June 19th - death of Piers Gaveston.
I have been so busy lately and have neglected this blog, but of course I cannot let today pass without mentioning the anniversary of the shameful 'execution' of Piers Gaveston. Both Guy of Warwick and Thomas of Lancaster let their jealousy get the better of them and had Piers killed without a proper trial. Little did they know they would unleash the vengeance of Edward II. RIP Piers.
