2, 68/ 9
into other matters ere the Protector came. Whom when 2, 68/ 12
coming, he suddenly left the matter with which he 2, 68/ 13
words again: "This is the very noble prince, the 2, 68/ 15
the very noble prince, the special pattern of knightly 2, 68/ 15
princely behavior as in the lineaments and favor of 2, 68/ 16
of his visage representeth the very face of the 2, 68/ 17
the very face of the noble duke of York 2, 68/ 17
his father. This is the father's own figure, this 2, 68/ 18
this his own countenance, the very print of his 2, 68/ 19
print of his visage, the sure, undoubted image, the 2, 68/ 19
the sure, undoubted image, the plain, express likeness of 2, 68/ 19
plain, express likeness of the noble duke, whose remembrance 2, 68/ 20
words were in speaking, the Protector, accompanied with the 2, 68/ 21
the Protector, accompanied with the Duke of Buckingham, went 2, 68/ 22
of Buckingham, went through the people into the place 2, 68/ 22
through the people into the place where the doctors 2, 68/ 23
into the place where the doctors commonly stand, in 2, 68/ 23
doctors commonly stand, in the upper story, where he 2, 68/ 23
he stood to hearken the sermon. But the people 2, 68/ 24
hearken the sermon. But the people were so far 2, 68/ 24
After which once ended, the preacher got him home 2, 68/ 26
his old friend what the people talked of him 2, 68/ 30
no good, yet when the other answered him that 2, 68/ 32
so struck him to the heart that, within few 2, 68/ 33
consumed away. Then on the Tuesday following this sermon 2, 69/ 1
sermon, there came unto the Guildhall in London the 2, 69/ 2
the Guildhall in London the Duke of Buckingham, accompanied 2, 69/ 2
more than haply knew the message that they brought 2, 69/ 4
And there -- in the east end of the 2, 69/ 4
the east end of the hall (where the Mayor 2, 69/ 5
of the hall (where the Mayor keepeth the hustings 2, 69/ 5
where the Mayor keepeth the hustings), the Mayor and 2, 69/ 5
Mayor keepeth the hustings), the Mayor and all the 2, 69/ 5
the Mayor and all the aldermen being assembled about 2, 69/ 6
assembled about him, all the commons of the city 2, 69/ 6
all the commons of the city gathered before them 2, 69/ 6
upon great pain) in the Protector's name, the Duke 2, 69/ 8
in the Protector's name, the Duke stood up, and 2, 69/ 8
well-spoken) he said unto the people, with a clear 2, 69/ 10
of wise: "Friends, for the zeal and hearty favor 2, 69/ 11
and profitable to all the realm; nor to no 2, 69/ 15
to no part of the realm more profitable than 2, 69/ 15
profitable than to you, the citizens of this noble 2, 69/ 16
thing is that? Certes, the surety of your own 2, 69/ 20
of your own bodies, the quiet of your wives 2, 69/ 21
wives and your daughters, the safeguard of your goods 2, 69/ 22
benevolence and good will," the commissioners so much of 2, 69/ 32
have given. As though the name of "benevolence" had 2, 70/ 1
to grant, but what the King of his good 2, 70/ 3
everything was hawsed above the measure: amercements turned into 2, 70/ 5
haste cruelly beheaded, by the misconstruing of the laws 2, 70/ 15
by the misconstruing of the laws of this realm 2, 70/ 15
of this realm for the prince's pleasure; with no 2, 70/ 15
that judgment, than to the dishonesty of those that 2, 70/ 18
to favor him whom the prince favored not! We 2, 70/ 27
a pretext. For since the King, preventing the time 2, 71/ 2
since the King, preventing the time of his inheritance 2, 71/ 3
of his inheritance, attained the crown by battle, it 2, 71/ 3
were at any time the King's enemies; which was 2, 71/ 6
other, more than half the realm. Thus were neither 2, 71/ 7
in jeopardy -- besides the common adventure of open 2, 71/ 9
that it is ever the well and occasion of 2, 71/ 10
so many battles in the season, nor so cruel 2, 71/ 14
fought, as was in the king's days that dead 2, 71/ 15
whose occasion, what about the getting of the garland 2, 71/ 16
about the getting of the garland, keeping it, losing 2, 71/ 16
blood than hath twice the winning of France. In 2, 71/ 18
so great effusion of the ancient noble blood of 2, 71/ 20
this realm that scarcely the half remaineth, to the 2, 71/ 21
the half remaineth, to the great enfeebling of this 2, 71/ 21

strumpet, than to all the lords in England -- 2, 71/ 32
well-named and honest till the King for his wanton 2, 72/ 1
all men know -- the King's greedy appetite was 2, 72/ 5
and everywhere over all the realm intolerable. For no 2, 72/ 6
murmur or grudge of the world, he would importunately 2, 72/ 10
and have her; to the great destruction of many 2, 72/ 11
themselves, so much regard the cleanness of their house 2, 72/ 14
cleanness of their house, the chastity of their wives 2, 72/ 14
and other importable dealing the realm was in every 2, 72/ 17
yet especially ye here, the citizens of this noble 2, 72/ 18
And yet be ye the people whom he had 2, 72/ 21
not only for that the prince by this noble 2, 72/ 23
his special chamber and the specially well-renowned city of 2, 72/ 25
kind minds borne to the house of York -- 2, 72/ 29
to show you is the whole sum and effect 2, 72/ 31
as great authority as the preacher's of the word 2, 73/ 4
as the preacher's of the word of God, namely 2, 73/ 4
he would not say the thing which he wist 2, 73/ 7
should not say, in the pulpit namely, into which 2, 73/ 7

right and title that the most excellent prince Richard 2, 73/ 10
this realm, hath unto the crown and kingdom of 2, 73/ 12

made open unto you, the children of King Edward 2, 73/ 15
children of King Edward the Fourth were never lawfully 2, 73/ 15
lawfully begotten, forasmuch as the King (living his very 2, 73/ 16

matched with his, and the mingling of whose bloods 2, 73/ 19
bloods together hath been the effusion of great part 2, 73/ 20
of great part of the noble blood of this 2, 73/ 21
of other things (which the said worshipful doctor rather 2, 73/ 23
spoken for me, as the thing wherein every man 2, 73/ 25
a filial reverence to the Duchess, his mother); for 2, 73/ 27
issue lawfully coming of the late noble prince Richard 2, 73/ 30
to whose royal blood the crown of England and 2, 73/ 31

after bear so much the more tender favor, in 2, 74/ 31
he shall perceive you the more prone and benevolently 2, 74/ 32
to show us." When the Duke had said -- 2, 74/ 34
-- and looked that the people, whom he hoped 2, 75/ 1
people, whom he hoped the Mayor had framed before 2, 75/ 1
word answered thereunto. Wherewith the Duke was marvelously abashed 2, 75/ 4
marvelously abashed, and taking the Mayor nearer to him 2, 75/ 5
so still?" "Sir," quoth the Mayor, "percase they perceive 2, 75/ 7
louder, he rehearsed them the same matter again in 2, 75/ 9
there answered of all the people that stood before 2, 75/ 16
was as still as the midnight -- not so 2, 75/ 16
best to do. When the Mayor saw this, he 2, 75/ 18
that counsel drew about the Duke and said that 2, 75/ 19
Duke and said that the people had not been 2, 75/ 19
spoken unto "but by the Recorder, which is the 2, 75/ 20
the Recorder, which is the mouth of the city 2, 75/ 21
is the mouth of the city; and haply to 2, 75/ 21
will answer." With that, the Recorder, called Fitzwilliam, a 2, 75/ 22
never had spoken to the people before -- and 2, 75/ 26
notwithstanding, thereunto commanded by the Mayor, made rehearsal to 2, 75/ 28
Mayor, made rehearsal to the commons of that the 2, 75/ 28
the commons of that the Duke had twice rehearsed 2, 75/ 28
rehearsed them himself. But the Recorder so tempered his 2, 75/ 29
he showed everything as the Duke's words and no 2, 75/ 30
no change made in the people, which always, after 2, 75/ 31
been men amazed. Whereupon the Duke rounded unto the 2, 75/ 32
the Duke rounded unto the Mayor and said, "This 2, 75/ 33
therewith he turned unto the people again, with these 2, 76/ 2
greatly needed but that the lords of this realm 2, 76/ 4
of this realm and the commons of other parts 2, 76/ 4
be minded as all the nobles of the realm 2, 76/ 9
all the nobles of the realm be -- to 2, 76/ 10
not." At these words the people began to whisper 2, 76/ 13
among themselves secretly, that the voice was neither loud 2, 76/ 14
but, as it were, the sound of a swarm 2, 76/ 15
of bees; till at the last, in the nether 2, 76/ 15
at the last, in the nether end of the 2, 76/ 15
the nether end of the hall, an ambushment of 2, 76/ 16

and others belonging to the Protector, with some apprentices 2, 76/ 17
lads that thrust into the hall among the press 2, 76/ 18
into the hall among the press, began suddenly at 2, 76/ 18
they said. And when the Duke and the Mayor 2, 76/ 24
when the Duke and the Mayor saw this manner 2, 76/ 24
nay. "Wherefore, friends," quoth the Duke, "since that we 2, 76/ 28
manner fore-remembered." And therewith the lords came down, and 2, 77/ 1
lords came down, and the company dissolved and departed 2, 77/ 1
company dissolved and departed, the more part all sad 2, 77/ 2
that came thither with the Duke, not able to 2, 77/ 4
turn their face to the wall while the dolor 2, 77/ 5
to the wall while the dolor of their heart 2, 77/ 5

on the morrow after, the Mayor with all the 2, 77/ 7
the Mayor with all the aldermen and chief commoners 2, 77/ 8
and chief commoners of the city, in their best 2, 77/ 9
unto Baynard's Castle, where the Protector lay. To which 2, 77/ 10
according to their appointment, the Duke of Buckingham, with 2, 77/ 12
other gentlemen. And thereupon the Duke sent word unto 2, 77/ 13
Duke sent word unto the Lord Protector of the 2, 77/ 14
the Lord Protector of the being there of a 2, 77/ 14
unto His Grace. Whereupon the Protector made difficulty to 2, 77/ 16
doubted and partly distrusted the coming of such number 2, 77/ 18
good or harm. Then the Duke, when he had 2, 77/ 20
had showed this unto the Mayor and others, that 2, 77/ 20
thereby see how little the Protector looked for this 2, 77/ 21
sent unto him by the messenger such loving message 2, 77/ 22
part disclose, that at the last he came forth 2, 77/ 26
they meant. And thereupon the Duke of Buckingham first 2, 77/ 29
petition unto him, on the behalf of them all 2, 77/ 30
purpose unto His Grace the intent of their coming 2, 77/ 32
as wealth to all the realm besides, yet were 2, 78/ 3
no wise offend. Then the Protector, as he was 2, 78/ 5
liked, verily trusting, for the good mind that he 2, 78/ 7
to be grieved. When the Duke had this leave 2, 78/ 9
and purpose, with all the causes moving them thereunto 2, 78/ 11
goodness and zeal unto the realm, now with his 2, 78/ 13
of pity to behold the long-continued distress and decay 2, 78/ 14
distress and decay of the same and to set 2, 78/ 14
his gracious hands to the redress and amendment thereof 2, 78/ 16
by taking upon him the crown and governance of 2, 78/ 17
unto him, and to the laud of God, profit 2, 78/ 20
of God, profit of the land, and unto His 2, 78/ 21
His Grace so much the more honor and less 2, 78/ 21
under his obeisance as the people of this realm 2, 78/ 23
realm under his. When the Protector had heard the 2, 78/ 24
the Protector had heard the proposition, he looked very 2, 78/ 24
that he partly knew the things by them alleged 2, 78/ 26
other realms about than the crown of any one 2, 78/ 28
all other nations, where the truth were not well-known 2, 78/ 31
and device to depose the Prince and take himself 2, 78/ 33
Prince and take himself the crown. With which infamy 2, 78/ 33
not only pardoned them the motion that they made 2, 79/ 2
also thanked them for the love and hearty favor 2, 79/ 3
to give and bear the same to the Prince 2, 79/ 5
bear the same to the Prince, under whom he 2, 79/ 5
far as should like the King to use him 2, 79/ 6
uttermost devoir to set the realm in good state 2, 79/ 7
while of his protectorship (the praise given to God 2, 79/ 8
well begun, in that the malice of such as 2, 79/ 9
were before occasion of the contrary, and of new 2, 79/ 10
Upon this answer given, the Duke, by the Protector's 2, 79/ 12
given, the Duke, by the Protector's license, a little 2, 79/ 13
about him as with the Mayor and Recorder of 2, 79/ 14
he showed aloud unto the Protector that for a 2, 79/ 15
a final conclusion, that the realm was appointed King 2, 79/ 16
they thought it for the weal universal to take 2, 79/ 19
His Grace to take the crown upon him, they 2, 79/ 21
a resolute answer to the contrary, which they would 2, 79/ 22
These words much moved the Protector, which else, as 2, 79/ 25
it, he said unto the lords and commons: "Since 2, 79/ 28
perceive well that all the realm is so set 2, 79/ 29
is there to whom the crown can by so 2, 79/ 33
heir, lawfully begotten of the body of our most 2, 80/ 1
now joined your election, the nobles and commons of 2, 80/ 3
request, and, according to the same, here we take 2, 80/ 7
we take upon us the royal estate, preeminence, and 2, 80/ 8
preeminence, and kingdom of the two noble realms England 2, 80/ 9
England and France -- the one from this day 2, 80/ 9
rule, govern, and defend; the other, by God's grace 2, 80/ 11
this realm of England, the advancement whereof we never 2, 80/ 15
King Richard!" And then the lords went up to 2, 80/ 17
lords went up to the King (for so was 2, 80/ 18
that time called), and the people departed, talking diversely 2, 80/ 18
departed, talking diversely of the matter, every man as 2, 80/ 19
talked and marveled of the manner of this dealing 2, 80/ 20
of this dealing, that the matter was on both 2, 80/ 21
well enough that all the matter was made between 2, 80/ 24
men must sometimes for the manner sake not be 2, 80/ 26
they know. For at the consecration of a bishop 2, 80/ 27
man wotteth well, by the paying for his bulls 2, 80/ 28
say nay, and at the third time take it 2, 80/ 31
a stage play all the people know right well 2, 81/ 1
that he that playeth the sultan is percase a 2, 81/ 1
worthy, for marring of the play." And so they 2, 81/ 6
plays -- and for the more part played upon 2, 81/ 7
poor men be but the lookers-on. And they that 2, 81/ 8
their parts, they disorder the play and do themselves 2, 81/ 10
do themselves no good. The next day the Protector 2, 81/ 11
good. The next day the Protector, with a great 2, 81/ 11
had placed himself in the Court of the King's 2, 81/ 16
in the Court of the King's Bench, declared to 2, 81/ 16
King's Bench, declared to the audience that he would 2, 81/ 19
would take upon him the crown in that place 2, 81/ 19
place -- there where the king himself sitteth and 2, 81/ 20
himself sitteth and ministreth the law -- because he 2, 81/ 21
considered that it was the chiefest duty of a 2, 81/ 21
a king to minister the laws. Then, with as 2, 81/ 22
to win unto him the nobles, the merchants, the 2, 81/ 23
unto him the nobles, the merchants, the artificers, and 2, 81/ 23
the nobles, the merchants, the artificers, and, in conclusion 2, 81/ 24
men -- but specially the lawyers of this realm 2, 81/ 24
And finally -- to the intent that no man 2, 81/ 25
clemency might get him the good will of the 2, 81/ 27
the good will of the people -- when he 2, 81/ 27
when he had declared the discommodity of discord and 2, 81/ 27
discommodity of discord and the commodities of concord and 2, 81/ 28
against him. And to the intent that he might 2, 81/ 31

in the sight of the people he took him 2, 82/ 1
he took him by the hand. Which thing the 2, 82/ 1

then was he crowned the sixth day of July 2, 82/ 9

the most part with the selfsame provision that was 2, 82/ 10
that was appointed for the coronation of his nephew 2, 82/ 11
mischiefs thick. And as the thing evil gotten is 2, 82/ 13
well kept, through all the time of his reign 2, 82/ 14
finished his time with the best death and the 2, 82/ 16
the best death and the most righteous (that is 2, 82/ 16
so began he with the most piteous and wicked 2, 82/ 17
and wicked: I mean the lamentable murder of his 2, 82/ 18
of his innocent nephews, the young king and his 2, 82/ 18

I shall rehearse you the dolorous end of those 2, 83/ 4
in his new honor the town of which he 2, 83/ 8
of which he bore the name of his old 2, 83/ 9
could have right to the realm, he thought therefore 2, 83/ 12
them -- as though the killing of his kinsmen 2, 83/ 13

and credence also) that the same Sir Robert should 2, 83/ 18
in any wise put the two children to death 2, 83/ 18
before our Lady in the Tower!), who plainly answered 2, 83/ 20
John Green returning, recounted the same to King Richard 2, 83/ 22
displeasure and thought, that the same night he said 2, 83/ 24
do Your Grace pleasure the thing were right hard 2, 83/ 29
had strength and wit. The man had an high 2, 84/ 3
and kept under by the means of Sir Richard 2, 84/ 5
no more partners of the prince's favor -- and 2, 84/ 7
him good that all the enemies he had except 2, 84/ 12
enemies he had except the devil could never have 2, 84/ 12
had he sitting at the draught -- a convenient 2, 84/ 15
and came out into the pallet chamber, on which 2, 84/ 16

nothing strange. Wherefore, on the morrow, he sent him 2, 84/ 21
deliver Sir James all the keys of the Tower 2, 84/ 22
all the keys of the Tower for one night 2, 84/ 23
for one night, to the end he might there 2, 84/ 23
he might there "accomplish the King's pleasure" in such 2, 84/ 23
which letter delivered and the keys received, Sir James 2, 84/ 25
received, Sir James appointed the night next ensuing to 2, 84/ 26
devising before and preparing the means. The Prince, as 2, 84/ 27
and preparing the means. The Prince, as soon as 2, 84/ 27
Prince, as soon as the Protector left that name 2, 84/ 27
his uncle should have the crown. At which word 2, 84/ 29
crown. At which word the Prince, sore abashed, began 2, 85/ 1
he that told him the tale used him with 2, 85/ 3
and put him in the best comfort he could 2, 85/ 4
could. But forthwith was the Prince and his brother 2, 85/ 4
sure. After which time the Prince never tied his 2, 85/ 7
in their beds. To the execution whereof, he appointed 2, 85/ 11
Miles Forest, one of the four that kept them 2, 85/ 12
strong knave. Then, all the others being removed from 2, 85/ 15
John Dighton about midnight, the seely children lying in 2, 85/ 17
their beds, came into the chamber and suddenly lapped 2, 85/ 18
lapped them up among the clothes -- so bewrapped 2, 85/ 18
keeping down by force the featherbed and pillows hard 2, 85/ 19
their innocent souls into the joys of heaven, leaving 2, 85/ 22
of heaven, leaving to the tormentors their bodies dead 2, 85/ 22
their bodies dead in the bed. Which after that 2, 85/ 23

perceived -- first by the struggling with the pains 2, 85/ 24
by the struggling with the pains of death, and 2, 85/ 24
bodies naked out upon the bed, and fetched Sir 2, 85/ 26
see them. Which, upon the sight of them, caused 2, 85/ 27
to bury them at the stair-foot, meetly deep in 2, 85/ 28
stair-foot, meetly deep in the ground, under a great 2, 85/ 29
and showed him all the manner of the murder 2, 86/ 1
all the manner of the murder, who gave him 2, 86/ 2
a king's sons. (Lo the honorable courage of a 2, 86/ 5
Robert Brackenbury took up the bodies again and secretly 2, 86/ 7
such place as, by the occasion of his death 2, 86/ 8
James Tyrell was in the Tower for treason committed 2, 86/ 10
for treason committed against the most famous prince King 2, 86/ 11

above written; but whither the bodies were removed, they 2, 86/ 13
reign and rule in the realm -- by traitorous 2, 86/ 17
God wot where, by the cruel ambition of their 2, 86/ 19
or what mischief worketh the proud enterprise of an 2, 86/ 23
first to begin with the ministers: Miles Forest at 2, 87/ 1

a cur dog. And the mischief that he took 2, 87/ 7
than three years of the mischief that he did 2, 87/ 7
did; and yet all the meantime spent in much 2, 87/ 8

tossed and tumbled with the tedious impression and stormy 2, 87/ 20
hereupon soon after began the conspiracy -- or, rather 2, 87/ 22
good confederation -- between the Duke of Buckingham and 2, 87/ 23
other gentlemen against him. The occasion whereupon the King 2, 87/ 24
him. The occasion whereupon the King and the Duke 2, 87/ 24
whereupon the King and the Duke fell out is 2, 87/ 24
-- as soon as the Duke of Gloucester, upon 2, 88/ 2
Duke of Gloucester, upon the death of King Edward 2, 88/ 2
Edward, sent thither, in the most secret wise he 2, 88/ 4
like secret trust with the Duke of Gloucester, desiring 2, 88/ 6
Gloucester, desiring that in the most close and covert 2, 88/ 6
might be admitted to the presence and speech of 2, 88/ 7
of his master. And the Duke of Gloucester, advertised 2, 88/ 8
desire, caused him in the dead of the night 2, 88/ 9
in the dead of the night, after all other 2, 88/ 9
fellows if need were. The messenger, sent back with 2, 88/ 13
some secret instruction of the Protector's mind, yet met 2, 88/ 14
with farther message from the duke his master, within 2, 88/ 15
at Nottingham -- whither the Protector, from York, with 2, 88/ 16
with many gentlemen of the north country (to the 2, 88/ 17
the north country (to the number of six hundred 2, 88/ 17
departed. Whereupon at Northampton the Duke met with the 2, 89/ 1
the Duke met with the Protector himself, with horses 2, 89/ 1
whence as soon as the Duke came home, he 2, 89/ 4
change grew. And surely the occasion of their variance 2, 89/ 6
I heard say that the Duke, a little before 2, 89/ 8
Duke, a little before the coronation, among other things 2, 89/ 8
other things required of the Protector the Duke of 2, 89/ 9
required of the Protector the Duke of Hereford's lands 2, 89/ 9
inheritor. And forasmuch as the title which he claimed 2, 89/ 10
was somewhat interlaced with the title to the crown 2, 89/ 11
with the title to the crown by the line 2, 89/ 12
to the crown by the line of King Henry 2, 89/ 12
King Henry before deprived, the Protector conceived such indignation 2, 89/ 12
indignation that he rejected the Duke's request with many 2, 89/ 13
far forth that when the Protector rode through London 2, 89/ 16
ride with him. And the other, taking it in 2, 89/ 18
and that notwithstanding, on the morrow rose from the 2, 89/ 21
the morrow rose from the feast feigning himself sick 2, 89/ 21
distrust of other that the Duke verily looked to 2, 89/ 24
some right secret at the days deny this; and 2, 90/ 2
men think it unlikely (the deep dissimulating nature of 2, 90/ 3
in that green world the Protector had of the 2, 90/ 4
the Protector had of the Duke, and in what 2, 90/ 5
and in what peril the Duke stood if he 2, 90/ 5
once in suspicion of the tyrant) that either the 2, 90/ 6
the tyrant) that either the Protector would give the 2, 90/ 6
the Protector would give the Duke occasion of displeasure 2, 90/ 6
occasion of displeasure, or the Duke the Protector occasion 2, 90/ 7
displeasure, or the Duke the Protector occasion of mistrust 2, 90/ 7
Very truth it is, the Duke was an high-minded 2, 90/ 9
and evil could bear the glory of another; so 2, 90/ 10
they saw it, that the Duke, at such time 2, 90/ 11
at such time as the crown was first set 2, 90/ 12
was first set upon the Protector's head, his eye 2, 90/ 12
eye could not abide the sight thereof, but wried 2, 90/ 13
nor any demand of the Duke's uncourteously rejected, but 2, 90/ 15
in his custody (by the commandment of King Richard 2, 90/ 18
heard, was taken in the council at the Tower 2, 90/ 20
in the council at the Tower), waxed with him 2, 90/ 20
his own deliverance and the Duke's destruction. The Bishop 2, 90/ 21
and the Duke's destruction. The Bishop was a man 2, 90/ 22
had been fast upon the part of King Henry 2, 90/ 24
in woe, but fled the realm with the Queen 2, 90/ 25
fled the realm with the Queen and the Prince 2, 90/ 25
with the Queen and the Prince while King Edward 2, 90/ 26
while King Edward had the King in prison -- 2, 90/ 26
came home but to the field. After which lost 2, 91/ 1
that party utterly subdued, the other, for his fast 2, 91/ 2
death first taken by the tyrant for his troth 2, 91/ 6
for his troth to the King -- found the 2, 91/ 6
the King -- found the means to set this 2, 91/ 6
King Henry, devising first the marriage between him and 2, 91/ 8
with infinite benefit to the realm by the conjunction 2, 91/ 10
to the realm by the conjunction of those two 2, 91/ 10
titles had long inquieted the land -- he fled 2, 91/ 11
land -- he fled the realm, went to Rome 2, 91/ 12
more to meddle with the world, till the noble 2, 91/ 12
with the world, till the noble prince King Henry 2, 91/ 13
Chancellor of England, whereunto the Pope joined the honor 2, 91/ 15
whereunto the Pope joined the honor of Cardinal. Thus 2, 91/ 15
to tell you, by the long and often alternate 2, 91/ 18
gotten by great experience (the very mother and mistress 2, 91/ 19
praises; and, perceiving by the process of their communications 2, 91/ 23
process of their communications the Duke's pride now and 2, 91/ 23
braid of envy toward the glory of the King 2, 91/ 24
toward the glory of the King, and thereby feeling 2, 91/ 24
to fall out if the matter were well-handled, he 2, 91/ 25
well-handled, he craftily sought the ways to prick him 2, 91/ 26
forward -- taking always the occasion of his coming 2, 91/ 26
lead him. For when the Duke first began to 2, 92/ 2
to praise and boast the King and show how 2, 92/ 3
show how much profit the realm should take by 2, 92/ 3
if I would swear the contrary, Your Lordship would 2, 92/ 5
believe but that if the world would have gone 2, 92/ 6
Henry's son had had the crown, and not King 2, 92/ 7
dead man strive against the quick. So was I 2, 92/ 10
succeeded him. Howbeit, if the secret judgment of God 2, 92/ 12
down. And as for the late Protector and now 2, 92/ 14
meddled too much with the world, and would from 2, 92/ 15
no farther. Then longed the Duke sore to hear 2, 92/ 17
because he ended with the "King," and there so 2, 92/ 18
him so, familiarly between the twain, to be bold 2, 92/ 19
which he said was the only cause for which 2, 92/ 23
which he procured of the King to have him 2, 92/ 23
he been put in the hands of them with 2, 92/ 25
should not have found the like favor. The Bishop 2, 92/ 26
found the like favor. The Bishop right humbly thanked 2, 92/ 26
out of peril, though the word be without fault 2, 92/ 28
not be taken as the party meant it, but 2, 92/ 29
but as it pleaseth the prince to construe it 2, 93/ 1
Aesop's tale, that when the lion had proclaimed that 2, 93/ 2

beasts." "What, fool?" quoth the fox. "Thou mayest abide 2, 93/ 7
abide well enough -- the lion meant not by 2, 93/ 8
am I then?'" The Duke laughed merrily at 2, 93/ 10
Duke laughed merrily at the tale, and said, "My 2, 93/ 10
I warrant you, neither the lion nor the boar 2, 93/ 11
neither the lion nor the boar shall pick any 2, 93/ 11
good faith, sir," said the Bishop, "if it did 2, 93/ 13
Bishop, "if it did, the thing that I was 2, 93/ 13
to less." Then longed the Duke yet much more 2, 93/ 16
what it was. Whereupon the Bishop said, "In good 2, 93/ 17
my lord, as for the late Protector, since he 2, 93/ 18
his title. But for the weal of this realm 2, 93/ 19
His Grace hath now the governance, and whereof I 2, 93/ 20
have pleased God, for the better store, to have 2, 93/ 23
excellent virtues meet for the rule of a realm 2, 93/ 24
