1296: Annexation of Scotland by England. Scotland's Coronation Stone - the "Stone of Destiny" or "Stone of Scone" - was moved to Westminster Abbey (in London) by the English King Edward (Longshanks). The stone was temporarily returned to Scotland in 1950 and finally returned in 1996, where it stands on display today. In a news report in 2008, 1st Minister Alex Salmond had proclaimed that the "Stone of Destiny" is a fake.

Henry de Bohun:
King John bestowed Henry de Bohun’s title upon him on April 28, 1200 where upon he Married Maud de Mandeville, Countess of Essex. Henry's grandfather, Humphrey had inherited the greater part of Miles de Gloucester's possessions on the extinction of the male line, by marrying his eldest daughter Margaret de Pîtres. Henry was the nephew of King William the Lion of Scotland. His mother, Margaret of Huntingdon was King William's sister. Henry and other nobles summoned King William to do homage at Lincoln in 1201.Supported King John (Lackland) when Normandy was reclaimed by France in 1204.Took part in the revolt of the barons which resulted in the signing of the Magna Carta at Runnymede on 12 July 1215. Henry de Bohun was one of the signatories and was as one of 25 barons elected to police it. When the revolt restarted, King John had Pope Innocent III excommunicate Henry de Bohun. King John died on October 19, 1216 but Henry de Bohun did not ally himself with the new king, Henry III. He was taken prisoner at the Battle of Lincoln on 20 May 1217.Henry de Bohun died on 1 June 1220 while on pilgrimage to the Holy Land. His body was returned and buried at Llanthony Secunda Priory, Gloucester. The name of Bohun suggests Hereford. Hereford Castle was built in 1048 and unfortunately, does not exist today. All that is left  is the moat and bailey. The mound has been leveled to the ground, but the bailey is outlined by high banks. One report has it that all that remains is a platform and a piece of a ditch. The Castle was once situated near the present Bishop's Palace. It was seriously damaged in an attack in 1055, but it was restored, and was again in use in 1067. The site which it now occupies is a public garden, covered with shrubbery and flowers. An ornamental lake indicates where the moat was, but the outlines of the walls are shown only by grass covered ridges.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How the dynasty ended for the de Bohun Family……………………
Humphrey de Bohun X, 7th Earl of Hereford did not leave any male heirs, so consequently the de Bohun inheritance descended into the Dukes of Buckinghamshire and the Crown. Other possessions devolved upon the House of Lancaster. An engraving of the last known de Bohun of nobility can be seen at Latton Church, Essex, England.

How the Rulings work for the Royalty in Scotland & England

Under Scottish & British rules, whenever the Royal family fails to produce a male child,

The property that belonged to that line of family is given to another member of the family that has a Male figurehead, this rule also is applicable to the reign of power in Scotland.

It was under this ruling that the MacAlpin family lost their reign of power, which lasted close to 700 years.

History of the BOHUN FAMILY

Henry De BOHUN

Born: BEF 975

Notes: Following tradition, the Mari family lived in the community of St. Come du Mont (Normandy). There was a Mari Street named after Ralph, first sire de Mari, friend of the sire of Sainte Marie du Mont and the dukes of Denmark.

According to legend, Ralph was secretly married to the daughter of the lord of Mont Haguez. They had a son, Richard I de Mari, or Richard the Old, who is attributed with the founding of the churches of Sainte Come du Mont, de Bohon, and de Meautis in 950.

Richard de Mari (or Meri) married Billeheude (Billeheust). This information comes from a document concerning the Bohon priory. Billeheude is sometimes considered the daughter of a certain Richard de Billeheust or Richard de Saint Sauveur. In the family we find a Bileud or Bilelde, but at a later date she is considered the daughter of Neel II of Saint Saveur, one of the principal barons who revolted against William the Bastard during his youth. Because of the uncertain relations with the Norsemen who landed at Contentin and their chief, Rollo, there was a strong desire to unite the conquering and native peoples. The Mari family also desired to hold onto their Christian origins and remain loyal to the dukes of Normandy. Richard de Mari had three sons: Richard, Humphrey, and Enjuger.

Notes of Brittany: the Early Middle Ages

Around 500 AD, the Roman troops were withdrawing. Some British authors (Nennius, Gildas) mention Britons fleeing to Armorica to escape the invading Anglo-Saxons and Scoti. These Britons gave the region its current name and contributed to the Breton language, Brezhoneg, a sister language to Welsh and Cornish. (Brittany used to be known in English as Little Britain to distinguish it from Great Britain - the street in London called Little Britain was the location of the embassy of the Duchy of Brittany). Citizens from Brittany are called "BRETONS", not to be confused with British citizens from England. Conan Meriadoc, the founder of the house of Rohan is mentioned by medieval Welsh Sources as having led the settlement of Brittany by Welsh mercenaries, who married native women after cutting out their tongues to preserve the purity of their language.

In the Early Middle Ages, Brittany was divided into three kingdoms - Domnonia, Cornouaille, and Bro Waroch - which eventually were incorporated into the Duchy of Brittany.

Notes of Brittany: the Middle Ages

Bretons took part in the Revolt of 1173-1174 siding with the rebels against Henry II of England.

The Breton War of Succession was fought 1341-1364.

The Kingdom of France defeated the Breton ar in 1488 and the last Duke of independent Brittany was forced to submit to a treaty giving the King of France the right to determine the marriage of the Duke's daughter, the heir to the Duchy. The Duchess Anne was the last independent ruler of the duchy as she was ultimately obliged to marry Louis XII of France. The duchy passed on her death to her daughter Claude, but Claude's husband François I incorporated the duchy into the Kingdom of France in 1532.

More Notes of Brittany:

Human habitation in the area now called Brittany goes back to the late Paleolithic, or Epi-Palaeolithic, period. Megaliths erected in the 5th millennium BC are the best known Neolithic remains. Roman Sources record the tribes of the Veneti, Armoricani, Osismii, Namnetes and Coriosolites as inhabiting the area in the iron age. In 56 BC, the area was conquered by the Romans under Julius Caesar. The Romans called the district Armorica (a Latinisation of a Celtic word meaning "coastal region"), or Gallia Lugdunensis. The modern département of Côtes-d'Armor has taken up the ancient name. The uprising of the Bagaudae in the 3rd century AD led to the destruction of villages and to depopulation. By the 4th century AD Romano-British tribes from across the English Channel started to settle. This flow of Britons increased when Roman troops and authority were withdrawn from Britain, and raiding and settling by Anglo-Saxons and Scots into Britain increased. The immigrant Britons gave the region its current name and contributed to the Breton language, Brezhoneg, a sister language to Welsh and Cornish. The name Brittany (from "Little Britain") derived to distinguish the region from "Great Britain" in this time. In the early Middle Ages, Brittany was divided into three kingdoms - Domnonia, Cornouaille, and Bro Waroch - which eventually were incorporated into the Duchy of Brittany.

The Kingdom of France defeated the Breton army in 1488 and the last Duke of independent Brittany was forced to submit to a treaty giving the King of France the right to determine the marriage of the Duke's daughter, the heir to the Duchy. The Duchess Anne was the last independent ruler of the duchy as she was ultimately obliged to marry Louis XII of France. The duchy passed on her death to her daughter Claude, but Claude's husband François I incorporated the duchy into the Kingdom of France in 1532. The duchy kept specific laws and taxes until 1790, when the French revolutionaries withdrew all the "privileges" (specific rules for certain communities or regions).

Even though William Wallace was not related to these families, I strongly feel his role in Scottish history deserves mention here .

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

William Wallace (1272-1305), from which the movie, “ Braveheart” (though it was not even slightly historically accurate), was based upon, was deceived by his fellow royal Scotsmen, and was captured and beheaded by King Edward I “Longshanks” of England. On 23rd August 1305, he was executed. At that time (and for the next 550 years), the punishment for the crime of treason was that the convicted traitor was dragged to the same place of execution, hanged by the neck (but not until he was dead), and disemboweled (or drawn) while still alive. His entrails (The internal organs, especially the intestines; viscera) were burned before his eyes, he was decapitated and his body was divided into four parts (or quartered). Accordingly, as this was to be this was Wallace's fate. His head was impaled on a spike and displayed at London Bridge, his right arm on the bridge at Newcastle-upon-Tyne, his left arm at Berwick, his right leg at Perth, and the left leg at Aberdeen. Edward may have believed that with Wallace's capture and execution, he had at last broken the spirit of the Scottish people. By executing William Wallace so barbarically, King Edward made a martyr of a popular Scotland military leader and fired up the Scottish people's determination to be free. Almost immediately, Robert the Bruce revived the national rebellion that was to win independence for Scotland. He succeeded and was crowned king of Scotland in 1316. The years that William Wallace disappeared, (1290-1305) are the years that Wallace went into the forest, menacing the British with every opportunity he had. This is when & where the legend of Robin Hood grew from. Whether there is any truth or if it's just a myth to the legend of Robin Hood, there is no evidence either way.     

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

William Wallace: A TRIAL WITHOUT JUSTICE

So it was that the great legal reformer, Edward I, conducted a show trial on August 23, 1305. As he was taken to Westminster Hall, William Wallace was led through the streets of London where people jeered and pelted him with rotten food. He was charged with treason, among other things. When he arrived at Westminster Hall, a crown of laurel was placed on his head. Wasn't he, after all, trying to wear the Scottish crown? Since the English considered Wallace to be an "outlaw," he was treated outside the boundaries of the law. He had no lawyer. He was not even allowed to speak on his own behalf. The outcome of the trial (a guilty verdict) and the punishment (death) was assured long before Wallace was captured. The great lawgiver of The Middle Ages, Edward I, who created the system of barristers still in use today, did not even allow a barrister to speak for Wallace. The trial was a mockery of justice. Only once did Wallace speak, when he shouted out at Sir Peter Mallorie who formally accused Wallace of treason: "I can not be a traitor, for I owe him (referring to King Edward I “Longshanks” of England), no allegiance. He is not my Sovereign; he never received my homage; and whilst life is in this persecuted body, he shall never receive it."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The British treatment of Scotsman William Wallace will forever live in infamy in British shame, where such a travesty of justice such as never been seen in Scottish history, but unfortunatly, time & time will be repeated over and over proving that the Britons made justice how they so deemed it be.
