The King of England They Never Told You About

Louis I of England, the once and almost king

William Conqueror, the First of His Name

Henry Bolingbroke, the Fifth of His Name

Henry Six Wives, the Eighth of His Name…

John may or may not have been evil personified, as historians today still debate, but he was capricious and cruel. Louis, on the other hand, was regarded as ‘honest, just, moral and a man of his word’.
