Ich, the Black Prince, Dien the Red Dragon
(I, the Black Prince, serve the Red Dragon)
The Black Prince was a heroic military leader who defeated the French
several times when greatly outnumbered. His most spectacular victory was
when he lured the French army onto the coastal tidal plain. When the Black
Prince reached high ground he turned and repulsed the French who were
drowned enmass by the incoming tide. The Black Prince died young.
I don't know what was meant by "the Red Dragon".
The three Edwards descend from King Henry II,who was depicted by Peter
O'Toole and his Queen,Eleanor of Aquitaine,was played by Katherine Hepburn.
Their two sons were Richard the Lionheart and bad King John[who inspired the
imposition of the Magna Carta].
King Edward I was the king depicted in the movie "Braveheart". The
sniviling son was the king to be,Edward II,a homosexual who was murdered by
thrusting a redhot firepoker up his rear. His boyfriend,Piers deGaveston,was
drawn & quartered.
King Henry II descended from William the Conquerer who conquered England in
one day. William the Conquerer descended from the viking Rollo,the first
Duke of Normandy. Another side of Henry II's family was Fulk le Strange.
Fulk's grandmother was considered so evil that when the family drug her to
church and she was doused with holy water,she vanished in a puff of smoke
that smelled of brimstone.
All the above is from the series of books by John Costain.
