"Edward I (17 June 1239 ? 7 July 1307), also known as Edward Longshanks and the Hammer of the Scots (Latin: Malleus Scotorum), was King of England from 1272 to 1307. The first son of Henry III, Edward was involved early in the political intrigues of his father's reign, which included an outright rebellion by the English barons. In 1259, he briefly sided with a baronial reform movement, supporting the Provisions of Oxford. After reconciliation with his father, however, he remained loyal throughout the subsequent armed conflict, known as the Second Barons' War. After the Battle of Lewes, Edward was hostage to the rebellious barons, but escaped after a few months and joined the fight against Simon de Montfort. Montfort was defeated at the Battle of Evesham in 1265, and within two years the rebellion was extinguished. With England pacified, Edward left on a crusade to the Holy Land. The crusade accomplished little, and Edward was on his way home in 1272 when he was informed that his father had died. Making a slow return, he reached England in 1274 and he was crowned king at Westminster on 19 August. He spent much of his reign reforming royal administration and common law."--Wikipedia

Excerpt from "A History of Politics": Some ten years ago Sir Frederick Pollock published a valuable and interesting little book on the history of political speculation. But the author is not aware that any one has yet attempted to summarize in a brief, popular form, the record of political action. It has occurred, therefore, to the promoters of this Series that such a summary might prove interesting, if only by way of comparison. These pages profess to give, then, a brief account of what men have done, not of what they have thought, in that important branch of human activity which we call Politics, or the Art of Government. But if it should be objected that what men do is really always the outcome, more or less perfect, of what they think, the answer is, that we recognize, for practical purposes, a distinction between what the world, in theory at least, believes to be best, and that which it actually succeeds in achieving. And a comparison of the two objects can hardly fail to be instructive
